We discovered that one of our "female" guinea pigs was actually a male a few months back and rehomed him on this site to a fantastic owner. Unfortunately, that wasn't the end of his story.
On June 18th, four little ones were born to our dear Pumpkin. We decided right away that we'd keep any females that were in the bunch and rehome the males. I diligently sexed the babies daily, determined to prevent any mistakes. It turns out that 3 of the 4 are male.
We wanted the father's owners (who we've kept in contact with) to have the opportunity to choose a baby to be his new cagemate so the black and brown one has been reserved for them. That leaves these two little guys who happen to be both the largest and smallest of the group. The bigger one is white with black and light tan markings around his head (and some wisps of white around his eyes) while the little one is white and brown.
They will be ready to go the week of July 9th since that is the 3 week mark from their date of birth. They definitely need to go because they are already rumblestrutting around the two female adults and that's making me very nervous...and I'm sure they're not liking it very much either!
Sorry, NO. Please do not contact the owner and ask about shipping guinea pigs. It is NOT possible. Please look for guinea pigs LOCAL to you! That's what this site is for--helping you find a guinea pig close to home to adopt and love.
Yes, that one is adorable and looks just like the one you must have for your very important reason or you will not be able to go on living. But, there are many more in your area that are just as wonderful. Perhaps they are not listed here, but they can be found. The piggy in need waiting for you near your own back yard might look a little different, but could melt your heart anyway!
