    Rehoming Anyone in the Livingston, Louisiana area looking for 2 pigs that need a better home?

    Hey all, a lady on facebook is selling these two gorgeous pigs, and usually I wouldn't think anything of it but the poor pigs are in a horribly dirty small cage and she doesn't even know what gender they are!! I asked the gender and she said 'I think males, if you want them we can make a deal' I...

    Want a Guinea Pig(s) Questions!

    My pigs are in my room and I still managed to make room for a 2x4 with a loft.... Even one pig shouldnt be confined to a pet store cage its really not fair to the pig. Even if you cant build à c&c there are alternatives like midwest cages which are definitely better then a pet store one

    Play What tunnels should I use?

    I made this tunnel out of a bent grid and then looped fleece in and out the holes and tied it together until it was covered so they would feel safe in it, my pigs love it! If you have an extra grid and fleece it's super easy and doesn't cost anything :) here is a picture of it.

    Cage Hay rack made out of grids

    Does anyone have a hay rack made out of grids? I have a whole bunch of extra grids and I want to get a second hay rack I'd rather not spend money if I can just make one. If anyone has one can you post a pic for me please so I can see how it's made?

    Chewing Pigs chewing on grids and fleece

    I just made my C&C about a week ago and I've noticed my pigs chewing on the grids a lot, there's part of paint missing on grids and everything, also I've seen both of them chewing on the fleece. I try to discourage them from doing it when I see them but of course I'm not around 24/7 to catch...

    Genitals Guinea pig miscairrage

    Just read this whole thread. I'm so glad lelia is doing ok after that that which I'm sure for her was a tramatic experience. I agree with what everyone said she might wanna walk because of pain, after that many babies she has to be hurting. I also thing it might be a good idea to get a vets...

    Sounds Piggy making weird noises when she eats, almost like hiccups..

    Thank for for the reassurance :) I was worried because I had never heard it before but she stopped after a few minutes and she seems fine, I googled it and pigs can get hiccups if they don't swallow there food properly. It scared me for a minute though just wanted to make sure it was normal!

    Sad Is my poor guinea pig bloated?

    She definitely looks pregnant to me also. Like someone said considering her age it may be hard on her if she is and this is her first litter. If I were you I'd have another talk with your mom about bringing her to the vet, that way you can confirm if she is pregnant and also get teddy sexed...
