I know it wouldn't have made any difference if your piggy was a Brody or a Bianca, but I'm happy for your sake that you don't have to pay that outrageous price for a neuter. I now have to revise my comment and say that Bianca is a beautiful girl.
I hope I didn't offend her by calling her handsome. Lol!

No way could I part with her if it was a him. Just relieved neutering isnt on the need list. Long ago the price was double digits here. No more! :0

[MENTION=27627]Artista[/MENTION], I didn't want you to think I was ignoring you but I couldn't get those attachments to open. I have several stuffed animal guinea pigs and I keep the S&P shakers alongside of them on top of the cabinet where we keep our DVD's. With my guinea pig calendar and the stuffed animals along with several guinea pig pictures the room looks like a guinea pig shrine. But I love it all.

I have more bird statues. Most is gifts from folks who knew my passions. Hopefully these will work. Shakers with a piggy bank..

She is such a cutie. I love that first picture where she is looking directly into the camera. That little fluff of hair at her crest just makes her expression so animated. It's like she is saying, I'm home and I'm very happy to be here.

She's very active in the eves. Zoomies and popcorn tonight, and happy wheeks!

She is very soft and fluffy. Different than Bella. She's pretty easy. Gave her a bath without much drama. Trimmed her "skirt". Blow drying her hair was funny. It's so thick, soft, smoothe and flowing. I have cutsey names too like binky, bonky, binky bonk, bonk bonk...

You definitely have a beautiful pig. I'm just amazed how different she looks from one side to the other. You really notice it from picture 2 to picture 3. It's like two different pigs. The pictures you took of her in her bath were great.

I like that you have pet names for her because I do the same with my pigs. Last summer I had my window open near the pig's cage and I was talking my baby talk to them when the UPS driver walked by. I know he heard me. Fortunately he just left the package on the porch and waved to me as he walked back to the truck. I'm sure he wondered who the heck I was talking to in such a manner.

Scooter was like that too. Literally one side of his head was different than the other and you'd swear he was two different pigs. A friend of mine jokingly asked how many pigs I had once.

My wife chastised me recently for having SO many nicknames for our boys. Rarely do I ever use their actual names but they always seem to remember them. She was concerned they'd never know their names if I didn't use them, and then I proved her wrong by calling them by name and each pig reacted.

No one who EVER knew me, would know that I talk to my pigs like young children. But yeah, I talk to them like they are the toddlers they actually are. I'm sure I'd never live it down if any of the guys around me knew how I address the furballs.

Yeah, just looking at Bianka's face each side, it's like 2 pigs. Bella isn't exactly the same on both sides either but she isn't like 2 pigs like Bianka is.

Coronets are what I've heard. Very socially engaged, friendly, active. She chit chats and zooms or popcorns more than Bella. But what's interesting is even though they can't see each other, they are only a couple feet away and they are aware of each other. If one sees the other is getting something, the other is waiting to be next. No vocalizing necessary.

I also talk to them like babies. Unless you are upset at them, I don't know who doesn't talk to pets like they are young kids.

Haha! My dad is the same way about my pigs, I have at least 5 different nicknames for each one, and about ten nicknames for my dog. XD

Of course it's up to you, introductions can be stressful. But as far as age goes there's no reason why they can't be buddies!
