    Guinea Pig In Season Advice

    Hi We have had our two sister piggies for just over a year – they are now about 15 months old. They have always got on well. About 3 months ago we got a new cage with two levels. It has a ramp which neither of them will go up but one of them (Peanut) will go down. In the mornings we feed both...

    Opinions On Spaying As A Preventative Measure

    I'm looking at having Maple spayed but I'd like some opinions first. I'm thinking about this because when Maple comes into season, Beans becomes very aggressive with her and bullies her to the point where she doesn't eat or move, Beans corners and will attack her (biting and lunging) and I...

    Mounting

    Hi everyone, I just wondered whether anyone could offer me a bit of advice about my piggies? I have had my two girls for nearly three years and there has always been mounting going on but recently it's become constant. It used to be in a cyclical nature so I don't know whether or not it was...

    Season Time!

    BB and Rey joined forces last night, even Chewie got in on the act a little bit! Bit of a shame the tunnel got in the way!

    Neutered Boar Chasing Sow.

    So! I recently got Banksy (the boar) and Ivy (sow) from a rescue. They've been cage mates for a year, and up until recently have got on like a house on fire, which is wonderful. Last night, Banksy would -not- give Ivy peace! He chased her around the enclosure endlessly, until Ivy hid away in a...

    Suprelorin Implant For Toast

    Yet another thing to add to Toast's problems... I'm just looking for a bit of advice, or someone who can point me in the right direction. I've posted before about how I've had to separate the pigs temporarily because when Toast comes into season she's getting more and more aggressive each...

    Had To Separate The Pigs... Again!

    I feel so bad but I've had to separate Beans and Toast again. The past few months, every time Toast comes into season she's getting more and more aggressive. I've had to separate in the past by putting grids down the middle of the cage so they could still see each other, but this time Toast...

    Dominance/female In Season, How Long?

    Hi there, I am new to the forum, I used to have 6 female guineas but that was a while ago. I currently have 2 new female Guineas, Pixie and Nixie, who are about 12 weeks old. I've had them 2 weeks on Sunday and they are settling in much quicker than expected! I am a bit worried with Nixie as...

    Aggression Whilst In Season

    (Not sure if this post belongs here or in behaviour section?) I'm getting quite worried about Toast's behaviour and how it's affecting Beans. The past 4 times of Toast coming into season it's been getting progressively worse. She gets extremely aggressive with Beans sometimes and won't leave...
