How many guinea pigs do you have? Do you want to adopt anymore? How much space do you have in your cage( for how many guinea pigs)?


I have 4 piggies at the moment. I don't plan on adopting anymore piggies due to the fact that my 2 females are having babies. Princess is having 3 babies and I suspect Brownie is having 2 babies. But we will see. I will only be able to keep 2 to 3 piggies. I have a home lined up for 2 of Princess's babies or one of Princess's babies and one of Brownie's babies. I have a 16.5 sq ft wooden cage. It's 2 level and each level is the same size. So I wouldn't keep more than 4 or 5 guinea pigs in each level of the cage because I would want them to have enough of space. So for each level I have enough space for 5 piggies on the bottom and 5 piggies on the top.

How about all you guys? Would love to see pigtures as well.
 
I have one piggie right now in a 2x4 grid cage. I'd love to get a playmate for him but my husband doesn't want anything else that could cost more money in the future (vet bills).
 
Awww Hopefully he will be ok with it. Sometimes if you have 2 or more more sick piggies, the vet will only charge you you for one sick visit for all of them and then you pay for the shots or antibiotics for each piggy.

Tell your hubby that a lonely piggy is more likely to get depressed and ill :)
 
I hope to get at least 1 more piggie, 2 more at the most. :)
 
@Greenbean, that's great. Hope you're able to adopt or rescue 2 if you can. Good luck with them and post pigtures of them when you get them. How big is your cage again? I know we were talking about our cages on the chat earlier in the week.

Well, I cleaned out a room that we used for storage, and put the piggy cage in there.
It's a 4x6 with a 1x2 second level. But I plan on expanding the second level. ^_^
We did order one off this site, but we were trying to put it in a different, smaller room. We weren't even thinking about the spare room. :) Here are some pictures:

In the first picture you can see Bean near her pigloo. :)
 
Wow that's a big cage for just one piggy. It looks great. 2 more piggies would live very comfortably in there with still tons of space for them all to run around. Great job on the cage. I wish I had a spare room for my piggies but I don't so they are now in a 16.5 sqft wooden cage in my bedroom. Girls on top and boys on bottom.
 
I have one piggie at the moment and in a perfect world I could have at least five, but for now just working on getting a second lol. It's hard when the people that you live with do not understand that pigs are not like dogs and are not simply happy with human companionship. I am also worried that I will get another pig and they will not get along, and them being seperated would pretty much defeat the whole purpose of having another pig...
 
I currently have 7, 5 sows and 2 boars. I am always open to having more, I love em' haha!
 
I only have one piggie. I would love to have 3 or 4, and if I had unlimited money I'd want to have 10! :p

We used to have two, but Brian cost a lot of money in vet bills, and now my dad won't let us get the remaining pig, Corey, a companion. :(
 
We have 2 girls, and I would love to have more. My ideal would be 6, but money is a factor. ;)
 
We have four guinea pigs. A pair each in two different 20 square feet cages. I would be open to two more guinea pigs. One additional pig in each cage but I'm not looking for a piggy. If a male one needs help I have the space to step up and help.
 
I just have one piggy, talking my parents into letting me adopt a friend, going good so far!
 
Just got done expanding the second level! Tomorrow I am getting some fleece, so I put a grid hanging so I could make a fleece forest! I am planning on getting some different fleece, and some batting too, so I can make some cuddle sacks and things like that. :) Hopefully I will get good enough at sewing that I could sell the items I make. A cuddle sack would probably be 6 dollars, what do you guys think? Too much to ask for? :) And a cuddle cup could be 10 dollars. I don't know if that's too expensive, but I will just wait and see. I want to get better at sewing before I start selling things. :)

I'm hoping to adopt 2 more piggies. Keeping my fingers crossed! :)
 
I had two pigs until Monday. Now I have just one and I'm itching to get her a companion as her behavior has already changed so much from lonliness. I would love to eventually have three but I don't know if I'll ever get that high.

Hope you find her a good companion. I'm sorry about the other one
 
I have 2 piggies, a neutered male and a female. They live in a 3x4 C&C.
I wish I could have all the piggies in the world, but I do not have the space or funds for that many!!
I am happy with my 2. I worry that adding more would change the dynamics and I don't want that to happen. My husband and wife pair are happy the way they are! ❤️
