    How old are my piggies? Which pellets to feed?

    I've been stressing out lately because I don't know how old my piggies are. I have the oxbow adult pellets because I thought it was the safer bet. (I know adult piggies aren't supposed to have alfalfa, which I know are for younger piggies.) I've had them about 2 weeks now and if I need to switch to the younger guinea pig pellets I'd like to do that as soon as possible. My question really, is how do I know how old they are? And if there's not a good way to tell, would it be safer to feed them the young pellets or adult pellets? If they are still young I don't want them not having the proper ingredients to grow up well

    They're about the same size, I weighed one at about 1 lb. 8 oz. as long as my scale is working correctly.

    They're old enough to be on adult pellets. I'd guess they're at least 8-9 months old.
