    Baby Guinea Pig (Sows) Average Weights

    Hello :) I have recently bought two baby guinea pig sows, Popcorn and Minstrel! I want to weigh them weekly for the next six weeks just to make sure they're both putting weight on - I think Popcorn is eating much more than Minstrel, so I want to make sure they're both healthy and growing as...

    Average weight for a 4 month old boar

    I recently adopted a 4 month old boar and I weighed him yesterday and he was 822g but I don’t know what the average is at his age and whether or not he’s at a healthy weight. I’ve looked online but I can only find average weights for adults.

    Worried About Weight Fluctuations

    Weigh Day.

    I told the girls that it was weigh-time and afterwards they'd get some veggies - they ran for cover. As soon as they realised the scale's batteries were flat, they came out wheaking for the promised veg! So no weights this week. Chewie is definitly growing (or just getting fatter?) - their...
