    Tips To Keeping Guineas Warm Through Winter

    Hi, I have recently moved my Guinea Pig into the conservatory due to the cold weather during winter.

    My Three Guinea-pigs Need To Go On A Diet...

    So from what I've previously read in guinea-pig care books, a medium-sized guinea-pig should weigh between 1 - 2 lbs.
