    Teeth Chattering

    Hi all! I just recently adopted a new guinea pig from a guinea pig rescue -- they observed him to be happier when alone in a cage as opposed to with a companion so they asked that I adopt him out on his own, though I'm home all the time with virtual schooling and work from home, so he's going to...

    Teeth chattering

    Hi everyone, I have had my 2 female 10 month old guinea pigs for a week now, they’ve settled in well and have been getting on great but today I noticed they’ve been chattering their teeth quite a bit at eachother, which is sometimes followed by them chasing one another and just seeming pretty...

    Bonding boys teeth chatter

    I got my first piggie Milo about 2 months ago and my other piggie Marvin about 1 month ago. They are both only a few months old still. They started bonding very well and seemed to love each other companies up until 2 days ago. My roommate has another boy piggie and we wanted to see if him and...

    Aggressive behaviour

    I’ve got two boars, one about age 1 and the other about 4 months. The younger one keeps initiating teeth chattering and rumbles at the other with his fur on end, which causes the other to chatter back a bit. The older doesn’t get too bothered by it and just ignores him mostly but it’s not nice...

    Maybe a case of bond fallout?

    Hello everyone. I am the proud (and very new) owner of 3 guinea pigs: 1 adult castrated boar, called Pufu, and 2 females (one 3 months old, called Cupcake, and one adult, called Muffin). Muffin is a Peruvian guinea pig, Pufu is a short hair and Cupcake is a Silkie, if this is of importance. The...

    What does it mean when a guinea pig grinds their teeth

    Ive heard that it is meant to mean a bad sign but my guinea pig Mister Lips does it alot of the time when he is lying in his cage when hes sitting on my lap or bed. Does your guinea pig do it?

    Two angry male guinea pigs

    Hi all, Two weeks ago I got two male 7 month old guinea pigs, Louis and Charles. They are brothers and I’ve housed them in the same Midwest cage. Everything was fine and dandy until just tonight I let them out of their cage to play on the living room floor. They were zooming around, eating...

    Mom guinea pig fights with her two three month old daughters

    Hello! A while back, I've made a thread on my mom guinea pig Akira, who bit her son when he was one week old. I was told that it was normal, that it was just her way of "spanking" him and how she's the superior of the group. It's been a few months now since then, and I have Akira with her two...

    My Sow's Grooming Needs are Hurting our Relationship

    We've owned our coronet/american cross sow since she was just a pup, she is now almost three. She gets plenty of socialization and for the first part of her life, happy purrs during lap time, and wheeks when she heard us come home were a regular thing. But her long hair requires a lot more...

    My usually calm guinea pig is biting, headbutting and teeth chattering at me? Help

    7 days ago I got my first pair of guinea pigs! They're two boys and are about 7 weeks old now, though I'm fairly sure that one is older than the other since he's a little fatter and longer. Everything was fine for the first 5 days. We started with cuddling for 5 minutes and gradually got...

    Crunched Up In A Corner All Day!

    My older guinea pig, Jake, is always teeth chattering around Winnie, the younger one, and always chases him around. Now, Winnie stays in a corner all day and I don't think he's eating. He even poops and pees there and just stays there. I think it has something to do with Jake chasing him around...

    Good Teeth Chattering?

    Okay, I have a really weird question, but I didn`t find anything on the matter, so here goes Is it possible for teeth chattering to be not-bad? I ask that because I`ve noticed weird behaviours on my two piggies, Porca and Cookie. So the story goes like this: I've been training them to come when...

    Mounting And Humping

    We were eating dinner when I heard the boys busy running around. I came to investigate (it was quite boisterous) and found Toffee chasing Fudge around, teeth chattering on and off. He was also mounting and humping him. It’s been going on for at least 10mins now. Should I just leave them to it...

    My Dominant Sow Is Bullying The Rest

    I have three sows, two are from the same litter and one which I have just recently adopted. They have a big cage with ample running space. When the new sow was adopted I followed the instructions of bonding in order for the process to go smoothly. After the hierarchy was established I believe...

    Two Boars Had A Fight

    I have two male guinea pigs who were getting on fine until about four weeks ago when they started loudly teeth chattering at each other. It then progressed into one of them occasionally lunging at the other, before they both ran off. Usually when they're like this it's when they're having floor...
