    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    All right, I'll discuss with my parents what size they think would be best for both us and the pigs. We can probably make a 3x5. I'll set up the cage next week and let you know how the introduction goes!

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    Ok, thank you! Once we have the cage all set up, we'll introduce them probably using a buddy bath and a nicely sized neutral area. I'll let you know how it goes. Can you see the attachment now? I just wanted to make sure this layout was ok before I bought all the coroplast and extra grids for...

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    Ok, so do you think this layout for the pigs would work out, or should I make the male cage larger? I'm not sure if I can do a 3x6, but maybe a 3x5? I could definitely do a 3x4 with the 2x3 loft, though. What should the strategy be for reintroducing the male pigs? Should I put them in a...

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    Sorry for going AWOL again. Anyways, I didn't really explain my plans very well, so I believe you misunderstood. I don't mean directly next to each other with one small C&C wall in between. I meant they'll have floor time and have both cages in the same room, but each cage would have some sort...

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    No, the cages are not side by side. They're in totally different rooms. I could make a 3x4 with a loft, but we'd need to move them to the same room as the female pigs because of spacing issues, so here's what I'm wondering: If we move the two cages (male and female) to the same room, but...

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    Sorry for taking so long, the commotion in my house never stops. Anyways, could you let me know where in this picture is the anal sac? Thank you! And also, are there any other options for grouping my pigs? Do you think there’s a way to somehow get Pancake and Oreo to get along?

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    I can say with confidence that they are male - their testicles are visible and also I can get a penis to extrude. I think the issue here is just that I'm not too familiar with the anatomy of a boar's genitals. Do anal sacs come in different shapes and sizes or something? In the video I watched...

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    Once again, I have more issues with my boars. I apologize in advance if this isn't the right place to put this since it isn't really medical related and this post is kind of old, but it makes some sense to put it here. Anyways, the plan (which I had entirely forgotten to mention here, sorry!)...

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    Is there a higher risk of infection if we neuter the guinea pigs in the summer? They'll be 4 months old in about a month now and I believe I read somewhere that it is more of a risk if you neuter them in summer. However, I can't find the website that I found it on, so I can't send you the link...

    Cage Rabbit cages ok for piggies?

    Don't worry about it! You'll learn so much as you spend more time on this forum and with your guinea pigs. Best of luck to you on your guinea pig adventure!

    Cage Rabbit cages ok for piggies?

    Actually, that is only 6.5 square feet, which is below the bare minimum of 8 square feet. However, 10 square feet is recommended. You could probably eventually find a rabbit cage large enough for guinea pigs, but the much better option would be a C&C cage. They are affordable, high-quality...

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    Ok! After they are neutered, can they live in separate cages but then come together for floor time? That should be alright since there's lots of space, right? For now, hopefully they'll adjust well to the separation. Thank you again!

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    So I have a few more questions regarding the separation of the pups. Firstly, should I let them still be able to see each other? Should I put their cages next to each other? I am fully aware they should not have "supervised" floor time together since mating happens so fast, but I mean little...

    Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    I just checked again, and now I am almost certain they are both males. I definitely saw something pop out of both of them when I pushed their belly area, maybe about half a centimeter. That is a telltale sign, right? Like there is no way that you would ever see that on a female? Here are some...
