Misty(my guinea)who had the 'stiff leg problem' also sits with her legs splayed out to the side.I was wondering if this was a problem.

One of my primary schools guinea pigs did the same thing but worse.They stayed at my house a lot in the holidays as i had sat them when it was half term and no one was at school.Will that information help?

She keeps her legs splayed for a while then tucks them under herself.Is it a huge problem or is it just a habbit of some sort?

Misty is the dominant one but she does it even when she is by herself.

i've also had pigs that do this jinx does to some degree but its never seemed a problem maybe they are more comfortable that way or they were born with clicky hips like babies get,

My Misty lies with his legs out to the side like the way you said but he's fine so I don't think it's much to worry about. I think they are more comfortable that way like michellemuffin said :D
