    Two Pigs one Cage, Two different ages

    Hey there!
    I might be adopting a new piggy. He is two months old and needs to eat alfalfa hay and pellets. I would like to introduce him to my 8 month old guinea pig. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can ensure each pig gets the nutrition he needs?

    You can feed him timothy pellets. He'll need grass hay anyways. Alfalfa is just a supplement. While you're holding him, you can hand feed him alfalfa hay or veggies with high calcium, such as kale and parsley.
