My pigs are 4 1/2 months, 1 and 2 1/2. They still poop in the dish. I have tried dishes that hook onto the side, raising it up a little...they still pooped in the dish. I hate to tell you this but I seriously doubt this is something they will grow out of. If they do, they you are truly blessed.

I find poos frequently in the food dish. I just pick them out and throw them away. As for them outgrowing it, ha, I doubt mine ever will because CoCo is full grown.

Is there any tell tale signs that would give me an idea of how old one of my pigs is?
Hes male and quiet large, not sure of his weight though.
I was told he was 8 weeks when I bought him, I think hes an Abby and he was big even at 8 weeks , I've had him for maybe 2 mths now. He's the sneaky one!

My babies at 8 weeks weigh 16oz. You really cant judge a guinea pig's age on its weight, they all differ depending upon how much they eat and how big their bodies are.
