    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...

    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...
