    Hello you wonderful bunch! Is it better to put multiple tunnels in their hutch or fewer so they have room to run around? My 2 are in their pen with lots of tunnels/huts during the day. At night they are put into their hutch which has a ramp in the middle going up to the upstairs ‘bedroom’...

    2 Or 3 Sows?

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. I haven't had guinea pigs for several years and have previously had at different times pairs of sows.
