    Are they near the females? That may be why they are fighting. Seeing them, smelling them is driving them nuts.

    Mites are usually not visible by the naked eye, not even when you use a brush. Treating guinea pigs, when dosed correctly, does no harm and may be helpful. (Babies cannot be treated until they reach a certain weight).

    See ivermectin for treatment

    Light-brown - Male
    White - Male
    Black and white - Male
    The female is the one with her head in the hidey, she always was with the white one which I tought he was a female (the vet told me 3 days ago)

    The reason your piggies are fighting is because of the female! Multiple males and any female piggy rarely works! The female piggy needs to be separated as soon as possible! Multiple females and a neutered male will work though! Hopefully this helps! Also, here's a guide to pregnancy for guinea pigs: http://www.guinealynx.info/reproduction.html

    Good Luck and Hopefully this helps
