You guys! This is 3 years old I Think her guinea pig already had their babies because this is 3 years old. The baby guineas that this person's guinea had have already grown into adult guineas.I so want a guinea pig! But you should separate the male because it usually will eat the young and the female guinea pig will eat them only if there is too many or they are not healthy!
I have a male and a female should I put them in the same cage they are 6 weeks old.
My family has 3 guinea pigs, well, that was until one of them had three babies. I know which one had the babies, but now another guinea pig had two babies and I don't know which ones the mother. I separated the babies from the two but I don't know if the babies will die without their mother. How can I find out which one is the mother and how do I save the two babies?
I have one male guinea pig, and i am planning on getting another male one. I am woried if i put the other male one in the cage they will fight. What do u think I should do?
YES! and do not touch the babies for 2 weeks. remove from mom at 1 month or you will get more babies. also if you put the male back just know that the female can get pregnant at just 1 hour after giving birth. and the babies can start to get pregnant after 2 months. i use to breed them so if you need to know anything more write me at tlcdsfit AT yahoo.com i am a bird, rodent and reptile expert and i run a rescue for them too. darcey
You will definitely want to take the male out. This isn't so much for the safety of the babies as for their welfare. The male and female may be agressive to one another with baby pigs around and it will just add a lot of stress and danger to their environment. Everyone will be happier if you keep them seperated.
I have a mom and son guinea pig who had babies, both babies died. We didn't separate mom and dad (I thought we had a few weeks before mom could get pregnant again and they seemed so sad after loosing the babies.) Now I have read that they can get pregnant right away. They are so loving together. I hate to separate them if she is pregnant already. It has been a week since she gave birth. I am not sure what to do. Should I keep them happy and together, they snuggle all day. Can I tell if she is pregnant? Neither one seems to be eating much; how can I help them?
Guinea pigs are essentially rodents, please don't breed them!
