    Hi! Care to meet my boys?

    Welcome! They are adorable! I love the color on Thomas! You referred to hay as a "treat". Hay should be a bulk of their diet. :) It helps keep things moving and their back teeth ground down. Veggie time is loud around here. When I say, "Veggie time!" our pigs go crazy!

    Sexing Babies

    I sexed my boys as males the day they were born. There was a pretty distinguished "i", albeit small. I checked daily until 3.5 weeks. It took until around 3 weeks old for the penis to protrude when gently pressed. Can you post some photos for us? Easier said than done with wiggly babies, I know. :)

    Brands Sweet Meadow Hay & Pellets

    We just switched to KMS hay/pellets. I found that even though shipping was $30 for a 45lb box, the price per pound was only $1.50, where a bag of Oxbow is $7.99 for 14oz. It was a big upfront cost, but the overall cost of $1.50lb was substantially less than $7.99 for less than a pound. :)

    How Many? Female companion for male guinea pig?

    I would get him a male companion. He will want to mate with the girls. Keeping him near them would be like torture to him when the girls are in heat. I have two baby males and a two females (adult and young adult). Their cages are on complete opposite sides of our living room.
