    Talking The babies were born!!! I have pictures!

    Early this morning (much earlier than I was awake) my Nelly had her babies. I could have sworn she was big enough to fit three in there but there were only two, beautiful and healthy babies.

    Disclaimer: I did not breed my mommy piggy nor do I condone breading of guinea pigs. It turns out that we adopted a pregnant piggy. One that was supposed to have never met a male.

    So, they are beautiful and happy and I just wanted to show off the little babies. I am not sure yet how I am going to tell them apart right now. One does have a little bit fuzzier white spot on her head.



    The far baby is also just an tiny bit darker shade of red.

    I believe they are both girls (its hard to tell at this age of course) and if they are I think I will keep both. Don't tell my husband.

    I love, love, love orange piggies. Never had one myself though as I've never been able to find any to adopt around here.

    Better watch it, I may have to come snatch them. So adorable.

    Thank you! I am honestly just relieved that everything went smoothly. I had a nightmare the other night that involved rushing the mama to the vet only to find they had moved. I will be able to sleep better now.

    Nelly is such a great mama and since she was alone for the month that we had her I imagine she is glad to have some company, even if they only want to chase her around and nurse. Its a mini piggy train when she walks around, they follow her nose to tail in a little line.

    Wow! What a stunning trio! The pregnancy was a blessing in disguise. I really hope they are both girlicues. Young mom and 2 healthy babies is a good sign they will stay healthy, and you will no doubt love them to bits.

    They are just adorable and just like their mama! I am really glad it all went well - now you can just enjoy them!


    Isn't it funny how much baby guineas look like tiny capybaras?

    Hehe, ditto.

    Too cute!! I too would love an orange/red piggie. But, alas, the only time an orange piggy was in a shelter/rescue near me. It was there for less than 48 hours.
