Yes. If you are ready to have babies. they should be separated. And there is a likely chance that the mother will die because it depends on the age. They shouldn't be having babies if they are over 8 months old. I would keep mine separate. I lost my Mother guinea pig): I would reccomend you have two females in one cage or 2 males. Same gender. And it is true they live happier with mates(friends) they can also be put in cages with bunnies. I would go same gender if I was you(:. Have a wonderful time with your guinea pigs(:

A male guinea pig can impregnate a female when it's only two months old. It should be separated from its mother and sisters by six weeks.

the male of course has a dick and the female has a vagina.

A male has a weenie at the the bottom, but the female doesn't.

No! It is not possible without a male Guinea Pig.

Your female guinea pig may be pregnant, or the male thinks she is pregnant. This is often i sign of cleansing.

it really depends on the guinea pig, some get along fine with friends some don't

Is it better to have a male guinea pig with another male guinea pig or a female with a male? It is better to have two female Guinea Pigs, than they won't fight and reproduce. If you have a male and a female they will have baby guinea pigs and you will have to many to look after. Guinea pigs need a lot of space to move around. If you have two males they will fight and hurt each other. (most likely)

Typically no. In fact the opposite may occur. Usually the female at this point will not want the male anywhere near her and at times will attack the male. Also When You Think That Your Guinea Pig is over halfway through pregnancy you should separate the male Guinea Pig from The Female Because The male Might Squish the babys good luck!

you shoudl not put a hamster and a guinea pig in the same cage no matter what.

The male guinea pig is called a boar and the female is a sow because of their name "pig", even though they're not pigs. A male pig is a boar and a female pig is a sow, so the guinea-pigs have been named after them.

because the male will mate and the female commonly does not like it because it results in pregnancies

No. There must be a male and a female for the guinea pigs to have offspring.

How do you tell the difference between a male and female guinea pig

it depends what type of guinea pig you have

depends if its a male or female. if its male, 1.5-2.0 lbs. if its a female it should weigh 1.0-1.5 lbs. my guinea pig weighs 3 lbs, and its female :)

No! The male guinea pig should be in separate cage IF the babies are still young or a week of age because the male might rape the female baby guinea pig...and it might cause for the early death of the of the baby guinea pig...

You should keep males housed seperatly. The female may not want to breed. She may not be ready to breed yet. The fighting indicates the female is not happy with the male.

I have a female guinea pig and she weighs 2 pounds 2 ounces (its how much a male should weigh) a female should really be 1 pound 15 ounces, but my vet says to let your guinea pig be a little fatter than they should be because a chubby guinea pig is a happy guinea pig! Hope that helps :)

a female Guinea pig should weigh1poundmale should weigh a pound and a halfwell that's what i think

Keep them with a male guinea pig. Be careful because sometime the male with harrass the female.

Guinea pigs are like people. Some will fight but most don't. I have one female guinea pig that will fight with any male guinea pig and another female that will not fight. But unless you want a pregnant guinea pig I suggest you don't mix them.
