    Bonding to make a trio

    Hi, I have just adopted a pair of sows and am hoping that I can introduce a younger sow to form a trio. Obviously I have to wait a couple of weeks or more for them to settle in and trust us, but would it work trying to do this? The pair I have are 1 years old. (Photo from previous owner)

    Looking for new pigs

    Does anyone have recommendations for apps to find Guinea pigs in need of rehousing? For all my previous pigs I have used apps like gumtree etc to collect pigs that people didn’t want or couldn’t keep anymore. I am looking for 3 or 2 bonded sows as I have recently lost both my boars. Thank you!

    Sick piggie being bullied

    Hi! My name is Jenna, and I have three female piggies. I moved houses a couple of weeks ago which has put a little stress on the pigs. A few days ago, I noticed that one of them, Mini, wasn’t eating. Today we took her to the vet and found out she has gi stasis. She’s lost a lot of energy. Keep...

    My beautiful girls are three today! Can’t believe how quickly the time has flown past! I remember I got them a day after my eldest daughter’s birthday. He took some convincing (to get them) but the husband warmed to them as well. Happy birthday girls. You’ll get a thin slice of apple later...

    Sow mounting & v discharge?

    One of my guineas squeals when the other one gets close

    Hi! I am a new guinea pig owner (2 days now)! I got 2 baby sows, Peach and Coco, from a breeder, but they seemed to be from different moms and we think one of them (Coco) was a bit smaller, as she was still with her mom when the breeder gave her to us. We honestly forgot to ask how old Coco was...

    Guinea pigs fighting after floor time

    Hi! Wondering if anyone can explain this, guinea pigs (ladies) were happy before and during floor time, and I put them all back in the cage at the same time. Immediately one starts bullying the other. No biting but such aggressive mounting that the mounter fell off. I'm seperating them for the...

    Is this normal? Strong season for sows

    We’re on day FOUR of what seems to be the strongest season possible for Peppa. Can I get some opinions on the video below? Peppa lifted Cashew’s chin and nibbled - never seen this before. Usually just chin raises. Peppa has been rumble strutting for four days straight now. She’ll rumble and...

    Hi! I’ve read all of the forums on here about bonds in trouble, medical separations, bonding behavior, etc. but I’ve got one big question. Does anyone have an example of what the fighting ball of fluff would look like? My girls, when they were together prior to one of them having surgery, have...

    Is this a sign of dominance?

    Evening everyone, I’ve just had my 2 female guinea pigs out for a run around and noticed that one of them seemed to purposely try and wee on the other. She lifted her legs up and everytime the other one tried to run away she’d run back and do it again. Is this normal. I’ve never seen them do it...

    I am currently bonding my 2 6 month old sows to my new 7 week old skinny pig. My one girl Ruby (grey Peruvian) seems to be getting on fine with her but my other girl Meg (texel) keeps lunging, chasing and nipping at her. They’ve been together for about an hour now and she’s still doing it. I...
