    Following my initial thread, which can be found here... I have now reached a stage where bonding is finally going to happen soon. First the boar had to be 6 months before neutering could be done, then I was told by the vet that he had to be at least 1kg, because otherwise there could be...

    Soon to be husboar joining his mother hand sister finally forever

    As a first time guinea pig owner and after reading a lot about them, I decided to have just two female guinea pigs who were about 2,5 months old when I got them. I was told they had been together since birth so they got along very well. I built them a 6 x 2,1 C&C cage. They had lots of space and...

    Can I add a baby boy to an adult pair of boys?

    So, we adopted a baby boy who is just so precious. I know I didn’t research the bonding process before, and now all I am reading is how adding a third can disrupt the dynamic of the pair. Right now I have the baby in his own cage to start “introducing” them, and I was going to introduce one at a...

    Bonding help

    I’m currently attempting to bond an already bonded pair of sows with my lone girl. After lots of teeth chattering, rumbling, a few lunges and and chasing, all three are finally settled. But I’m worried as it did seem quite aggressive. Can I just leave the three of them together now? Or do they...

    Hello, I got a New Guinea to join my 2 girls. The new one (s’more) and my youngest (cricket) didn’t seem to have any issues, didn’t nip or really seem to care about each other. However s'more and my oldest (poppy) were not so good. S’more is a lot bigger than both of my girls. S’more nipped as...

    Tricky situation

    Hi, I’m new to this forum and new to piggies, having only become an owner 2 months ago. We thought we’d been sold a pair of girls but we found out last week that one of them was pregnant! We asked the vet to check the other to see if it was a boy after all but the vets collectively couldn’t be...

    3 Male guinea pigs bonding problem

    I recently got two male guinea pigs for my senior guinea pig, whose cage mate died in March. Right away during the bonding time, my senior guinea pig (Coco) started humping and nibbling the other guinea pigs. Since nothing out of ordinary was going on, I continued with the bonding process and...

    Hi I have two 3 1/2 month old females and have seen an advert in my local area for a 5 month old female who is alone due to another pig passing.

    Should I get my (male) guinea pig a friend?

    I had females growing up and introducing them was pretty easy. I’ve heard boys are a lot more difficult. I adopted my boy, Wilbur, about a year and a half ago. He’s about 3-4 now, and I was told he lived on his own his whole life but seemed interested in the guinea pigs in the neighboring cage...
