We currently have 6
, mum & daughters came to us when previous owners found out she was pregnant after being told by the pet shop they had 2 girls
Then Xmas day we got another 2 surprises , pretty sure she must have been pregnant AGAIN when they finally handed her over as I certainly had no boys . I am a bit upset tonight as I have sexed the new babies and we have one girl & one boy and I hate the thought of the poor little boy living all on his own so will look in to having him desexed.
Love : Their little squeaky talking , ease of handling , friendliness , watching them run around their pen , they have great little ''characters'' .
Hate : Their cages do get messy quickly
ideally we do a full clean twice a week , it takes approx 2o mins .
We have an outside hutch on the back porch as well as several runs that can be moved around the garden . I tend to put blankets /tarpulin over the cages to protect in the colder/wet weather but have also had Guineas inside in the past .
We also have 2 cats who ''enjoy'' watching the guineas and I have no doubt would go for them if they escaped but they are well protected with lots of hidey places .
We have had loads of Guinea Pigs and they are one of my absolute favorite animals
. In my experience I have found the girls less friendly but tidier , and the boys are very friendly but make more mess.
