    Are They Bored? + Shed And Hay Advice

    Will My Piggies Die?! -3 Degrees

    I have two 1 and 1/2 year old male guinea pigs, my garage is currently being redone so we can’t bring them in and my parents don’t want them in the house! It is -3 degrees outside and the snow is up to my knees, the hutch is on top of a run so I’m not worried about the snow hitting them but I’m...

    How Cold Is Too Cold?

    Hi all, I have two lovely female piggies who I acquired earlier this year. They live outdoors, in a two level hutch that has mesh over 3/4 of the front, and then a 'bedroom' area with wooden walls all the way around so it's a bit more enclosed. I've been bringing them indoors when the...

    Peeing And Staying Outside During Winter

    Hello, my Piggy is 2months old (and he's single for now, hopefully we'll get him a companion soon). Since we live in a building, unfortunately we can't take him outside but we give him some floor time on balcony where he runs around and hides. His cage is also on the balcony and there weren't...

    Washing Fleece Liners

    So I know that this question has been asked a lot before but still need to ask it again. On what temperature can I wash the fleece? I live in The Netherlands so we use Celsius temperature. Hope that someone can help me out!

    Anyone Else Feel Guilty ?

    Does anyone else on here feel guilty when the pigs can't go outside? I don't know why I feel so guilty ! As they have down time on the carpet in the spare room . Also does anyone know the lowest temperature they can go outside in? For example some places I've read 10 degrees and some places it's...

    How Can I Keep Guinea Pigs Cool In Summer While I'm Gone?

    So, I live in Alberta, Canada and the weather can be pretty harsh in both summer and winter. In winter it can get down to -30 C (-22 F) and in summer it can get up to 30 C (86 F), though the temperature is usually around -12 C (10 F) in winter and about 20 C (68 F) in summer on average. I am not...

    Outdoor Thermometer

    With nicer weather, hopefully, on the way, I am thinking about my shed and the sun. I have already sourced shade cloth to fix over the windows to block direct sunlight (my shed is in sun for a few hours in the daytime) but I am looking for an accurate and reliable digital thermometer which I can...

    When To Use A Snuggle Safe Heat Pad

    hi, I was wondering at what temperature at night people start to use their heat pads? I have read through lots of threads but can't see a temperature that people start to use it by? My piggies are in an outside hutch in a sheltered part of the garden and will be throughout winter. They have...
