We don't have an introduction thread, so we figured we would start one.

In Order (They're posted in pairs, or how many we adopted at the time):

Wow you have so many gorgeous guinea-pigs. I really like Zoe's fur. I have never seen a guinea-pig like that where I live.

I would love to see photos of how you have them housed. I have 14 right now and am trying to figure out the best way to house them to make everything as easy as possible but still be best for the piggies. Great photos!

Wow that's a lot of big cages! All your piggies are adorable!!

We actually just bought a new house, it has a 4 car garage on site, that is empty for now. So we put all the cages in their, it is completely 100% climate controlled (AC and heat)

In total there is 6 cages, but we have the 3x4's stacked in 2's. So really there is only 4 cages (space wise)

Most of the guinea pigs we have had surrendered to us, were meant to be adopted out to good homes, but we fell in-love with them, and could not separate with them. :)

We have 20 Full length fleece runs, over 3 meters long each. They get fed fresh veggies 3 times daily, We spend over 100$ a week on vegetables alone, and have a fridge dedicated to the veggies. CAVY MADNESS!! LOL

Wow! What a lot of gorgeous guineas! I love the baby ones (Zoey and Chloe) - so cute! I can't imagine how long it takes you to clean and care for all of them - kudos to you! :)

I'm going to be honest, To clean all 7 cages, it takes me an hour to change the fleece :)

I clean the cages every other day, with spot cleaning 3 times a day (Broom and dustpan)

It's alot of work, but in the end it is definitely worth it.

We feed all of our guinea's Martin Mills, Timothy based pellets, The ones that have been on the market for a while are actually alfalfa based, We buy our pellets in 40 Pound bags, 3-4 at a time. So roughly 200 Pounds of pellets lying around is alot of food!!

Your guinea pigs are so lucky to have you. I love your beautiful family. I can't decide who is the cutest. I completely understand how they just steal your heart. The last guinea pig I decided to foster is staying with me. I just decided this week that she is not going anywhere. lol

Amazing. I just went to your website, and looked at all your cages. It's fabulous! You should post pictures in the galleries - I'm sure lots of members could benefit from your ideas. (Especially your stacked cages.)

One thing though, why do you show wheels and yogurt treats in the toys and exercise page? This website clearly states that those things are bad for pigs.

GPigsRSweet, I looked at his site too and if you scroll down on the toys page he has it in writing that the wheels are not good, and he has a link for diet.

Oh, I see, thanks. I must not have scrolled all the way down. I just hope no one does the same thing I did and get the wrong idea!

Yes that is stuff that is NOT good for the guineas.

I can't accept any credit for the website, as my Girlfriend did the whole thing :)

I'm just the cage cleaner, picture taker, and nail clipper! LOL
