    Pairing adult boar with baby boar

    We just adopted a 2 year old Guinea pig boar 2 days ago for my son. I personally am committed to his ultimate care. I’ve had Guinea pigs in the past many years ago so I considered myself an experienced owner, however, I see that much has changed since the days of yesteryear and that I in fact...

    Anyone know what this behavior is? It sometimes can look like Moose (mom) is kicking Coco (baby). It's putting everyone on edge.

    See title. Moose has been kicking and throwing her butt and her baby recently. I have never seen this behavior before in any of my other guinea pigs. Should I separate them?

    Baby Guinea pig barely eats and drinks

    So I just got a g/p today and I suppose its understandable that its scared and shy. I am a bit troubled though since it hasnt drunk any water and only ate very little. Is there anything I can do or will it eventually eat on its own?

    I have a 1 year and 1 month old guinea pig who lives in the same cage as a 3 month old guinea pig. Should I feed pellets and hay made for adult guinea pigs or ones made for baby guinea pigs?
