    Pairing adult boar with baby boar

    We just adopted a 2 year old Guinea pig boar 2 days ago for my son. I personally am committed to his ultimate care. I’ve had Guinea pigs in the past many years ago so I considered myself an experienced owner, however, I see that much has changed since the days of yesteryear and that I in fact...

    Boris and Stanley

    Hey, My boys Boris and Stanley are approximately 6 years old. They've had two homes before me. I've had them for over a year. Boris used to be dominant but recently Stanley has started to act more dominantly. A couple of days ago Stanley was chasing Boris around for probably a few hours in the...

    Two males won’t pick an alpha

    I have just introduced a young male to an older (not by much) male who is considerably bigger. I purposely picked a submissive male baby so that the natural order would be: introduce them, older one takes dominance role as the alpha boar, then they chill and can be in the same cage. It’s been...

    Bonding seperation?

    So a few days ago I upgraded the cage of my 3 year old pig and it is now big enough to host 2-3 pigs. I have 3 pigs and Finnian has been left by himself because he was not able to establish dominance and get along with the other two. Today, I tried again for the first time in over a year to get...

    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...

    Until recently i had 2 male guinea pigs who had never got on (one was adopted after another passed away) i have tried floor time many times in a very large room and it’s always ended in a fight and sometimes injuries. One of the 2 (mixed colour Peruvian in the picture) was seeming very lonely so...

    Weight Loss

    Mr Muffin was neutered last week and when I weighed him yesterday he has lost about 22g. I weighed him again today and he has lost about 25g. There hasn’t been anything wrong with him since the surgery. I think it might be because of the separation from Blueberry. They’ve been separated for a...

    My usually calm guinea pig is biting, headbutting and teeth chattering at me? Help

    7 days ago I got my first pair of guinea pigs! They're two boys and are about 7 weeks old now, though I'm fairly sure that one is older than the other since he's a little fatter and longer. Everything was fine for the first 5 days. We started with cuddling for 5 minutes and gradually got...

    Should I Separate My Boars?

    I'm new to owning piggies, I just got my first one on 11-26-17 from a pet page on Facebook and did all the research I could and knew he needed a friend. So on 11-29-17 I adopted another male from the shelter. I have no idea how old either of them are, but the first one was owned by the previous...

    Bad Reintroductions And When To Stop Trying

    My name is Annelle - an enthusiastic new Guinea Pig parent. I have two little boys (less than 6 months old,) named Banjo and Snoopy. I intended to stop there until I was at a Petco and felt horrible for a bigger male who was being kept alone in the small cage. My heart when out to him and I...

These guys have got on pretty well without any arguing or squabbles, but suddenly, out of nowhere, the half-brother has randomly turned on one of...
