My boyfriend and I got 2 guinea pigs a few weeks ago. Recently, they have been sleeping a lot. We have to wake them up for them to come out, eat, and play. I don’t think they are sick either because they are hyper, popcorning, running, etc when we wake them up. Tupac is 1 and Biggie is a little younger.

Ours are most active at dawn and dusk, and would happily sleep and eat pretty much all day in-between. If they're still fairly new to you they may also be hiding away to slow them to relax, as they're still getting to know you. Also, depending where you are, if it's been hot there (it has here), they may have been relaxing more to help deal with the heat.
