I don't own any, but I actually know someone who is a renowned breeder of Silkies, Coronets and Americans. She recently gave away all of her guinea pigs because she got married and is now pregnant. Doesn't have time to take care of all 50 pigs!

Edit: I would have LOVED to get one of her G&CC pigs - they were AWESOME. Top of the line guinea pigs.

Yep - I can definitely help you with some stuff if you need! She fed her pigs some of the top hay/GP feed. I can ask her for more deets if you want!

I went with my BF to adopt Guinea Pigs from the shelter and ended up with 3 but unfortunately 5 months after we adopted Noboz, we put her to sleep after she was not recovering from some medical issues.

But here is Toadie (full name: Toadwart) and Asher (the grey). They are approximately 5 yrs. old I believe.

They live in the same cage but are separated from each other.

How old is a cavvy's life time? I heard that it was 5 years old.

can you only keep males together? And how do you stop the females from nipping constantly?

Yea same here! Only difference is, (as i explained up there ^) i have three technically. Has he ever kept them together? If so what are the genders and how?

Well The other two Piggy's names are Hogarth, and Matilda from the movie matilda and hogarth or "Hoggie" is from the iron giant, if anyone knows that movie:)...


But here are the pictures of them two:) I could have sworn hoggie was posing for the camera:P

That one is Matilda or mattie for short---->

And last but not least the crazy haired hoggie!:

I love GPs so so much. I had one as a child, Buddy. He was a black angora, my best friend. Sadly, his home was a 10g tank :( Knowing what I know today, I feel horrible. We have pet rats in a 5ft tall $500 cage, so GP is not something we can have. I am sure the fiance will talk me into it when the kids are older :) Thanks for sharing guys!
