The young boy rumble struts a lot. Him and one of the older girls...

    Aggressive guinea pig with new pigs

    Hello all! Last year I adopted 3 guinea pigs that I absolutely loved, so I decided to get two more. I isolated the New Guinea pigs in a cage right next to the other 3 for about two weeks then introduced them to my other 3 pigs. Unfortunately it didn’t go well. Lillie, my most dominate old pig...

    Sudden change in behaviour... ptsd?

    Hi I’m quite new to this but I needed some advice on my guinea pigs. So bit of a backstory, I had two pigs but one sadly passed away, and a few months after I got another baby one. This baby one (now nearly 1) and my older (about 3 and a half) used to get on really well, until last week. Loca...

    Lump on back

    Hi I’m looking for opinions as my guinea pig Bean has got a lump on the bottom of her back just above her bum. When I touch it she moves away but doesnt squeal. She’s eating and drinking fine, I only found the lump last night and ever since then she’s been very feisty with my other Guinea pig...

    Boar bites my face

    Hi, Often, when I’m having lap time with my oldest guy, he seems to go crazy and starts « attacking » my face. He wheeks and comes running toward my face and tries to bite me. He always did that eversince he is young but I never understood why. I don’t think he hates me, because he will come see...

    Tries to Jump Out Arms

    When I have Holly in a blanket or towel and are bringing her back to her cage, she’ll climb over anything and try to jump off the towel into her cage! Many times I have dropped her and felt guilty, and then felt mixed emotions because she’s the one who tried to get off! It is driving me crazy...

    Weird behavior

    Hi everyone, I got my little girl pickles about 2 months ago. She is very loud and popcorns often. She does, however, have some weird behaviors I’d like to ask about as I’m worried about my baby. They thought she was about 4 months old when I got her. She looooves cuddles to the point where she...

    Desperate running away during laptime?

    Hi there! I've had my piggy Latte for 2 weeks now and have been handling him often every day. I usually bring him to bed whenever I feed him his veggies and for the first week and a half he would usually be fairly still and I'd let him hide and run around under the blankets, but now he'll eat...

    Two angry male guinea pigs

    Hi all, Two weeks ago I got two male 7 month old guinea pigs, Louis and Charles. They are brothers and I’ve housed them in the same Midwest cage. Everything was fine and dandy until just tonight I let them out of their cage to play on the living room floor. They were zooming around, eating...

    Mom guinea pig fights with her two three month old daughters

    Hello! A while back, I've made a thread on my mom guinea pig Akira, who bit her son when he was one week old. I was told that it was normal, that it was just her way of "spanking" him and how she's the superior of the group. It's been a few months now since then, and I have Akira with her two...

    Introducing a female guineapig

    Hi everyone! I’m looking for a bit of advice as we’ve had a situation with our boar pigs which has resulted in us having to separate one of them. We had three boars together and over the past month or so they’ve fallen out. I’ve deduced that they started to get territorial as they have reached...

    Constant Butt Grooming/Licking/Nipping?

    I have three female guinea pigs. One of them has recently developed a very annoying habit. She chases after the other two and seems to be grooming and nipping at their butts. They hate it and cry out while trying to run away. What could this be and how can I stop it? I tried to research it and...

    Female Dominance or Bullying?

    Two months ago, I rescued two female guinea pigs from a friend whose family found them in their wood pile. They came in a pet store cage with one single-entrance hideaway. That’s when I noticed Binx (presumably the older one) showing dominance towards Buffy by not letting her into/out of the...

    Crunched Up In A Corner All Day!

    My older guinea pig, Jake, is always teeth chattering around Winnie, the younger one, and always chases him around. Now, Winnie stays in a corner all day and I don't think he's eating. He even poops and pees there and just stays there. I think it has something to do with Jake chasing him around...
