Licorice was just chirping:?: I thought only females did this! I am 99% certain he was chirping. He's having floor time at the moment and I was sitting here typing when I heard it. I immediately stopped and my husband turned down the TV and he just kept chirping. Lasted about 20 seconds. He's running around now so he's not hurt. What an amazing sound!
 
I just uploaded this today. My son taped Wishbone with his phone. It's sort of quiet, but you can hear her chirping. I don't think chirping is exclusive to males or females.

Yep that's exactly what it sounded like. So cool.. I didn't think I'd ever hear that from either of my Pigs.

I think it's the coolest sound a guinea pig can make. Did anything startle Licorice? My son was petting the guinea pigs on the lower level and when he stood up, he scared her. She ran around and started chirping when he walked away. I wonder if Licorice heard a sound on TV that scared him.
 
It's by no means limited to females. And it can go much longer than 20 seconds. The longest I've ever timed my chirper is about 7 minutes.
 
It may have been the TV because he was just lounging around. I hope he does it again sometime so I can record him. But if not, Im glad I got to hear it at least once!
