  1. Training With The Piggies

    Thanks to @ClicknCavy I have decided to begin clicker training my piggies, though I have a feeling that Eggs wouldn't respond well to it quite yet because he's just so skittish.

    Anyway, I have begun training with Bacon and he is a wonderful, intelligent piggy. It is so amazing what you discover about your guinea pigs when you begin their training! At first, I wondered if Bacon's love for food would be distracting, a downfall for training, but it ended up being ...
  2. Meddlesome Parents...

    My new pigs are settling in pretty well, but breaking their bad habit of bar-chewing is not going well. They have pretty much figured out that bar-chewing only makes me come over and pet them or pick them up, which they aren't the biggest fans of, but they know something else: My parents are not me. They will hand out cilantro and carrots to whiny, bitey pigs. It's really frustrating, especially since now I have no idea how many vegetables the pigs are eating anymore. I tell my parents to ignore ...
  3. Nail Clipping and Coroplast Biting

    My two new piggies are horrible little coroplast munchers! They've figured out what times of the day they can expect vegetables and if they don't get them fast they try to chew their way out of the cage. I bought something to cover the edges of the coro with, and it works really well... the parts I've been able to force on so far, anyway. Maybe this plastic is a little too heavy duty.

    Today I also clipped the new girls' nails for the first time. I noticed both girls have calluses on ...

    The girls are all super confused and keep running and hiding whenever they hear the other pigs moving on the other level, but soon I think they will be happier in these spacious cages! My only issue with them so far is the amount of Carefresh bedding I have to put in them. My 2X4 cage used about half a bag of bedding, but somehow these 2X5 cages take 3/4 of a bag each (That's $30 ...
  5. New Pigs and New Cages

    Last week, on the 17th, I adopted two more guinea pigs from the Animal Shelter! I hadn't been planning on getting any more pigs for a while, but I saw a video of these girls on a friend's Facebook and fell in love. They looked so sweet and well behaved with the shelter volunteer!

    Their names at their previous home were Lilly and Ellie. I am keeping Lilly's name, but Ellie's name will change since I already have an Elli. Several people have suggested "Daisy," and it ...
