    guinea pig making strange sounds

    My female guinea pig is making a strange noise. She used to make it every night when she was pregnant but now she does it all the time. She seems calm because she just lays there screeches. It’s a high pitch squeal/chirp, it sounds like a microwave beeping but really fast. None of my other pigs...

    Midwest or C&C cage?

    Hi guys, I really want to get some guinea pigs, so I was looking at cages. Is the C&C cage worth it for (I'm looking at the medium with loft) an extra square ft of cage room and five times the cost?

    Lady Pigs Are Giddy...

    Just a quick query, are females udually more vocal than males? My boy sunny is super laiday back and usually only wheeks for food, but Lola.... She burbles non stop, 24/7! I was just curious, is this a female thing or could just be that she's chatty?
