    Is this a boy or a girl?

    We had 6 babies 2 defined boys and 4 girls. From one gp we had 2 boys and one girl from another 3 girls but Iím a little concerned bc I think I saw how one tried to hop onto her mom and now I donít know. But just to be sure Iíll ask.

    Let's see.......you are probably at least a 110lb human dealing with a 2+ lb. guinea pig and you say "she wouldn't let me"? Then perhaps you need to recruit another 110lb human to help you wrestle this guinea pig into submission!

    I was just trying to not to hurt her bc you canít put them on their backs bc of how week their spine is. I asked for help so my guinea pigs wonít get pregnant for the second time and not for the insult or attack if you canít help me just leave

    You apparently can't take a joke......sorry. Regarding not being able to put them on their backs, that's simply not true. It is HOW you put them on their back.......and that would be unsupported and in an awkward position.

    Does Maya appear to be in pain?

    @Krtr1n4, you CAN put them on their backs as long as they're laying on something relatively flat.

    And I'm sure @spy9doc didn't mean to insult you, but she does have a point. I often point out to people who tell me that they can't do something with their guinea pig, such as hand feed it, that they're adult (or nearly adult) humans, and these are three pound animals -- you're equipped to win this battle.

    See http://www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm for help with your pig. If it's a male, you should be able to feel the bone that's in the penis if you put your finger crosswise across the abdomen just above the genital, press down firmly but not hard, and move your finger back and forth. No bone, no penis.
