    How soon till you can remove a litter from the mother?

    Someone is giving up a mother and her babies for adoption. I cant adopt all of them. Theyre about 2-3 weeks old. Is that old enough to adopt a child or a mother?

    I think you're good if they're 3 weeks. I'm assuming this because 3 weeks is when male babies need to be separated from their mothers and sisters to prevent pregnancy.

    Followup question. Do baby guinea pigs need to be quarantined? And is that a bad idea since they need an adult to learn how to be a pig?
