Hello everyone.
I adopted a 2 year old female piggy today, her name is Biba (pronounced as Beeba, i guess, I'm not a native English speaker). I have never had piggies before so this is all very exciting and new to me. She has explored her cage and seems a little inactive for now, but I'm sure that she will become more active as she gets used to the new environment.

Congratulations 🎊. They are so much fun to play with and care for. From what I’ve been told they should usually have a cagemate so they don’t become lonely and depressed. Good luck with your sweet little girl. I currently have 7 piggies because my male was sold to me as a female and got my other two girls pregnant. I now how four girls and three boys.

Congratulations on adopting Biba. Guinea pigs are a lot of fun, and they are also a very unique animal. For example, they graze on and off all day and night, so they need hay available 24/7. Timothy and orchard grass are good choices for adult guinea pigs. And they need to get vitamin C from the foods they eat, or from supplements, just like people.

Here is a link to a very good Care Guide for Guinea Pigs
