Hi,

:hug:I hope I'm not posting too many questions, I just love my baby squeakers a lot already and want them to be happy!

When I had guinea girls before they lived outside and went in an outside run, so I didn't see as much of their daily behaviour.

My two babies, particularly the last 2 days, have been squabbling quite a lot. It's not fighting, there's no physical harm or real aggression just bickering and some occasional rumblestrutting from Cinnamon!

Is this normal for baby sisters? I've read the posts on dominance and guess it could be them trying to find their place with each other, but just checking it's normal!

Thanks :)

Dominance behaviours are normal - you will see it while they establish themselves, but also when in season. It can be more intense during a strong season.
As long as you aren’t seeing any really concerning behaviour such as fur being pulled out (the equivalent of a full on boar fight), then it is likely just dominance. Do keep the guides to hand so you can spot if things do become more concerning

and don’t worry about posting questions! We would rather you ask for advice!

Thank you 😊

When do they start getting seasons? Is 8 weeks too young or about right?

So far nothing concerning no touchwood, I will make sure to keep an eye though just in case 😊

They can have seasons from 4 weeks of age so not too young.
