    Aggressive guinea pig with new pigs

    Hello all! Last year I adopted 3 guinea pigs that I absolutely loved, so I decided to get two more. I isolated the New Guinea pigs in a cage right next to the other 3 for about two weeks then introduced them to my other 3 pigs. Unfortunately it didn’t go well. Lillie, my most dominate old pig...

    New Scared Guinea Pig! Need tips please!

    Hi there! I brought home a 3 month old male guinea pig named Hershey two days ago. Unfortunately I did not do enough research on cages and got him the wrong kind but a good c&c cage is shipping now so hopefully I’ll get it by next week. I know they are prey creatures and will hide a lot because...

    I'm a new piggy owner and need help! Is this something to be worried about?

    S'mores used to be my niece's but she didn't care for her properly so she was given to me. When I got her she had growths on her front legs but I took her to a vet and she just trimmed them and said they weren't an issue. One of the growths was ripped off when Smores jumped off my lap this...

    Is this normal for newly bonding piggies?

    I have a 2 year old girl named Luna and yesterday I adopted another girl to replace Luna's cage mate that sadly passed last month. And some of Luna's behavior towards the new piggie has left me confused and slightly worried because I had never seen it before. Their first initial introduction...

    Caring for Guinea Pigs while disabled?

    For reference, I suffer from chronic pain and fatigue and can’t walk unless I use a mobility aid and can’t even get out of bed some days. I’m worried about my 2 pigs because I haven’t been able to spend time with them as often as I wished. While my mother does help care for them while I’m...

    Which Room Should I Put My Guinea Pigs In?

    Hello! SeaSalt here! I am getting ready to adopt guinea pigs, but I have a slight issue.... Where should I keep them? My bedroom is large enough, but I worry about them being noisy at night. My mum suggested the laundry room, but I worry it will be too noisy and scary for them in there. I've...

    New Guinea Owner!

    I recently bought 2 male guinea pigs at 20 weeks old and I was advised to hold them for at least 30 minutes a day so they can get used to human contact. One of them if very active and makes squeaking noise and will take food from my hand whilst the other just scuttles up to my neck and will lay...

    Can Guinea Pigs Travel With Me Between Two Houses Often?

    so I used to own a guinea pig years ago and he was the sweetest little piggy, I loved him so much, but alas he lived at my moms house and I was not with him enough to take care of him and the burden was left on my mother. This lead to her giving away my piggy and I do miss him, but I have been...

    2 Or 3 Sows?

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. I haven't had guinea pigs for several years and have previously had at different times pairs of sows. However as I'm aware guinea pigs like to live in larger groups would it be better for me to get three rather than two this time? I have already ordered a 2x4 c&c cage...
