    General: Re: Neuter the male or spay the female?

    Ok, I just wanted to make sure he wouldn't drive her crazy. That's definitely a relief, because I REALLY don't want to put my piggy through a surgery if it's not necessary.

    Behavior: Re: Newbie silkie owner here

    It took my guinea pig a few weeks to stop running away from me when I walked into the room. She'll warm up to you, she just needs time to adjust.

    Re: This is Long Overdue!

    They spay all of their females, so I think I'll keep him unneutered and then adopt a spayed female. Don't worry, I wouldn't put a piggy through that.

    Don't worry, the local shelter spays/neuters all of their pigs, so she'll be spayed.

    Frustrated: Re: No Tunnel?

    My guinea pig chews on his all the time, I don't think it hurts them. He hasn't been able to chew through it, I think they do it because of curiosity.

    When my guinea pig is exploring during floor time, he makes little bubble noises. They're not as high or as loud as wheeking. Is there a special name for this, and what does it mean?
