    Boar help!

    Hello, we are new guinea pig owners. After thinking about getting cavies for years I saw someone in our village had babies that required urgent homes due to them moving. I did a bad thing - I acted on impulse and said we would take them. However, when they dropped them off they gave us three...

    Trio Of Boars?

    I was thinking today, is a trio of boars a common thing? I know a trio of sows is a thing and they get along but would a trio of boars work out? I currently have 2 boars right now and was thinking (of course when they settle in to their C&C cage and get over their dominant stages) of getting...

    Guinea Pig Trio Solution?

    We have a guinea pig trio (all female) in a cage that is roughly 5.5 feet by 1.5 feet. They were all from the same litter in the pet shop. My husband and I had done our research prior to getting the guinea pigs and did not come across the fact that this configuration was dysfunctional. Our...

    Welcoming A Little Rex(?) Into A Sow Trio!

    Hi fellow cavy lovers! I am celebrating the addition to a sweet baby girl, and wanted to share her adorable face with you all <3 I fell victim, and adopted her from a pet store, (for shame, I know,) but I could hardly resist. I haven’t a clue what her mix is, but she seems to have a bit of...

    Boar Trio Working?

    if you read my last post you'll know why I'm doing this. So it was either put my two guinea pigs with the new one or get a New Guinea pig to go with the new one. As originally I really wanted 3 guinea pigs together I ended up trying it just to see how it would go. Pringle and mojo and the new...

    Bad Reintroductions And When To Stop Trying

    My name is Annelle - an enthusiastic new Guinea Pig parent. I have two little boys (less than 6 months old,) named Banjo and Snoopy. I intended to stop there until I was at a Petco and felt horrible for a bigger male who was being kept alone in the small cage. My heart when out to him and I...

    5 Boys? Advice Needed!

    I currently have 3 piggies. Here are Russell and S'mores. Here's Petey. I got Petey and S'mores together when they were teeny tiny babies. They lived in harmony until they both turned roughly 4 months old. That was the same time I introduced baby Russell to them. Things went well for about...

    My Happy Little Trio :)

    Introduced Ronan (4 week old texel) to my other two tonight and it went really well! I have Caspar, a 5 week old teddy and Rupert, a 4 year old part sheltie. Poor Rupert with all these babies! He popcorned when he first saw them both so I think he's happy for the company! I know I might get...

    Floor Time Videos

    These are from floor time this past weekend. The light isn't great but hopefully you can see them scampering around (and jumping the chair legs) well enough! There were three but one has music in the back ground that was blocked :(

    My three girls are somewhere around their first birthday (basically anytime in September!) BB is currently the heaviest (!) at 850g, Chewie is 830 and Rey is 780g. Here's a *few* pictures. I have got a video of them leaping the chair legs, but I haven't got around to uploading it to YouTube!

    Trio To Quad? Advice Appreciated

    Hi, I have three 9 month old (ish) sisters who get along great. Chewie and BB are more affectionate to each other than to Rey, but no one is bullied or left out in any way. The accountant at work also has a pair of older girls (maybe 3 yrs?) and has previously asked if I would take the...

    Tripple Lap Time Success

    Had my partner's sister and her husband over last night and to cheer her up (her job may be on the line now we've been voted out) I got all three pigs out an plonked two of them on her lap. After BB made quite a scarey break for freedom from her husbands lap, I added her to the pile and se was...

    2 Or 3 Sows?

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. I haven't had guinea pigs for several years and have previously had at different times pairs of sows. However as I'm aware guinea pigs like to live in larger groups would it be better for me to get three rather than two this time? I have already ordered a 2x4 c&c cage...

    Picnic Lunch

    I had the day off work today and as Rey still needs 3x eye drops each day, I decided to keep the girls inside. I used their outdoor run to create a barrier keeping them in the dining room and let them run around for about 40 mins including lunch :) I had to use some tunnels and their indoor...

    First Floor Time

    I hope this works! This was their first proper floor time as a trio. They have all had un-sanctioned floor time individually before. OH is worried about them peeing on the carpet. We were creating a human barrier between the safe dining room and the wires-everywhere living room and computer...
