I have been looking virtually everywhere for a female GP to adopt to pair up w/ Macy. Well I found not one but a pair. (broken link removed)
Is is harder to introduce a pair to a single or does it still go pretty much the same way? The intro is really the only thing that I am worried about. Are there any questions specifically that ya"ll can think of that I should ask before getting them. She doesnt know really how old they are because she got them from a friend, but she has had them 5 months. She is rehomeing because her college dorm won't allow them. I'm so excited!!
 
Cute pigs! I've never done introductions so I'm not sure... In theory this is a better way to introduce them than just a single pig because if they don't get along you at least have one pair, instead of 2 singular pigs.

You might ask about when they last went to the vet, and be sure to check their gender yourself before you pair them up with Macy.
 
*Afterthought* you also need to be sure you have enough space for 3 guinea pigs - at least a 2x5 grid cage.
 
Thanks for the advice! I do plan on sexing them myself for sure. They have never been to the vet, but I plan on taking them for a checkup during their quarantine. The cage I have now is a 2x4 and I already have the coro and grids to expand to a 3x5, I just havent done it yet. I just really hope this goes well, the intros are the only thing that I am really worried about. They are in a petstore cage, can they stay in that during their quarantine? I know that isnt ideal but would it work?
 
I would keep them in the pet store cage during the quarantine. It's temporary so it should be fine.
