  1. Diet: Re: Finding calcium deposits on fleece, what should I cut back on?

    They are all older than 6 months now. I believe we have well water. It's never caused any issues before with any of our animals, pigs included. I'd have to guess its the pellets. As I said, I may be...
  2. Diet: Finding calcium deposits on fleece, what should I cut back on?

    Hey friends, it's been a while since I've been active around here.

    Anyway, I noticed today while sweeping the cage there are more white smears on my fleece than normal, and I'm a little concerned...

    Vegetables: Re: Carrot Greens

    I occasionally feed carrot tops, when the store has them. My pigs love them. I don't give them so much anymore as my pigs aren't as young, but my vet did recommend them as an occasional treat, she...

    What breed?: Re: Can 2 different GP breeds be siblings?

    I would have to say that unless a pig is bred by a breeder as a specific breed, and the lines can be traced back to prove that pig is this breed or that breed, then its most likely a hybrid of...

    Size: Re: Do Guinea Pigs Benefit The Larger The Cage?

    Although your idea sounds lovely, I have to agree with peAchyteen. Guinea pigs should NEVER be housed outside. Most users here find a hand built C&C does the job pretty well for their pigs. Some...

    Vegetables: Re: Any other piggies do this with cucumbers?

    I always wondered why my pigs don't eat the middle part of the cucumber. They used to do this to the zucchini too, but now they eat the whole slice. Same with tomatoes, they leave the middle part....
  8. Grids Re: Grids from this site vs. Target, Walmart, etc.

    I use the whitmore white 4 cube pack from walmart.com. I couldn't find grids in any stores around here, so I had to order them online. But shippings free if you have them shipped to the Walmart store...
  9. Possibly Pregnant: Re: I don't know if she's pregnant please help!

    Can you post a picture or two? If she's pretty far along, we might be able to help you determine. But I would have to say if your vet (provided they are knowledgable) didn't seem to think she was...

    Cage: Re: Is this cage suitable for 2 guinea pigs

    Unfortunately no, that cage is not big enough. It's like two pet store cages stacked on top of eAchother, and we don't recommend pet store cages of any kind unless under special circumstances. Pigs...

    C&C: Re: C &C Cages

    Pellets: Re: How much calcium?

    What brand are they? You say they are for rabbits and pigs, or you have a rabbit and pigs and pellets for both? The only pellets really recommended here are oxbow and kms.

  19. Diet: Re: Two adults and one baby. Should I buy adult or baby pellets?

    I give parsley on occasion, it's not harmful it just has a lot of C in it. I don't think a sprig once a week is going to do any harm. But you could try cilantro instead for a more common treat.

    Hay: Re: Timothy alfalfa kings hay

    If your pig is older than 6 months than no, do not give it to him. Alfalfa is only good for young pigs and pregnant sows. Otherwise it has too much vitamin C for an adult pig.

    Frustrated: Re: Naughty piggie peeing on hay

    I throw away more hay than they eat every single day. They really are picky about their hay, and which strands are actually good enough to eat. Yeah it's annoying but that's just how they are. Try...

  25. Fighting: Re: Should I introduce a new pig to a lone pig who has been separated due to fighting

    After they've been exposed to eachother, any illness that could be passed will have been passed already. So quarantine would just be a waste of time and space. But if for whatever reason you can't...
