    Room temperature

    I don't know if I'm posting this in the right section, so sorry in advance. I'm new to guinea pigs, I have two 3-month-old girls and I want to make sure everything is OK with them. Have done all my research on food, water, etc, just wondering what is the right room temperature to keep cause I don't want it to be too cold or too hot in the room and I have zero experience with this. TIA guys!

    If you're comfortable, they'll be comfortable. Haired pigs tend to prefer it cooler rather than warmer, while skinnies need more heat. I kept my house at about 68 degrees, and mine were fine. They can get heat stroke at anything above 85 degrees.

    Re: Room temperature

    If you really want to do it by the book, you should aim for room temperature of approximately 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit, no matter if it's haired or skinnie. Whatever you do when it comes to cage location, make sure to keep it away from direct sun or heat sources. I'll leave you with some helpful lectures and suggestions on how to achieve perfect room temperature.
