Brr - Don't forget your Guinea Pig

By now it is getting cold again. The Eglu is well insulated, and if it is also packed with hay, your guinea pigs will be cosy. However, if it gets really cold, you may want to bring them indoors. There will be less grass around, so it's back to the supermarket again! Guinea pigs should not be put out on frosty grass, as this will cause digestive upsets (similarly, salad should not be fed directly from the fridge).

winter eglu
Guinea pigs will likely go out less during the winter, but it's nice to give them the option - we all need daylight! Weather permitting, it may be a good idea to open the Eglu door in the morning, and close it at night

Remember that the drinking water may freeze, and need to be replaced more often. It is often easier to have two bottles, and rotate them, bringing a fresh one from indoors each time, rather than having to crack the ice each time. It may be worth considering adding some extra vitamin C to their drinking water at this time, either in the form of sugar-free ribena, or as soluble vitamin C tablets.
