Guinea pig babies price drop

The $100 price per baby is a dead giveaway - it's also under category of "baby and kids"

Baby Guinea Pigs!!

"three days old and they can feed by themselves"

I checked again and they were gone as I flagged them. I think.

I do have a question regarding this, and I don't mean to sound insensitive or ignorrant, but how are you sure these people are breeding. I know some of them are obvious, tons of babies, all the time. But I read so many stories of people having accidental litters, some people adopting two pregnant guinea pigs. How can we be sure and not just flagging people who are trying to find homes for babies? I was going to flag one the other day but I just wasn't sure.

I'd say flag it anyway. It's pretty easy to make a new add. If they are flagged for selling babies, they could repost a new add saying not to flag. They usually have a story about an accidental pregnancy or what not. Although they could by lying, I won't flag if they claim the babies were not intentionally brought into this world. Also, if they seem concerned about their well-being and charge $10-$30. If they charge $50 or something then they are trying to make a profit. I've also read that it only takes two flags to bring a post down. When I see a breeder's posting, I flag it on my desktop, laptop, smartphone, etc and it goes away very quickly!
