    Introducing New Guinea To 1 1/2 year Old

    I recently got a 1 1/2 year old skinny pig from a friend who couldn't keep her anymore. She has been alone her entire life and is very skittish and reclusive. I was thinking of getting her a friend guinea but I don't know if that's a good idea since she has always been alone and might not do...

    Laminate Cage?

    Yes it's me again with another question! :roll: So today a friend was telling me about a new cage she was going to be making for her guinea pigs out of laminate flooring. She had spare flooring left over so she is using that as the sides for her cage and for the floor she is using vinyl with...

    Big Boy?

    Hey everyone! My new-ish boar, Gus, is four months old. I was just wondering if he is pretty big for his size. I saw a sow from my city at the state fair that was a dalmation too. She was probably from the same local breeder. (FYI, I am not a fan of breeders. I am hopefully going to adopt...

    How To Introduce Veggies

    Hi guys! I wasn't sure where to post this, but I just got my piggies about 5 days ago & I'm worried about their eating habits. I got them from a shelter, so I didn't get much information on what foods they had been eating. I know piggies need 80% hay, some veggies, and maybe some pellets. I just...

    Piggie Sleep Schedule?

    When do your piggies sleep? I thought they were nocturnal, but Finnian seems to like sleeping off and on from midnight to 5 A.M. He doesn't normally sleep during the day. Could that be because he's in my room with me? I'mnot really worried, he's still adjusting to the new environment. I'm just...

    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.

    Question.

    Hello we have 3 guinea pigs. All female. 2 are 3 or 4 years old and one is 6 months. Because our other baby Gp died (see rainbow bridge pets) we are thinking when the two older ones die of old age our baby will be on its own for 3 years. So we think we will get it a baby friend now so they can...

    Can I Leave My Guinea Pig Alone For Two Days?

    I am going to be gone for less than 48 hours, so I was wondering if I need to hire someone to watch my piggy. Ideally I would like to give my piggy two days worth of pellets, lots of hay, and a full bottle of water. Instead of having someone come over and feed her once. I would like to know if I...
