    Shy male and talkative Female guinea pig bonding. Any advice?

    Sorry if this is too long. So I have a 2 year old male guinea pig and I recently got a baby female to get him out of his shell because he is very shy. They are in separate cages for now until he gets neutered and even then I want to wait for her to grow up a bit so they'll be apart for a...

    Bonding

    Hello everyone! I’m new to Guinea pigs but I’ve done EXTENSIVE research on them. I have a 7 month old & a 4 month old, both males. I had the oldest first and got him a friend. My problem is the bonding. So I put them in a neutral area with lots of hay. Lots of snacks. There has been ZERO...

    My senior guinea passed away about a month ago, and and decided to go on the hunt for a partner for my living guinea pig, Mocha, who is ~ 3.5 years old. I went to a local rescue and was able to adopt Tammy who is about ~ 3 years old. Just to give you guys the backstory. We attempted the bonding...

    Successfully Bonded?

    Hi So I have two boars that I've been working on bonding for months now. They are housed in side by side runs and I've been getting them out in a neutral area for play sessions. They are finally showing signs of being happy together (i.e laying down together, sharing hay etc), but I don't...

    Now husboar looking forward to re-unite with his mother and sister; pre-bonding questions

    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...

    Bonding Issues/Questions (Boars)

    Hello all I apologize in advance for the long explanation, I'll start out with a bit of intro. A couple years back my sister got a guinea pig. His name is Bleu.

    Bonding two girls

    I have Chavela (1.5 years old, darker brown) and my yet-to-be-named piggie (almost a year, light brown). I’ve been trying to bond for about 4 months. At the first meet they were doing pretty good for the first 20 minutes but then I had to separate them. I put them in a split cage so they can...

    Desperate for help with 2 failed bondings

    Unfortunately I've ended up with 2 single pigs separated after a failed bonding and I'm desperate to know if anyone thinks there is any hope at all to salvage this bonding. I got Coconut, an 18 month sow, approx 6 months ago, for my 3 year old sow, Biscuit, who was left solo after her sister...

    Bonding - A couple of questions!

    Our 2.5 year old female guinea pig lost its mate a few weeks ago. We have bought a baby female and kept them in separate accommodation 4 days and swapped fleecy items during this time too.

    Boar Bonding

    Hi there, I haven't owned piggies in a few years, and have never kept boys before. I recently got a 15 week old boar and then a bigger boar (the person who sold him to me claimed he was also 15 weeks but he seems a bit older to me) to live with him. They are still absolutely terrified of me, and...

    Bonding seperation?

    So a few days ago I upgraded the cage of my 3 year old pig and it is now big enough to host 2-3 pigs. I have 3 pigs and Finnian has been left by himself because he was not able to establish dominance and get along with the other two. Today, I tried again for the first time in over a year to get...

    Adding a neut'd boar to pair of females?

    We are relatively new GP owners, having adopted 2 beautiful girls from our local rescue center nearly 6 months ago. We love them dearly, and they have become friendly and loving to us, with lots of cuddles and lap time each day. I've seen that another rescue center near us has got a neutered...
