  1. Introducing a male guinea pig to two females

    I have two female guinea pigs (Mazy and JoJo) that are 3 years old. They have been together since they were babies, and are very spoiled. I want to get a male guinea pig from the shelter who is about 2 years old. He is very mellow and sweet. Would it be a good idea to introduce him to JoJo and Mazy? I've heard some people say you should have at least 3 females before getting a male, but I've also heard the opposite. The only thing I'm worried about is the male guinea pig fighting with JoJo and ...
  2. Dark urine?

She is now back with Petco, they are gonna fix her up (URI). But this isn't about Pip, ...
  4. 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 ...
