Guinea pigs should not be housed together. Guinea pigs cannot be fed rabbit pellets and vise versa. There are additives to rabbit pellets that are harmful to guinea pigs. Guinea pigs over the age of one should be feed a good timothy hay and timothy-based pellets, not alfalfa hay or pellets. The alfalfa products has too much calcuim for mature guinea pigs. It gives them bladder stones.
They may get along OK together, but I know of many guinea pigs that have been badly injured or killed by a kick from a rabbit. The rabbit is usually just playing, but it has strong legs that can be fatal to guinea pigs.
I, also, know of guinea pigs that were badly injured from a bigger rabbit trying to mate with it.

we bought two guinea pigs named charles and matthew. in the first 3 days matthew died. We bought another matthew and he died in a few hours. we got another matthew and he was bigger than charles and would beat him up. So we took him back and now we have 1.

I bought 2 female guinea pigs recently. I named one Ramona, she is an abbysinian who is black with a white stripe down her back and a brown spot under her chin. I also have an abysinian called Coco who is grey and a few spots of white around her head. A couple days ago Coco got really jumpy and anxious before I left for school one day. That day at lunch my mom came to see me at school and told me that Coco was a mommy!!! Now i have 3 baby guinea pigs, Frankie, Molly, and Tyler!

I recently bought 2 guinea pigs. They were at a pet store and were not taken care of. My mom and I saw them and felt sorry for them. They were matted and smelt awful. We took them home, bathed and trimmed their hair. The female had and infected bottom but the male seemed to be okay. We bought a two story cage for them and they love to run up and down the ramp. they are both Peruvians. Whenever my family and I walk into the room they start squeeling for food. they are huge characters and I would suggest everybody get one. I am now expecting my first litter. The female is black and the male is a roan. We put houses that we made out of cardboard in the cages for the guinea pigs to play in. They run around the house and they like to hide underneath the couch and make us move it to get them out. I think your website is really good.
