i have a book about guinea pigs that says that females can get hormonal and moody. is this correct?

ive always had boys and ive never had a girl before.

has anyone who own both sexes or have in the past please tell me if you have seen a temperment difference

Females get hormonal and moody? How dare you? LOL.
Seriously, yes they can. Sows come into season about once a fortnight and at that time they can be narky with each other. Only usually minor squabbles and it soon passes. I have both boars and sows, and love them both. x

I have had all sows... and yes, they get PMS! LOL! Some are worse than others with it... my sow Frenzy was a whole different pig for about four days out of the month!

I have three girls and a neutered boy.

Of my girls, only Pippa would get tempremental, although she is coming up to two years old now and has calmed down alot and it a very happy girl these days :)

Whiskey and Noodles have never been aggressive with each other, just a bit stroppy, you can tell when Noodles is in season as she likes her own space and Whiskey after 4 years has finally learnt to respect that lol.
