    Snickers and Rumbles New owner

    Hello everyone I am a new owner of two male guinea pigs they are two months old and I could use a little advice. I give them some oxbow young guinea pig pellets which I feel up just the bottom of their bowls and I give oxbow Timothy hay unlimited of course cause I know that makes up like 70% of their diet I also feed veggies in the morning and at night which consists of red leaf lettuce (one lettuce per pig) bell pepper ( I feed yellow red and green) every other day a cherry tomatoe which is cut in half and thats it is this okay? Any advice?

    At their age, they need unlimited pellets. At six months old, you change them to timothy pellets and reduce the amount to 1/8 cut each.

    What you're feeding is fine. But there's some more information on food in these links, which are recommended reading for all new pig owners:

    https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...nea-pig-owners
    https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...ur-guinea-pigs!

    Do turn them both over and compare their private parts to make sure they're both males. We've had many pregnant "males" on here because somebody couldn't properly sex a guinea pig.

    If I get a c and c Cage could I make it into a square instead of a rectangle?

    well as long as you are feeding one cup of veggie per piggy( I have a male and he is two months old too) it should be fine. I feed my piggy the same young oxbow guinea pig pellets but, once they get to about 6 months old you want to switch to something else that isn't alfalfa based. But every thing else is fine

    You can create any shape you want. Do some looking through the gallery at others' cages to get ideas.
