    Hostile boar

    Hello, my herd of four has been introduced for about a month now, and they had been fine. I have my guinea pigs in my bedroom so this morning I woke up to very loud squeaking, some squeaks shrill.

    Bare patch with cut?

    I've recently posted about urgently rescuing a baby guinea pig as it was alone for weeks. This is about the baby. I have noticed that all my piggies apart from one is completely fine with her. I first noticed a small wound on her nose and thought it might have been a warning nip gone too far...

    Okay. So I’ve been wanting to post on here for a while now to get some feedback/insight on the situation with my three nearly 7 month old boys.
