Hi!Hi I'm thinking of changing from miniature rabbits to piggies and have lots of questions to compare the 2 breeds. Is there someone out there I can message?
Hi! I’m not that experienced as I have only owned my boars for 3 years now, and I’ve never owned any rabbits. My sister however, has a rabbit! There are plenty of experienced owners on the forum that can give you advice. Goodluck and thank you for doing your research beforehand!Hi I'm thinking of changing from miniature rabbits to piggies and have lots of questions to compare the 2 breeds.

It's not necessary to neuter guinea pigs the way it is for rabbits... it doesn't change their behavior and is major surgery for a smaller animal. Reasons to neuter are a male/female pair (in that case normally the male is neutered, as it's an easier surgery, and the female left intact.) Females can be spayed but it's a large operation for a small animal and usually only done for medical/health reasons.I have indoor cages near windows but not in direct sunlight. When I get rabbits neutered the females tend to put weight on but the males don't is this the same for piggies ? How much does it cost for this?
I also found rabbit males are better behaved is this true with piggies ?
Rabbits prefer the cold side dispite like sitting on sofa for cuddles. My understanding is piggies prefer warmer temperatures?
My rabbits are potty trained and return to their cage when need a poop or wee. Do piggies do this ?
Re the vit c I've seen on you tube people syringe feed every day but if they eat their fresh veggies is their a need to do this ? How do piggies in the wild cope ?
I also read piggies don't need vaccines but do need worming ? Which I found strange for herbivores? Is this correct ?
As my rabbits have play time in the lounge I have to rabbit proof everything as they are nibblers especially cables! Are piggies nibblers ?
