    2 guinea pigs with separate homes next to each other?

    Hi, I have two guinea pigs who used to live together (but had a falling out, probably because their cage wasn't big enough). I've attempted to rebond them again maybe twice but they always end up fighting aggressively which scares me so I've just kept them separate living in their own big cages...

    Anyone else experienced this?

    So since Honey passed, Willow has been side By side neighbours with Lois and Laine. Initially this helped Willow realise she wasn't alone, and picked her appetitive straight back up. After about 2 days of being next to them, Willow started chewing at the bars and chewing the coroplast base on...

    How to create a bigger guinea pig cage?

    I have recently gotten two guinea pigs that keep fighting and I have heard that getting a bigger cage will help them get along. I was wondering if anyone knows how to fuse two cages together to create one big cage? I want them to be inside and can't find any bigger cages than the one I have...

    Teaching Piggies To Use A Ramp?

    I have a 2 story hutch for my 2 pigs but only one will use the ramp? Both will go up it but only one down again. We have already adapted it to a more tunnel shape to try and help, temped her with food and her sister being at the bottom. We have literally tried everything but she is still...

    Since roughly around yesterday 10am, I have been bonding my Harvey (aprox a year) with a new baby pig (aprox 1 month) Milton, I didn’t read up enough and thought washing Harvey’s blankets and wiping down a bit would be enough to put Milton in his cage, stupid now that I know. They were NOT...

    Cage Size Advice

    Hi all, My boyfriend and I are DIYing a new cage for our babies. Originally it was going to be super long so our two boys had loads of run space, but as many of you will know I posted about having to separate our boys. They're now booked in to be neutered in two weeks' time and the new aim is...

    "are We Moving Again?"

    Hi, recently I've been taking my piggies upstairs in their fold-out run so that we can spend some time together, and also so that they don't get agitated by the fireworks. Obviously, upstairs is warmer then out in the conservatory, and a lot more sheltered. I'm getting a bit worried about the...
