    Separate floor times ?

    When I had just one guinea pig I had him out of the cage whenever I was home. Since I just got a new piggie a few days ago and he's still under quarantine I have to split my time between 2 pigs? What's a good amount of floor time for both? I usually do about an hour with both pigs but should I be doing more?

    I wouldn't have both do floor time in the same space, even separately. I imagine some germs could linger. Since quarantine is temporary, I wouldn't bother until they're introduced but you could also do floor time in a different area for each pig.

    I do one pig has floor time in my room and the other on the living room where he's kept. I bother with floor time for both because I don't want them bored in there cages all day when I have the time to take them out

    Oh okay, I see no issue then. I don't think there's really an ideal amount of time. Whatever works for you.
