    Guinea Pig Chirping Research - Data Needed

    Hello everyone! Recently, (after spending a night sleepless every 2 weeks or so) I started wondering about the possible reasons for chirping (bird sounds) in guinea pigs. As is well-known, only a relatively small subset of all GPs produce this sound, and it always seem to occur at night...

    Chirping!!

    I was dozing off last night when I was woken by a squeaky sound. When I opened the door I realised it was coming from downstairs. I switched the light on and it stopped! I sat on the stairs for a minute then went to check on the boys. They were just standing there staring and unmoving! I went...

    Statistically Impossible!

    So here I am watching Big Bang Theory re-runs and I hear some chirping. I immediately look for Cissy, it's not her. So I look to Bella and it's not her either. IT WAS IGGY. I have another chirping pig? This must surely be a learned behaviour as it's statistically unlikely, perhaps even...

    Singing Cissy!

    Cissy is a bit rusty, but she's still got it! Iggy is confused and not all that impressed :)) Hopefully the links have worked! Apologies for the darkness, I didn't want to disrupt her :) Please ignore the Dominos boxes :shh:

    Chirping Again!

    As some of you may know, I have a singing pig called Cissy. She now sings in front of me which is lovely, usually when I'm giving her sister a stroke. But tonight during lap time (she was having a cuddle with my mum) she started to chirp! Right on my mums chest! Twice! Has anyone had...

    Were They...chirping?!

    SOOOOOO. Few minutes ago, my mum and I heard this weird, weird noise. It was really quite loud, like a CHEE-CHEE-CHEE-CHEE-CHEE. And I thought, is it someone playing silly beggars, or a weird bird outside practising karaoke? So I got up, and when I went near the piggy room it sounded louder, but...

    I've Just Seen/heard Rhona Chirping...

    Was sat watching TV and heard a loud birdlike chirp from the pig room. Rushed in to find Rhona (only about six weeks old) sat under a wooden bridge chirping like a mad thing. To be honest it was downright spooky as the other twelve girls (including week old Zelah) were stood completely still...

    Callie Chirping! (videos Included)

    Callie started going through puberty a couple of weeks ago. Besides the increase in energy, brattiness, and weight, she's started chirping! :lol: I've never owned a chirping guinea pig before, so I was in awe when I heard it for the first time. She does it at random times throughout the day...
