I am confused about my guinea pigs urine. I want to make sure this is normal, I put pee pads down to get an accurate color and it looks orangey or even pinkish? My two girls seem to be acting normal but I just want to make sure. I attached a photo and any advice would be helpful.

Urine darkens pretty quickly. Fresh urine can be colorless, but look like that after a few hours.

It can also vary in color and look darker from some of the foods they eat, like red leaf lettuce.
