um well no. it should be ok. i have a 6month old girl and a 4year old boy guinea pig and we are going to mate them. yes it's ok. make sure the female is under 10mnths old if youre mating her for the first time as the first litter has to be before then or there will be big difficultys at birth where her birth canel has developed and the babies will get stuck which will result in there death and maybe the mothers. girls fight together so prob not good idea!!

Would a 4 months old male guinea pig that you have owned for a month fight with another male guinea pig if you bought one?

Well actually yes, they might fight. Males guinea pig's in general tend to fight with another therefor, it is a better idea to have two females or a male and a female together. But some males can get along, but usually males tend to fight.

Can you buy another guinea pig then add a new one at age 1?

There is usually no problem with adding a new guinea pig even if you already have one. The best combination is to have a female, then introduce a new female. It isn't a good idea to introduce a new guinea pig if you have a male, unless you bring in a female because you want them to breed. If you must add a new male, try wshing it first to remove all old traces of its previous companions, as male guinea pigs are a lot more territorial than females.

What is the best companion for a guenia pig?

Another guinea pig of the same gender. Guinea pigs are social creatures that get lonley if kept on their own.

You can of course keep two or more guinea pigs of the opposite gender but unless you want baby piggies it's not a good idea. Hope it helped.

How much should a female guinea pig weigh?

Are male guinea pigs fiercer than female guinea pigs?

Male guinea pigs are just as friendly as female guinea pigs, but two male guinea pigs together can become extremely aggressive and fight. Two males can get along in the same cage, but the owner must make sure that they have plenty of space and follow's guidelines for introducing new guinea pigs.Guinea pigs are social animals, so keeping one alone isn't a good idea. Keeping a male and a female together will result in the female becoming impregnated. So, if you want a male pig, see if you can adopt a bonded pair (aka already gets along).

What kind of guinea pig is better male or female?

Well, it really depends, see, if you are planning on getting two guinea pig's it's not the best idea to get two males.. They tend to fight. So if you are planning on getting two guinea pig's I suggest that you get either two females or a female and a male. But, if you get a male and a female , they can have baby's but females usually only have baby's after about 4months of age. But if you are planning on getting just one guinea pig, both males and females are great!

well i think its ok for them to have sex because me and my older brother did and if humans can why not guinea pigs Yes... but is it a good idea to let them?

Are guinea pigs lonely?

Sometimes when you buy a guinea pig and you can't spend much time with it they can get lonely, so if you can't spend much time with your guinea pig, then it would be a good idea to buy another guinea pig friend. But be careful, sometimes guinea pigs don't like each other and will fight, and if this happens and one of your guinea pigs is not strong enough to fight for itself it could get killed. Be careful!

Is it a bad idea to put a one year old male guinea pig with another young 3-5 months old male guinea pig together in the same cage'?

yes because if you do then the s-5 month old guinea-pig could die because it is not within its age group and the older guinea-pig will pick on the smaller guinea-pig and the older guinea-pig will take advantage of the smaller guinea-pig cause i did that and my younger guinea-pig died a week later so don't do it cause you may be a murderur it not a bad idea at all .... i have 6 guinea pigs and the males r very happy with having a male friend in with them .... The person at the top is young and unsure, yes you can as long as there is enough space for the guinea pigs to have their own territory. Look up CC cages.

Can one male guinea pig and two female guinea pigs live with each other?

Not unless you want baby guinea pigs haha! I myself have two female guinea pigs that live together and was wanting to obtain a male guinea pig a few months ago as well, I checked with a few different pet stores and they said it is a really bad idea since guinea pigs can have a litter with up to 10 pups in it, and unless you can keep all the pups every time your guinea pigs breed you will most likely have a hard time finding a home for them, so overall I wouldn't suggest it but you can keep the male in a different cage and under supervision by yourself let them play together to watch and make sure they do not breed.

How often are guinea pigs active?

Guinea Pigs are very active if they are happy and a big part of your life. I get my guinea pigs out every other day so they can runaround in the back yard (if you do this make sure your grass does not have chemicals on it, chemicals can kill your guinea pig.) It is a good idea to get two guinea pigs because they are social animals. If you have two guinea pigs they will be happier and more active because they are never bored. It is a good idea if you feed your guinea pigs spinage and carrots as treats If you do all that you will have very happy and active guinea pigs.
