    General: Re: Traveling Guinea Pig Mom

    Part of my concern is that my brother won't always be there to take care of them. Like, for example, on my next two trips, he'll be coming with me, so he can't serve as their caretaker during those...

    General: Traveling Guinea Pig Mom

    I need some advice from you fellow guinea pig owners.

    When I first got my pigs back in February, one reason I went for them was because at the time I had never done much traveling (a day or...

    Hay: Hay Rack?

    I need some recommendations.

    I've been buying hay in bulk for my boys. Unfortunately, they seem to be going through the hay faster than I'd anticipated, primarily because of waste. I use a cat box...
  5. Adopt: 2 Non-Bonded Males in Northeast Georgia

    If anyone lives in the Atlanta area or is willing to drive north of it, these two boys need a home. I saw them at the shelter today. Despite coming from the same home, the two are unfortunately not...
  6. Behavior: Re: New Pig and Itís Absolutely Terrified.

    Shy piggies are not uncommon when they first come home. It's a new environment, and it takes time for them to adjust, some faster than others. I can testify that sitting next to the cage and talking...

    Feet: Swollen Foot

    Quick question.

    A few weeks ago, I pet-sat two female guinea pigs for a family that I know. Today, the owners told me that something is wrong with one of the girls. I don't have any pictures, but...
  9. C&C: Re: C & C kitchen needs daily cleaning??

    Usually when the hay starts to stink, the majority of the pellets are sawdust, so I pretty much have to dump it out anyway. Lately I've been putting a thin layer of pellets on the bottom and changing...
  10. C&C: Re: C & C kitchen needs daily cleaning??

    For my boys' kitchen, I use pine pellets from my local Tractor Supply store; they capture the odor really well, but I do change them out every few days because the hay does start to stink. When I was...

    General: No Vitamin C Drops!

    So a lesson I thought that I'd share with you all. When I did research before bringing my boys home, I knew not to give them vitamin C drops in their water, that giving them fresh veggies was far...

    Adopting: Males and Females in Same Room?

    So for the past week (and for the upcoming week) I'm pet-sitting two female guinea pigs for a family I know. I've really come to love the girls, and I pity them because they're fed cheap pellets and...

    Frustrated: Re: No Tunnel?

    Unfortunately, that's not possible. The tunnel is like a big spring, and there's no way to take the polyester covering off unless I cut it off (which would probably ruin the tunnel anyway).

    Frustrated: No Tunnel?

    So a few months ago, I bought my boys a tunnel off of Amazon. It's a Living World toy that was highly rated, and I thought the boys would like it. I sat by the cage and introduced it to them today....

    Say What?: Re: Rapid chirping like a bird...

    Chirping at night is always fun. The first night I had my boys, Mercury started chirping. I freaked out, thinking he was scared, but he was fine after I put a night light near their cage. He hasn't...

    Bedding: Advice on Temporary Bedding

    Hello, all.

    I need some advice. Later this month, I'll be taking care of two female guinea pigs while their owners go on vacation. I'm planning on making them a simple 2 x 4 C&C cage to house them...
  17. Behavior: Re: Im confident my gp hate me. Should I lookfor new owner?

    As the others have said more eloquently, she likely doesn't hate you. She wasn't raised right, so she more than likely is scared/strongly dislikes humans because she associates them with bad things....

  19. General: Re: Beginner pig keeper here, please give advice!

    Guinea Lynx is a website that has a lot of good information on piggie care.

    Pigs are expensive pets. Buying the proper cage and reusable bedding was pricey, but it's worth it for a one-time...

    Pellets: Which Oxbow?

    So my pigs are currently eating pellets from Small Pet Select because that's what the rescue was giving them. I'm planning on gradually introducing Oxbow pellets to them once I'm halfway through...
  23. Behavior: Re: Guinea pigs only drink 1 out of 2 water bottles?

    My pigs have two water bottles: one glass and one plastic. They far prefer the glass one. Not sure why, as the other one works, but it seems even piggies have their favorites!

    They didn't say. They just said it was one of the last bales that they had.
