    Possible Pregnancy

    just over a week ago one of my boars escaped into the enclosure with my two girls. He wasn’t in there in the morning, I went out for the day then when I went in around late evening I found him in there so I don’t know how long he was with them. The girls are both nearly 2 years old and I...

    Bonded Boars Suddenly Fighting

    Hi :D I'm new to the forum but writing in desperation in the hope someone can help us out as our past herd was a group of females and have never experienced this before! Little back story, around one year ago we adopted a pair of bonded boars Dan and Darwin (brothers), who were at the time...

    Trio Of Boars?

    I was thinking today, is a trio of boars a common thing? I know a trio of sows is a thing and they get along but would a trio of boars work out? I currently have 2 boars right now and was thinking (of course when they settle in to their C&C cage and get over their dominant stages) of getting...

    Guinea Pig Boars Fighting Over Dominance

    Hey Everyone, This is my first post on the forums and I have a problem as well as a question that I cannot find an answer to anywhere. I have four guinea pigs and they are all males. My friend (the owner of my pigs' parent pigs) assured me that they should get on fine as they are all brothers...

    Successful Bond?

    hi I am currently introducing a sow to a neutered male. My sow has been living with two other sows for 3.5 years but has been showing signs she was being bullied (become skittish/nervous/other steal her food/she is much smaller than the other two but they all happily nap and eat together)...

    Boars Acting Slightly Uneasy Towards Eachother

    Hey, everyone! I think it was around a month ago I bonded my boars. Since the last time I've posted here, I've expanded my cage a lot. Now it is 16 square feet, (or imagine a 4x2 connected to a 2x3 but more space because no closing). They've been really happy in it, they have 3 hideys, a hay...

    Carefresh? Auboise?

    Hi guys I'm looking for an alternative to fleece bedding. I do love the fleece and will keep them on it from time to time but the number of fleeces I go through in a month is high and the washing can be a painful task lol- especially when the washing machine isn't really yours and your mum...

    Trouble With Mo Again

    So before I post my ramble I should probably say that naturally around this time I get extremely anxious regarding the pigs welfare because on the 26th of Jan four days after her birthday my first piggy Vinnie had to be pts. I've posted previously about Mo sometimes squeaking when toileting...

    Guinea Pig Got The Sniffles?

    I noticed recently that my boar (Biscuit) has been a bit sniffly and sounds like he has a bit of a blocked nose. I then realised a few days later my other boar (Ollie) started sniffling as well. Biscuit has now become less interested in his nuggets but does still eat his veggies and hay. Ollie...

    What Would Be The Key Symptoms For Either A Uti Or Bladder Stones?

    Hi guys so a while ago now I posted a thread regarding my eldest boar Mo who was occasionally squeaking while toileting- he'd do it for a day then nothing for a week and then it'd happen again. You all advised keeping an eye on him and taking him to the vets if he did it constantly, I saw blood...

    Calling All Piggies- It Is I Mo!

    "Hi fellow piggies of the forum! I have taken over pig mum's account for a short while as I am not best pleased! I would like to announce that I -yes me- am infact a part time werewolf tamer and unfortunately pigmum doesn't want me to share this secret. I was going to show Simon Cowell on BGT...

    Mo Health (another Poo Thread)

    So how guys me again with yet another thread on poop! I've read the threads and guinea pig lynx website on poos about 100 times and yet everytime I see something a little off I still write a thread- I blame my nerves! Mo is normal in himself -recently seen the vet for his ear (which by the...

    Mo's Ear

    Is This Squabbling Or A Sign The Bond Isn't Going To Work Out? On this thread I shared a picture of Mo's ear that had a white spot on it because I wondered if the pairs squabbling had anything to do with it.I'm happy to say both boars are still together (still the odd squabble though!) Now...

    Is It A Dog Or Mo?

    Does anyone else's guinea pig roll over?! Mo does :lol!: if I stroke him near his belly he rolls over like a dog- must be ticklish! And (as you'll see in the video) when he gets a bit over excited... (This video was taken ages ago Mo was a baby) here I decided to get 'crafty' and make a...

    Floortime

    I never realised how fun floortime could be! The first time I tried it with Mo, I was rather nervous - and he stuck by my side so I think he was too :lol!: but eventually he learnt that my bedroom floor was a safe space and went mental! Now I get them out together as much as possible. I...

    Videos To Help Those Who May Be Thinking Of Bonding Guinea Pigs.

    So I hope these help (other then being adorable LOL) but basically thought I'd share some videos of the behaviour I noticed from Mo when I introduced Steve. Of course I'm sure you will all note the size difference (Steve isn't that small anymore :( ) but you'll also see what many members and...

    Fun Fact- Turns Out Guinea Pigs Can Wear Belts!

    Looking back through my instagram posts today (sad I know...) and realised I hadn't shared with you one of my favourite videos of all time! Back when Mo was a lone piggy this was taken a short while after I thought he had a URI. As you all know, Mo adores a good cardboard tube and here he had...
