To those of you have male guineas who have not been neutered how visible are there testicles? Odd question I know but as I have never had guines before I want to be sure all is in order!

Like humans they come in all different sizes! If they are full grown (adult) then you call usually tell. I have 2 rescues in at the mo that are about 2 years old and they are big boys! You dont have to look at their bits and piece's to tell they are male!

Thats good then cause i think they are two very big boys! ;D
Othelleo's seems bigger than Hamlets and I thought they were getting bigger but I think it just depends how hes walking round/lying down!

I just wasnt sure as I have seen some pics of male piggies and you can hardly see them at all.
I think all is well but I will keep an eye out!

Thank you

I'm glad I've seen this. My Leroy has massive ones and I was wondering if it was normal!
When he stretches out they are all on display but he doesn't seem to care :D :D :D

Malcolm has long hair around his bottom but even so, you can still see them when he stretches out.

Might be an silly/odd question, but what do neutered pigs look like?

The both have the bumps and they look very similar just one set is much bigger than the other!

I have to admit, i do actually have a photo of leroys pompoms on my mobile. i just had to take it one day as i thought there was something abnormal about him.

People who have seen it say I'm a bit wierd...

I'd put it on this forum but I might get told off! :D

This thread has really tickled me but this had me howling - poor Billie the Ron Jeremy of piggie world :D :D

It is said that the size of the "pompoms" is the measure of the man! ;)

SarahP - do you have any other pics of your piggies posted? From your small pic they look a bit like my two!
