Hi everyone! Just wanted some advice/answers to a couple of questions.
Firstly – hay. I give my two girlies loads of hay every day, in two different places, and also in a hay rack. I read that guinea pigs won’t eat hay that they’ve gone to the toilet in, but my girls seem to just go to the...
I made my piggies a new toy yesterday and Jasmine seems to have taken to it already! I can't tell if she has her eyes closed, but it's pretty close. :D
Thanks to Wiebke for the pinned link to Spikes kleine Welt. :)
I haven't been able to find any literature online about this topic, so here goes --

Hey guys :)
