Multiple litters of show-quality purebred silkies "on the ground right now." Sounds a whole lot like a breeder to me! And not only that, but they're breeding roans. Flagged.

What's a roan?

A roan is a colour variant caused by a gene mutation (if you google images of a roan guinea pig you will get an idea what they look like, basically it is just a solid colour broken up by lots of white furs throughout it).

The reason why breeding roans is bad is because the gene mutation which causes roaning is also responsible for Lethal Whites (which are called "lethal whites" as they are always completely white and have shorter life expectancy, if they even make it past infancy, due to moderate to sever birth deformities). If you want to know more about lethal white guinea pigs then do a search, on these forums are there are many threads about them.

Seems like a breeder. Two litters of purebreds CAN'T be accidental pregnancies.
