hay i was just wonderin are all new guinea pigs a little scared of you?
Welcome :) Yes guinea pigs are timid at first but once they realize you are not going to hurt them they will stop hiding. Try hand feeding them veggies and giving them lap time and they will come around.
They are prey animals by nature; their instinct is to run and hide from things larger than them, because in the wild, chances are that larger thing wants to eat them. But yours will most likely get used to you over time. Just make sure you give them some interaction every day, whether it's taking them out of the cage to cuddle, or hand-feeding their favorite vegetables.
thanks you really helped out :)
