I adopted two sow pig's from a so called "animal rescue" that I found advertising that they had guinea pigs and rabbits to re-home.They said Ruby and Bessie were sisters. I have checked and reconfirmed this to be true (that they are female that is). I have had these sweet girls for around 52 days. Last night I went into their room to tell them good night and refill the hay rack and I saw 3 piggy's instead of 2! There was a little baby guinea pig running around the cage with Ruby and Bessie! I almost passed out! I checked both girls and it seems Bessie is the mother. What do I do now to insure this little baby stays safe and healthy? I also dont know if it should stay with both girls or if I need to make another C&C cage?

Congradulations! Your new baby can stay with both mother and Aunt. Make sure your cage is babyproofed so the baby cannot get thru the grids. You can put in cardboard so it blocks the grids or if you have extra grids overlap the grids so the baby cannot get threw.


Momma will need extra calcium. You can feed pellets with alfalfa or mix in alfafa hay. Extra veggies. Baby will eat pellets, veggies and hay as well as drinking from the mother.
Wouild love to see pictures. There are many members on here who have had babies and they too will help you.
 
Surprise! Congrats...I think. Do you know if the baby is a male or female yet? Personally I would keep it. If its a female you could house it with the mom and her sis. If its a male and you have a c&c cage then you could just extend it with a high partition and make room for him. I say high because males have been known to climb that single grid partition. Good Luck! I would love to see pics!

Sounds like you have alot of baby proofing to do!!! Good Luck!!
