    Meet the babies



    Here are my babies, born March 2nd. Think they're both girls.

    @c.sheree - those babies are adorable! I do love the Abyssinians. The OP lives in Freeport, IL though.

    Re: looking for guinea pigs

    They just turned 5 weeks and have been segregated until I can determine sexes. I got them because prior litter was mis-sexed.

    Re: looking for guinea pigs

    How are they separated if you aren't sure of their sex yet?

    Re: looking for guinea pigs

    What I mean is - how did you determine who to separate if you don't know which are female and which are male?

    Both babies and mom are in 3 separate cages.

    Re: looking for guinea pigs

    Males can impregnate females at 3 weeks old. If any males are with any females - including mom, the females can be pregnant already.

    Meet the babies

    Right now no one is together, so that can't happen. Mom is by herself and each baby is in separate spaces too. There are no 2 piggies together.

    Re: Meet the babies

    @c.sheree - okay, I misunderstood. Well, once gender is determined there will be a lovely reunion of sorts :-) What are your plans with the babies?

    Re: Meet the babies

    I'd like to rehome them. 6 months ago I had 1 piggie, now I have 6!

    If you can get clear photos of their genitals and post them up we may be able to help you sex them.

    Re: Meet the babies

    If you're having trouble determining the gender of these, how certain are you of your other 3? How many cages do you have? I agree that these look like males.

    They both look like males to me as well. Here are some good further sexing tips with pictures:

    When you're absolutely certain they are both male you can try putting them together, since they are social herd animals:
