This is pathetic! :D The girls are making me go deaf! When I had just Nala and Pumpkin, the noise wasn't all that bad. Now that I have Sarabi, its SO LOUD!!! Sarabi already wheeks SUPER loud, but when you factor in the other two, oh boy… Even when I feed them, they wheek…when they eat. It doesn't really bug me(I think its adorable), but is there anyway to lower their voices? lol Girls, use your INSIDE voices!

I've got 8 pigs atm (2 are mine, 1 is a foster who came in heavily pregnant and she had 5 beautiful babies). My god...the NOISE! All of them are wheekers, and my mum thinks I encouraged them by naming them after people in the music industry. I've got Bowie (David), Ziggy (Stardust), Bach (Sebastian from Skid Row), Mahalia (Barnes, actually for the first week I thought she was a he so we had nicknamed her Jimmy because she's so loud!) and Chrissie (Amphlet). It's insane...at some stage I have to take a video of them all in full voice.

Isn't it fun? My girls wheel whenever they think I'm within earshot, lest I forget the poor, starving guinea pigs who need more veggies hourly to survive.

Feeding time around here can freak out the unknowing! We have 10 piggies and I do believe they know how to tell time! I had a friend visiting at dinner time and all of a sudden....WHEEKKKKEEEeeeeee from 10 piggies and my friend thought something was wrong with them! She was a little taken aback by their antics and was hesitant to help feed them because they were acting like wild beasts! I really should try to get a video of them doing it because they are just to silly!

I have actually had neighbors complain about the noise, when I told them it was three little guinea pigs making the racket, they looked very confused!

Mine has basically quit wheeking. :( She knows the timing of her goodies and has never been disappointed so she just patiently waits in her pigloo knowing any minute it's chow time! Maybe if I'm taking too long I may hear a soft wheek but she is so quiet that sometimes I "forget" she's right next to me!

I have 5 piggies and all of them are loud. Even the babies get all excited when it is time to eat. I can get a bag of chips out for myself and hear all of them wheeking and carrying on. I love feeding time when they get all worked up! You would think the poor things never get to eat.
