    Very Aggressive Female

    Hello. I REALLY need some help. I've had guinea pigs for many years now, and never had any issues with aggression. The most recent addition to my pig family has unfortunately changed that. As time passes she just keeps becoming more aggressive, and I don't know what to do. I've looked everywhere...

    Anyone know what this behavior is? It sometimes can look like Moose (mom) is kicking Coco (baby). It's putting everyone on edge.

    See title. Moose has been kicking and throwing her butt and her baby recently. I have never seen this behavior before in any of my other guinea pigs. Should I separate them?

    Guinea pigs have started fighting.. is their cage too small?

    4 females in the cage, one of which is pregnant. It is the pregnant pig starting the fights and I don’t know if their cage is too small or if it’s just because she is pregnant. They’ve been together for as long as I’ve had them without any issues but since this one got pregnant (accidentally...

    Hello! A while back, I've made a thread on my mom guinea pig Akira, who bit her son when he was one week old.

    I'm looking at having Maple spayed but I'd like some opinions first. I'm thinking about this because when Maple comes into season, Beans becomes very aggressive with her and bullies her to the point where she doesn't eat or move, Beans corners and will attack her (biting and lunging) and I...
