The Omlet Guinea Pig Guide

Guinea pigs are fun, quirky companions for people of all ages. Though small, these little animals have bags of character and very distinct, individual personalities. If you’re thinking of bringing some guinea pigs into your home, you’ll be rewarded by conversational squeaks, affectionate nuzzling, and the comical sight of your pets devouring hay and vegetables like there’s no tomorrow. If you’re already an owner, then you’ll know firsthand what enjoyable and easy pets they are to look after.

We had four pigs as we call them two male two female but as of tonight we have three more we just had three babies. Our males are now and for ever more housed away from the females but they are the joy of mine and my daughters life they live in doers at night and go out to a nice playpen run and hut during the day. They can be lots of work but the joy we get is so worth it.
