    Talking Rick & Daryl

    Hey y'all,

    I'm Nick, brand new to the forums (and owning guinea pigs), and this is Rick (right) & Daryl (left):



    I've had them for three months now. Not too sure how old they are exactly since I got them from a pet store (didn't really know about adopting at the time), but the worker there told me they were about 3 months when I got them. I've learned so much in the past three months about these guys and still learning

    We've definitely grown on each other the past few months!

    They're very cute! And they look alike, too, are they brothers?

    Since they came from a pet store, I recommend flipping them over to double-check they're the same- it's unlikely that one is actually female after three months together, because you'd probably have noticed signs of pregnancy, but it's never a bad idea. Sometimes pet stores don't sex their pigs right.

    Anyway, welcome to the forum!

    Luckily I figured out how to sex them early on! And yup, all good.
