I 'm a newcomer when it comes to owning guineas. I have two adults right now, well adult enough. One is about 6 months (we think, we got her from a friend who was allergic, so we are not to sure, but she is still growing so we believe that she is under a year) and my other is about 4 or 5 months and we got her from a pet store already pregnant:(. Her baby is 4 weeks old, but looks more like three months, she is that big, but she was also very big when she came out, about twice the size of the other baby (was a boy, so we had to give him away).
I just hope that I can take care of my guineas half as good as you are apparantly taking care of yours, because I would love for them to make it to at least 7 or 8.

WOW, ten years old. Youre so lucky. I hope mine live to be ten, or 8, or 6, haha, if I am lucky. I have one boar that's 1 year 9 months. I have two babies one who is almost 10 weeks, the other is about six. I am getting one more girl, next month from a litter who is only 1.5 weeks now. I am so excited. It's weird how you start off with one and end up with so many more.

Do larger sized guinea pigs tend to live longer?
