  1. Paper bedding

    Hi everyone, I was looking to see if anyone had any input on where I can get non bleached paper bedding? I ordered some from chewy and from small pet select, which I am happy with but for how big my guineas cage is I have to buy 3 or 4 bags and it's expensive per bag :/ I got a bundle off of small pet select of food, hay and bedding which was a great deal for all of that but the bedding was just a small bag. I was in the process of shredding up a bunch of cardboard to make bedding for them but then ...
  2. 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 ...
  3. 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 ...
  4. 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 ...
  5. Cages Are DONE!

    I got up at around 8:30 this morning, and by 1 p.m. I finished my new cages!

    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 ...
