I got my guinea pig from a pet shop, but they never told me she was pregnant. She is due to have her second litter of pups any day now. I can hardly wait!

I have three guinea pigs, Checkers , Dolly, and Daisy. Daisy is Dolly's baby from her first litter. Her siblings were named Elvis and Brownie. We mistakenly assumed that Checky was a dud, but he wasn't and now Dolly is pregnant again. The pups are due any day now. I can't wait. She is so gorgeous! Wheekers rule!

I just got my Guinea Pig today. He is a male with a dark tan body and black patches, I call him Darth. Darth is my first Guinea Pig so I'm a little foggy as to how to care for him {although I know the basics}. I was wondering if I have to give him baths and if he likes water.

My guinea pig, Krauser, was supposed to be male but ended up having pups. Courtesy of Monroeville Petsmart. I didn't even know until I found one sitting outside of the cage. Be careful, some cages don't have small enough spaces between bars and the babies can get out. Until they are 3 or 4 weeks old they are small enough to get out. Also check the pig yourself before you buy it! I learned that! Push lightly near where their genitals are. Nothing means it's a girl, something pops out means it's a boy.

I have three female guinea pigs and I just want to say that or all the things to chew, my guinea pigs wont. But I have found one thing to solve my problam. The very first time I gave my guinea pigs alfalfa they just chattered at me, so I didn`t give it to them any more. The second time I gave it to them they just ate it before I could say, "I thought you girls didn`t like hay!". And guess what, I started to feed it to them day after day and soon their teeth had shortened, in just about a week.

I have guinea pigs and they are the sweetest animals. Each with their own personality and squeeking noises. One of my males, Magic actually acts like a dog sometimes, throwing his toys around the room and nudging for a nose rub. They love going to Petco in their carry bag and squeek for people to pet them.

The white and brown guinea pig looks exactly like my guinea pig. I think that maybe the guinea pig that is with that mother is my guinea pig. If it is not then I don't really care. I think that my guinea pigs are the most important and wonderful guinea pigs on earth. My other guinea pig is white with a little speck of brown on the top of his head. I got my first guinea pig on January 12 and I got my other guinea pig on January 27. My guinea pigs names are Snickers and Skittles. I love my guinea pigs.
