My dad went and picked up the piggies when I was at school and he "forgot" to ask what their breeds were. Then when I asked my dad he told me to check the add online but when I looked for it all the piggies were sold and the add was taken down. I haven't had to take them to the vet yet so I haven't been able to ask for the breed. I would be very grateful if you could tell me what breed.
Here are some photos:

The one with the smooth fur is a silkie. The other one looks like mix between a silkie and abyssinian.

The pig with the longer hair looks like a silkie guinea pig to. Other people may correct me.The other looks like a few mixes. Maybe a Peruvian/Abyssinian, or an american/Peruvian.

But they're brother wouldn't they be the same breed? Sorry, I guess I should have mentioned that before.

There aren't different breeds of guinea pigs, just different coat types. I had littermate sows that were different -- one an American shorthair and the other an Abyruvian.

@bpatters (http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/member.php?u=13820) is totally right @just8be8free (http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/member.php?u=35658)! It depends on what their parents genes were. My pigs had an accidental litter and my girl Freya had a TSW (Tortoiseshell with White) teddy bear boy and a silver agouti and white brindle American girl! Ikarus and Freya (the parents of the accidental litter) have a TSW teddy bear mom and a chocolate agouti American dad.

Here is Ikarus, the dad (chocolate agouti/gold brindle american):
75152

and Freya, the mom (dilute TSW american):
75153


and their babies Sigyn (american):
75154

and Benedict (TSW teddy bear):
75155

So it is totally possible for siblings to be different coat types :)
