    Hi Caitlin! I don't know where you are exactly on Long Island, but you can try to contact Have a Heart Guinea Pig Rescue. They have at least one foster home on Long Island (Nassau County). There is also a woman who has a small, home-based rescue out in Riverhead. Message me if you need more info. Nice to find another Long Islander here, and congrats on your babies!

    Did you really?! Thanks for letting me know how good they are! I am definitely going to contact them when we are ready to see if they have any piggies available here on Long Island. Did you get your girls from a foster home on Long Island? Was their adoption process complicated? How long did it take you to get your girls?

    @PiggyMommyWendy, I'm actually in PA. They have foster homes in PA, NJ, DE and NY I believe. It was a quick process. I dealt with Mandy and Marci. Both were awesome and answered all questions I had since these were our first pigs.

    Thank you, MamaP, for the helpful rescue info! I appreciate it! You're so right, Caitlin, it's not fair! It's the price we pay for living here.

    Re: Sexing Babies

    Even though it's possible to sex babies at birth, sometimes it's not that easy. Some baby girls have a little nub where the penis is on a male. Some baby boys are slower at developing than the others.

    I wouldn't worry too much until you get to the 3 week mark. Usually by then the little boys will start behaving like males. At that point if you are still having problems, then go for help.

    Regarding the photos shown--if you got something to pop out of the nub then it's definitely a boy!

    And girls can be weaned at three weeks, too.

    Re: Sexing Babies

    @foggycreekcavy, thank you. My two girls have the little nub and it was confusing at first. But when I compare them to the boys you can really see the difference. The Y is prominent. It was the nub that was throwing me off. My 3 month old female has that same nub when I checked.
