    Newbie here - will my baby sows become friends?

    I got three girls a few days ago, they’re around 8 weeks old. They’re in a pretty huge hutch but I’ve only got them in one level at the moment while they’re so tiny so a standard indoor it and outdoor bit. Two look very similar and are noticeably close, the other (cookie) is a totally dif colour...

    Safe to have the flu in the same room?

    Hello, everyone! So last night started having a terrible cold and this morning woke up to be sure I've got the flu. I live in a shared house so I keep my piggies in my room. They're about 2.5meters away from me and I keep the balcony open but I'm scared they might get it too. They're 3 and 6...

    Baby boars, can they go in with dad?

    Hello all. This is my first post but I have been reading various threads and guides for weeks. 5 weeks ago I adopted two boars from the rspca but one was a sow and must've been 4 weeks pregnant already. She had 4 lovely babies, they are now 18 days old, weighing 160 to 190g, I think three boys...

    Separating bonded adult & babies for feeding?

    Hey all, I have 3 bonded guinea pigs (1 adult and 2 babies) currently in a 3x4 C&C, so space isn't an issue for them. In order to feed the babies alfalfa pellets and make sure the adult doesn't eat them, I'm planning to split the space into two 2x3's to separate the adult and the babies. To...

    Hello and advice please on new baby with the runs :-(

    Hi I wish my first thread on here was more cheery but could do with some advice please. We got new babies on Tuesday afternoon (approx 9 weeks), one is a lot more confident & seems to have taken to life with us quicker. So much so he’s been gobbling up food and to be honest I think I’ve...

    Skittish babies :(

    I'm a relatively new piggie mom and after having my young male piggie for a few months we decided to have him neutered so we could adopt a female. Our male is very skittish, he's about 6 months old and since we adopted him a few months ago he's warmed up to us to be able to come up to us when...

    I am in a complicated situation... I adopted two 1 month old guinea pigs having been told they were both male.... turns out after I checked they are brother and sister. The former owner is unreachable (not surprising) and I don't know what to do. The two seem very bonded, and the separation...

    Abyssinian/texel/silkie Mix Babies!

    Two bundles of joy were born under our roof today! We had an accidental pregnancy between two of our rescues when our mischievous Silkie-Mix male tore open his C&C cage wall. (We have many more reinforcements now, and have definitely learned our lesson there.) Our crazy haired texel/Abyssinian...

    Insurance For Babies?

    I was looking at the insurance policy documents and it seems there's an exclusion for pigs younger than 12 weeks if i recall correctly. Wouldn't they be covered then?

    My husband and I are guinea pig parents for the first time! We bought 2 4-month old girls 3 days ago. We got them from Petsmart and they are not used to human contact really at all (from what the employee told us). The night we bought them we put them in their cage and left them alone all night...
