Hi we are new to the guinea pig world and thanks to my daughters and son we now have 3... oh wait make that 4 guinea pigs now, and more on the way! The kids wanted a pet and hubby and I were not on board so we told them that they would have to do research and present the facts to us on everything Cavy. After months of them gathering info and researching right down to how much it would cost weekly, instead of playing they convinced us that they were ready for new pets. We drove 4hours one way to go to a breader who had 3 bonded sisters (one for each child) and then the 4 hours back home. Maple, Butterscotch and Sugar Sparkle are the names the kids chose for the pigs and we were all very excitecd to have them. At first we had a bit of a rough start (found out that they did not like the hay that was recommended) they love orchard hay. fast forward a month and just yesterday Maple started making a wierd noise and then my daughter came running into my room crying that something was wrong with Maple. I went to go check and low and behold Maple had a baby!hmy: We were shocked because we never once felt the baby! Well then we jumped on line and started doing the mad dash research on babies and to confirm on how to check the sexs of the other 2 pigs. Well they are all girls and Sugar is pregnant aswell ! Butter has had to be removed from the others because she has all of a sudden become agressive and we are wondering if it is to do with the fact that she is the only one not expecting that we can tell. Hubby and I are having a hard time with all of this becasue we did not sign up for more pigs (that is why we drove so far to get pigs from a breader who had thier pigs seporated at 3 weeks so we would not have babies to deal with) Also the kids are getting so attached already ... but there is such thing as too many right???
