Your young pig should be getting an alfalfa hay until he is six months old. Then timothy for the rest of his life.

Hay is very important for a guinea pig, it is a staple in their diet, and they need unlimited amounts.

They should actually have access to fresh grass hay, like timothy, at all times. You may also supplement a young pig with alfalfa hay, but if you are feeding a quality pellet such as Oxbow Cavy Performance, you do not need to give the alfalfa hay. So, you are fine to give your baby timothy, but I recommend feeding Cavy Performance pellets.

I feed mine Cavy Performance and they have unlimited amounts of Timothy hay (as in I never let it run out) My youngest is also 7 weeks.
