They need to be eating plenty of hay. I know you are weighing them as per your previous threads so continue to do that and speak to a vet if you are concerned

Hi!

If you have already started a health/illness thread and this is conntected to that, please do not spread your questions over several threads. Not everybody of us is able to see everything and be able to connect the dots, so you won't get more and more haphazard, repeated and general advice that will be less and less efficient as times goes on.

The more you can keep it together in just one thread, the more those who come on later can look up what has been happening and and been recommended before. Please respect that we are all doing this for free in our free time. The more time we have to spend looking up things and merging threads, the less time we have left for supporting you as you would wish to.

Please weigh your guinea pigs once daily at the same time if you have concerns, make sure that they have got plenty of access to fresh water (check whether the bottle is working properly) and to unlimited fresh hay, which is refilled ideally at least twice a day.
If all piggies are losing weight at the same time, then the problem is usually environmental and not illness related.
DO read our information links so you understand better why we recommend something and how it works.
Here is our weight monitoring link. Weighing is one of the most important tools we have in monitoring our piggies' health all live long. Weight - Monitoring and Management
