If you haven't gotten them yet, please adopt! Don't buy from a pet store.

What do the piggies look like? Are they male or female? Can't wait to see pictures. What kind of cage is your cousin giving you? Are these babies from an accidental litter or does your cousin breed them? Just curious. Not tryin to be nosey.

She ment to have this litter,but she doesn't breed them.How did she mean to have the litter if she isn't breeding them? Did she put a boar and sow together, so the sow would get pregnant? If so, she's breeding.

Thats still breeding i have something to say:

When i cam ehere i didnt of all th epigs out there who need a loving home.
The ones from the shelters.
There are enough pigs in the world already.
Practically half of them have no homes.
By she having that litter she made it worse, but not by much.
Please dont take them, and adopt.

Sounded fishy to me, thats the reason I asked. Why did she breed one litter in the first place? Why do you think she isn't going to breed more?

Thats not a good reason to breed. There is NO good reason to breed. She could have just adopted you some from the shelter and saved a life at the same time.

But her Pig would have a litter (most-likey) over 2!
What is she going to do with the left-over pups?

If you and your cousin wanted guinea pigs, you should have done some research and adopted them from a shelter instead of having them bred for you. Doing it this way, you're contributing to the overpopulation of animals that are out there. If you weren't aware, this forum is very anti-breeding. There is really no reason for it. It might take a bit more time, and it's not always convenient, but it's better to save an animal from a shelter or rescue than to breed them just so you can get birthday gifts exactly when you want them and possibly condemn shelter animals to death because they were not adopted.

If we sound "weird" to you its because this is an ANTI-breeding forum.
