    I love your naming scheme and your gorgeous pigs!

    Newbie here...please don't be mad.

    I forgot to add: we demand (kindly ;) ) more pictures! How dare you give us only a slight peek at Ozzy.

    Newbie here...please don't be mad.

    Your pigs are so cute! Three boys must be a lot of antics and fun, I can only imagine all of the energy those three little ones have. I like the fleece too, cool choice. Oh, and people: Lets not derail (yet another) intro thread into (yet another) discussion about why buying from a pet store is...

    Hello.. Please Help

    Water down some lettuce and shove it through the same crack she got in through. I would put a little pile of fresh hay near the crack, too, and see if it lures her out of there.

    Hey Fellow Guinea Pig lovers!

    I would advise against adding anything to the water, especially Tang. Vitamin C degrades rapidly in water and sunlight and most of it will be gone before your pigs get any. Plus, changing the taste of their water could dissuade them from drinking it, which would be a big problem. If you are...

    Introducing Sheldon!

    :eye-poppi He is such a handsome pig. Congrats on the addition! The bad part: now we have to wait for quarantine to be over for pictures of the introductions. PS: I love their names (and the show), too!

    Hey Fellow Guinea Pig lovers!

    When I had a 2nd level and ramp my pigs refused to use the ramp until it had "rails" (half grid to prevent them from going over the edge) on it. They were even more apt to use it if it was covered, but they also would sleep and pee on the ramp if it was covered.

    Welcome Barly

    Ah, I see. I suppose I made an assumption as well with the price. I've actually seen people try to rehome pigs for $150! But seriously, what a cute pig! It looks like Carliee enjoys her new roommate... how are they getting along today?

    Welcome Barly

    Please don't take offense, this is not an attack on you or your cute pig. I'm not trying to derail this, but this needs to be said for those who think they are doing right by pigs by purchasing from a breeder: $40 only encourages them to continue breeding. Perhaps this pig won't be "producing...

    New here with a question!

    First, thank you for adopting. Most guinea pigs like company, as cavies are herd creatures. There is always the exception to the rule but in general they do better with other guinea pigs around. I know that my solo pig became much more sociable when I got her a friend, and even more so with...

    Introductions 4th day

    Let it happen. Introductions can be nerve racking, but as long as there is no blood, let them be. If Shelly incessantly bullies Quin and doesn't let her eat or drink then consider separating. However, what you are seeing is normal behavior of pigs establishing dominance. Read over the normal...

    Hellooo to all cavy-lovers!

    Wow, such pretty pigs.

    New here, and new to guinea pigs

    Sarah is right... in general, multiple boars will fight in the presence of sows. I definitely wouldn't get them all neutered in hopes that they will all live with one sow peacfully. Another option would be to neuter just one of the boars and pair him with the sow.
