Hi I was wondering if someone could tell me what weight (roughly) should a guinea pig put on each week.
I weigh my girls every Monday and my boys every Tuesday and over the past week some of them have had a big growth spurt.
Daisy is 6 months & has put on 75grms, Willow is 6 months & has put on 50grms, Peppa is 6 weeks & has put on 100grms and Lottie is 5 weeks & has put on 50grms.
Peppa looks huge, all 4 girls are in one cage and they have a pecking order especially with food Willow eats 1st then Daisy then the little two.
Albie has put on 100grms and Alfie 110grms and they both eat at the same time.
I was convinced their scales were wrong so I've weighed some food and it's correct.
I don't feed them anymore than what I did when I 1st got them so I'm stumped at why their weight gain is so high this week.
