    Guinea Pig isn't scared of anything?

    Hi all, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about this personality trait at all haha! But, ever since I got my trio of Guinea Pigs, a neutered boar (around 3yo) and two sows (around 2yo), the girls have been petrified, hiding constantly, and only have just started to come out of their shell...

    rats & guineas?

    Hi all! I’ve gotten settled with my two guinea pigs and recently Ive been thinking of getting a couple of pet rats. Currently my guineas are in a C&C type cage with an open top in my bedroom. I’d have to also keep the rats in my bedroom, as my family won’t allow them anywhere else, but I would...

    Question about bonded male pair

    Hello! A few days ago we began fostering a bonded male pair: Jake and John. We have one male of our own and their C&C cages are next to each other separated by a partition so they can interact through the bars. Everything was running smoothly until this morning. Jake has been aggressively...

    Haven't been here much lately, being a guinea pig mama keeps you real busy. Just wanted to share a couple pics of Chip and Chuck, our latest additions to our family.

    Unknown Illness?

    Hello everyone! I own four female adult guinea pigs, kept in a large enclosure, so they have enough free space. However, I am having issues with two of my guinea pigs and I'm desperate for answers, it is causing a lot of stress for me and others in the household- as well as the pigs too. We...

    How noisy are guinea pigs? Are they suitable to be placed in a home office/study?

    Just that really. The only viable place in my home for pets is my home office. I would probably be returning to the office but would work out of my home office sporadically (esp as home working is becoming more common), and I have constant Teams Calls. I currently have a Syrian hamster in my...

    Is fear of certain foods normal?

    I have two guinea pigs and I'm starting to realize that my one named Skittle has a fear of certain fruits, specifically cantaloupe and blueberries. Not only will he refuse to eat them, but run away and/or chitter at me when I try to offer them by hand. My other boar(Parrot) doesn't do this so I...

    Guinea Pigs as Humans!?

    Hello fellow forum members! So I was being creative and whatnot then decided to draw my guinea pigs as humans. When I finished, I had an idea to put it on here! So...here they are! I’m not that good so...they’re not amazing. I would love it if the artistic people (or if you’re not that’s fine...

    Guinea Pig Breeders

    I was a little taken aback after discovering how truly hated breeders are by the vast majority of guinea pig owners. Now yes, I completely 100% agree with the reasons against breeders: yes there are too many in shelters, yes it can be dangerous for the sows and yes, people should not breed with...

    Is Hay Rattle/Yellow Rattle poisonous to guinea pigs?

    Hi all, With it being winter, we're using a lot more hay than usual for our guinea pigs to use as bedding and also to eat as they quite enjoy it. The only problem is that the best hay we can find has tonnes of Hay Rattle/Yellow Rattle seeds in it (literally in every handful of hay) and we're...
