    2 Male Guinea Pigs, 1 New Male! Help!

    Hey! So me & my girlfriend rescued a guinea pig last year from a local SPCA. (His name is Felix). He was only 2 months old, and about a month after getting him we decided to get another.

    Aggressive Female + Shy Female

    I have had a female guinea pig named Macy for nearly two years, I got her by herself because my parents only let me get one at the time. Recently I got a baby guinea pig (female as well) and she is only two months. I was expecting it to be a bit difficult with Macy as she's been alone for so...

    Teeth Chattering - Fast And Slow

    I've read that fast teeth chattering is meant aggressively, but is that always the case? Could it sometimes be meant defensively if a pig is feeling a little unsure or nervous? When I feed my piggies their fresh fruit and veg, Jasmine has occasionally approached the bars of the cage chattering...

    Beans Has Became Very Aggressive

    So I'm having issues with Beans just now and I'm not sure what's causing it, there are maybe 2 things going on, which is why I wasn't sure where to put this thread. (Sorry if it's in the wrong one I thought maybe behaviour and bonding too?) Beans has became very aggressive with Maple since...

    Another Mo & Steve Query

    So by now I'm guessing Steve has gone through his teenage hormone stage. He's testicles have descended etc and he's definitely bigger then he was. Last night and now tonight (can't speak for the day as I wasn't here all day) They seem a bit uptight with each other. No full on biting or any real...
