    Question Need Help Introducing Guinea Pigs?

    As my first piggy, Aela is my only piggy. I wanted to adopt only her so i could get familiar with behaviors before getting her a friend. I was homeschooled this year, so i was able to take her out and hold her and let her have floortime a lot. But, i am going back to public school, and she's gonna be lonely for 7 and a half hours a day, and even afterwards, i'm gonna have to do schoolwork!
    So, me and my parents agreed to get another guinea pig (Female, i believe i have properly sexed Aela, if you guys can give me tips for that as well, that would be wonderful), but i need help introducing them together, because Aela really shows dominance. For instance, she grabs her lettuce and takes off to protect it, and she sits on her hay to make sure nobody can take it!
    Any help would really be appreciated! Thank you!

    Read these two articles: www.cavyspirit.com/sociallife.htm (the intro section is about halfway down) and http://guinea-pigs.livejournal.com/3002707.html.

    For sexing help, see www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm. Or you can post pictures here and someone will help. Make sure the pictures are well lit and very clear.

    Thank you! I'll try to take pictures, but my piggy doesn't like staying on her back for very long, so it will be hard to sex her and take pictures
