Weight Is this a good weight?

My cavies are both almost 3 months old. One weighs 400g while the other weighs 425g. Is that a normal weight for cavies their age?

I've found info on the healthy weight range for females, but I'm not really sure how that weight range pertains to 3-month-olds.
 
It all really depends on the pig for the most part. But it sounds like they aren't far apart.
 
It really does depend on the piggie...I have little fatties, they each weighed about 700 grams at 3 1/2 months. My piggies are boars and I think your's are sows right? That seems fine, but I worried about weight as they were growing too. I think watching poo and making sure they are gaining weight gives a better sense of health :) If you're providing unlimited pellets (at that age) and hay with some veggies, I'm sure they're growing as they should.
