surprised us with a little baby
!! Gender unknown yet, but I will update on the 2nd or 3rd what the gender is...
(excuse technical difficulties for pictures)
And the other one, is the unnamed not-so-furry guy
(yes, a male) who as of the 3rd will become a part of my family
I know people find them ugly but hey... Once I worked with one, I've been wanting one. I just would prefer holding onto money for the vet care than the pet considering here, these guys cost more than the vet does!
1. Honey the 3 month old mama.
2, 3, and 4. The baby! He/she was the size of her tummy for pete sakes...
5, 6, 7. The newcomer
I plan to lay a tarp in the spare room, covering part of the walls as well (about an inch or two up) to keep the carpet clear of pee and poo.
Then laying down homemade carefresh bedding, along with the lovely polar fleece pieces I may make into tunnels and such.
I will also be making a flour and water based paper mache to make smaller tunnels, that will be completely non toxic!
I can get huge amounts of timothy hay, and plan to have the baby with mama unless it happens to be a boy... Then the introduction to the nameless boy will be in need although they'll be living side by side. If they don't get along I'll divide the room into thirds. The corners will have fleece covered cardboard, there will be tons of toys, ramps, etc!!
Half the room will be divided so the male has his own section, and Honey and her baby have theirs. The room, will be their cage!! lol.
For the warm part of spring, before the boiling hot of summer I will be having them outside in the nice green grass (the male in the shade) I will also be gardening... lettuce, carrots, cilantro, parsely...
I'm decking it ALL OUT
for my guineas
This is done on a budget and will be great for ANY small critter owner, all of the ideas are allowed to be used - don't need my permission. Everything, is either cheap, or easily obtained from your garage or household.
