    New piggy is still scared of every sound, how should i calm her down?

    I recently got a new guinea pig, she is very sweet and is doing really well, however, she is scared of the slightest noise. If I even slightly move my foot on the carpet she looks alert or runs back into her hidey. She is completely used to the sound of my voice and she feels safe enough to walk...

    Strange Piggy Noises!

    hi! I have two piggies, a 2 year old female and a 3 year old male. Lately, only occasionally, I have been hearing a new noise I have never heard them make before! I think it's the female making the noise, the only way I can describe it is like a chicken coo. It's a little like rumbling but...
