*sigh* whats the gestation time for piggies? I got a girl tonight from someone who didn't want her anymore and I'm afraid she was housed with some boy piggers. So now I'm on pregnancy watch. Heres hoping she's not :sarcastic

I am so out of the loop having been in exacuation mode for so long. I knew you were fostering GPs but didn't know you kept then.Ly&Pigs said:I have two on pregnancy watch myself, Oats and Finna. They are two fosters I took from angelwise but ended up keeping them forever. Still haven't been able to determine if they are or are not pregnant. It's a wait and see situation.
Actually, I think it's more a case of you're more alone here Donnie if what you said is 'true'. 99% of our members are against breeding - read through this site and http://cavyspirit.com/breeding.htm you'll find out exactly why.
I will strongly inform you that this website and forum is VERY any-breeding.Nathan1SuperGuy said:

A classic, and lovable, case of "foster failure".
Good luck ladies on the preggie watch. Hope all goes well.
A few rescues/shelters do foster out pregnant sows, but only to very experienced cavy carers. I personally wouldn't foster a pregnant sow as I don't feel I have experience in that situation, so until I find another rescue to volunteer at and get that experience I'll just stick to any needy pigs!I know this is a strange question, but does anyone ever foster out pregnant piggies? Like from rescues or humane societies?
I know this is a strange question, but does anyone ever foster out pregnant piggies? Like from rescues or humane societies? My kids have been asking what a baby piggie looks like/acts like/wheeks like... and while I would never EVER in a million years breed them, it would be neat to be able to see brand new babies. We would build a 2x3 to put SOMEWHERE to keep the new mama in & we would care for her like she were our own, but I was wondering if this was ever done???
My SPCA fostered out 2 GPs to me because I thought they were pregnant, Luckily, when I took them to my Exotic vet, we found out that they weren't pregnant. They just had fat/flab bulges from age and lack of exercise. However, they were willing to allow me to foster these girls through their pregnancies because I knew more then they did (even then their vet) about GPs, their care, housing and illnesses.homeschoolmama said:I know this is a strange question, but does anyone ever foster out pregnant piggies?
