    Guinea Pigs Won’t Leave Cage

    Hi! So, I have had my guinea pigs for 3 years now. For the first year and a half of having them I had carpet in my bedroom. The Guineas absolutely loved floor time and would squeak to be let out for floor time. Since I have changed to laminate flooring (due to the amount of floor time the pigs...

    Storage Recommendations

    Hi all, I couldn’t find a similar thread so I made my own, not sure it’s in the right chat but please move it if it’s not. I’m looking for your recommendations on storage.

    Product Recommendations

    I noticed there aren't a whole load of guinea pig product recommendation threads out there so I thought I'd take the opportunity to make one. If anyone has any DIYs or products they've tried and liked, post them here! :)

Our main two animal intakes are rabbits and guiena pigs , although we have around 25 rabbits and only 4 piggies currently. But obviously as most people know, rescues do their upmost to...

    Those of you that have a hay box...

    Hey guys, those of you that have a dedicated hay box, rather than a hay rack or just using hay as bedding, what do you use below the hay? I would love to have a dedicated hay section/box for the piggies especially Willow as she is always jumping in the hay rack to run through it... I used to...

    I am thinking about switching to fleece bedding because it seems to fit my standards. I need fleece that I can just wash every day and will not leak through and have a washable absorbent layer.

    Correx And Puppy Pads

    i moved my boys to a c&c today, but they’ve already started chewing on the correx :mal: I also set up a ‘kitchen’ area in which I initially put shavings on top of puppy pads, but changed my mind envisioning the mess - when they run they kick up shavings. Now toffee keeps chewing on the puppy...

    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. I was just wondering if any of you piggy owners had tips/ tricks to keeping your guinea pig warm and how to make sure they get some sort of exercise when it’s too cold for them to go out. Thanks!

    If You Could Rename Them....

    We all know Guinea Pigs have the strangest name: they're not pigs and they're not from New Guinea! I was thinking, if we could rename them, what would we call them? Based on our experiences with these wonderful little fluffies. Personally, I'd go with Spud Bunnies, because of their potato...

    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. However, after weighing each of them my three boars each need to loose half a pound for them to be at a healthy weight. I will hold my hands up to the fact that I do overfeed my...
