Maybe she had two pregnant pigs and couldn't care for the babies? Maybe the bin is just for photo taking? (it looks clean to me)

Nikkipig, it does look clean, but newspaper isn't good for guinea pigs. :(

True... at least it's better than wire floors or no bedding at all.

Newspaper is bad?! But that's what I use for my piggies to poop and pee in :(

Sorry pandaloki! But newspaper isn't that good for pigs (unless your thinking of Yesterday's News). Nikkipig: You're right, it is better.

Pandaloki, using newspaper for bedding means that your pigs' feet and bellies and bums are on a wet surface. At the best, they can get bumble foot or urine scald, at the worst, urinary tract infections.

You need something that will pull the urine down to a lower layer and stay relatively dry on top. I realize you don't have great selection of bedding where you are, but you need to find something better than newspaper.

I just flagged the site!

Looks like the same babies again but months later? I have never flagged before. Does it ask you why you're flagging?

flagged. :)

Yeah, it's the same person posting repeatedly. She's had her ad up since before Christmas when I was looking for a female cage mate for Pepper.

Also, flagging you just have to click a button for why you are flagging, you'd click prohibited. They don't ask for further information. It takes a few people to get a post removed.

Poor baby pigs :( That is not acceptable at all!
