    Bonding to make a trio

    Hi, I have just adopted a pair of sows and am hoping that I can introduce a younger sow to form a trio. Obviously I have to wait a couple of weeks or more for them to settle in and trust us, but would it work trying to do this? The pair I have are 1 years old. (Photo from previous owner)

    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. I got up to check on them and Bunny - the (neutered) boar and leader - was chasing my three girls...

    Big guinea pig?

    I have a herd of 4 - one neutered boar and three sows. I recently noticed 1 year old, Athena, getting bigger. At first I was scared of pregnancy, but I’ve checked many times, and am positive everyone besides Bunny (the neutered boar) is female. My next thought was bloating, however when I felt...

    Human trapped in guinea pig

    Hey, I'm a bit bewildered at my guinea pigs behaviour and have tried searching it up everywhere but have found nothing. It is honestly like she's a human in a guinea pig body, she even looks a bit human in the eyes. Like she understands me. When my other piggies are drinking or eating, she'll...

    Neuter and cage mates

    Hi everyone! Our young boar is due to be neutered next week. I was wondering if he can be returned to the same cage as our two females (the two girls are spayed) immediately or if I should give it some time? Thank you all

    Duo to herd

    Hello everyone! I have two female guinea pigs Currently. Getting ready to upgrade to a larger habitat 3x5 c&c with a loft (possibly 2x6 undecided). I’m really wanting to add a third because I’ve read and heard that a “herd” is more social and comfort in numbers for them. As a third is it better...

    Male Trio? Neutering? Male herds?

    So I’ve been talking to my friend who’s old classmate is trying to rehome their two male guinea pigs, for a few months now. They asked me several months ago (right after I got my two girls) and I was thinking about getting them but they never responded. Until like a week ago, and she told me...

    My mom says that having one guinea pig is fine...

    Hi, I recently lost my guinea pig Prim a few weeks ago. It was heartbreaking, especially to see my other pig Rosie be by herself for the first time in her life. Now she never really comes out of her igloo,except to eat, even though she has a spacious c&c cage big enough for two pigs. I know...

    Depression In Piggies?

    Hi everyone, I have 3 lovely piggies who live together full-time, 2 females (Muffin and Martha) and one boy (Ice Cream). Recently Martha and Ice Cream have been a bit unsocial, often hiding away under their castles for long periods, sleeping a bit more than usual. Muffin is behaving her usual...

    Herd Size

    This is probably a dumb question, but does it take a certain number of piggies to make a herd? Also, I want a good size herd but I'm not sure how many I should have. Any suggestions?

    When Is It Time To Increase Herd Size?

    I haven't been able to find any literature online about this topic, so here goes -- We have two bonded sows, who get along fine, and are spoiled by us humans to death. I have been wondering how we decide if they need or should enjoy having a third member join their herd? How does someone...
