Hi I'm picking up my 2 new babies tomorrow (the last piggies in my life was 5 yrs ago ) I'm Little out of practice, that was one of the main reasons i joined on here to get great advice (cant beat experience) When i get them home I'm going to pop them in the bedroom ( they are going to live in the living room) to settle in and get them use to the new smells of cage, surroundings etc, do you think its a good idea? And with them being babies when can they have fresh veg? Sorry for so many questions and or seem obvious just want to make sure. :)

They can have veg right away :) If it was me I would put them straight into the front room so they can get used to front room sounds etc.

You must be sooooo excited :D

you must be so excited! how come you didn't have any for 5 years?

i got my boys in march after a 6 year or so gap. i couldn't have any all the time that i was at uni and in rented accommodation etc. so i got my two boys in march and then a new addition last weekend. you will soon get back into the swing of things.

i always keep them in the bedroom for the first night so i can sleep next to them. it was always a big thing when i was little, because it was so new and exciting to have picked them up and to watch them settle in.

they can eat vegetables (as long as they don't have too much) so i'm sure you'll get to know their favourites v quickly :)

have fun!

I Picked up my babies last night first time I have ever had any! I am addicted already keep looking at them and can't wait to hear them make a noise and want a cuddle. My children (5 and 2) have called them Toffee and Fifi! I read in one book that they are like rabbits and poo in one place but I'm looking in my cage and it's all over the place, how often do I have to clean them out? They are only 6 weeks old can they have vegtables yet? Or should I just carry on with the pellets. Cheers.

Well most of us do a spot clean daily, poos, food, soiled hay etc and a complete clean on any thing from say every 4 days to weekly, depending on how many you have, how big the cage is and also what you are using for bedding :)
