How much weight gain is normal in a roughly 3 month old boar? He went from 423g to 536g in less then 2 weeks. I know I wanted him to get big fast so I could un-baby proof the cage but isn't that a little much? Tomoyo my sow, who was approx 2 months old when I bought her, took a month to gain that much weight. Is he just a really healthy growing boy?

He's also become nocturnal (I have no clue why) and is driving my girls nuts (not to mention my husband and I. The cage is in the bedroom since it's the easiest room to regulate temp in) He sleeps all day and runs really fast laps at night. The girls durr at him as they try to sleep. I thought guinea pigs were diurnal. So what's up with the sudden change?
