I have an albino abyssinain guinea pig named Blizzard. He is about 3 or 4 years old. I have 2 other guinea pigs. They are all in separate cages. No matter what I do Blizzard always messes up his cage long before the others do. I think he is bored and so he plays with his water. The cage always gets really wet. I have replaced the bottle several times. I have tried many different things to keep him content. Is this behavior specific to this breed?

    He sounds quite rambunctious and I'm inclined to think it's just the personality of that guinea pig.

i have 2 Abyssinian guinea pigs and i just got a skinny pig yesterday, i slowly introduce them one by one then all 3 of them were getting along on the couch, playing eating etc. but once i put the skinny in the cage with them then the other 2 seemed to get territorial and aggressive, now i have the cage split in 2 so now they are separated but will they always be aggressive? or will in pass? i don't want to have to keep the skinny piggy separate and alone

    You may have a couple of males. Females almost always get along while males will tend to fight if there is a female around. Males usually get along IF they were raised together, but if there is a female around then they may start squabbling as well. Also, older guinea pigs don't always take to a new comer (especially older males).

    I separate the pig causing commotion and eventually the fighting subsides. I leave the trouble maker by itself for a few days and when the piggie gets ornery I seperate it again. I do this until it learns that it will get along or be lonely.

    if you clean the cage completle and switch everything around it will help them to be less territorial because it no longer has their scent or anything, in a way i guess it almost confuses them

    Hi I have a 3 year old male guinea pig and I have just got 2 baby skinny males, I put them all in a brand new house where there is no scent, and I have not had any problems at all. xx

We got a male abyssinian 9 days ago, he is cute, chutts a lot = their way of talking. He likes to be held and given veggie treat - lettuce, loves cilantro and spinach and carrots. He is kinda messy- trying to train him to use a litter box. Has anyone had any luck with this?

    It is normal just do your daily care and it's fine to just do a spot clean every day or very often.

The first time a sow gives birth, it would be best if she is already four to six months old. That's what I do with my sow. And when she gives birth they're all healthy and strong. http://www.expertguineapigcare.com/guinea-pig-breeding

    Well if u do, guinea pigs are suppose to b kept in pairs or more. They're very social animals and become depressed easily from loneliness. But if u r home and spend a majority of ur time with it I'd recommend a friend. Employees in pets stores may say its ok to keep one but most don't really know what they're talking about. And b sure to give them plenty of space. Food and hay and vedgitbles daily. . And guinea pigs can't store vitamin c so give them orange slices often and u can even buy drops to put in their water. And don't forget lots of love.

When i was about 9 years old, i got a baby female guinea pig. I named her Mollie just for the heck of it. She is an abbi-haired guinea pig. I already had an elderly guinea pig named Gorjet. I got her and rescued her from an irresponsible adult. I am a kid and took better care of her. Then she died and Mollie is about 3-4 years old. Now that mollie needs a friend, I am going to get her two little friends named Spunky and Abbi. She is going to love it. I am even more. If my mom would let me, and we had enough money, I would take every gp in the rescues, shelters, and petshops. When I get older I am going to be a guinea pig breeder, and a darn good one too.
