Yes! Guinea pigs have been known to learn their names, sweak when they hear a sertain noise, and some even use litter boxes. Some guinea pigs can't be litter boxed trained so don't get mad. Guinea pigs can be trained to do so many things! There are more out there so don't be affraid to try new things! Just remember they are not like dogs, so don't punish them if they don't do what you…
Guinea pigs are capable of recognizing their caretakers and recognizing familiar guinea pigs. Some guinea pigs will nibble the fingers and toes of their caretakers or even lick them. They will cuddle up to you to stay warm or feel safe. Guinea pigs are definitely affectionate towards their caretakers buy doing tricks, giving kisses, and cuddling.
Can guinea pigs live in an aviary with cockatiels budgies and quail and will wild mice hurt the guinea pig?
No, guinea pigs are not really pigs... they are rodents. Tsk tsk to the answer above! Guinea pigs are not considered rodents, either! They are really in their own little category ;] Some say they are closest related to chinchillas! How cute! No they're not really pigs, they ARE part of the rodent family and so are Chinchillas!
I feed my guinea pigs some,but not that much one leaf a week is okay.If you have kale only one leaf of that because it has calcium and too much of that is bad for guinea pigs. And do not give them iceberg lettuce.Here is a link to a list of good food for guinea pigs.Two years of raising guinea pigs.
Their are some food that can be fed to guinea pigs as well as other animals , yes. But it isn't recommended that people feed foods that are not made for guinea pigs to guinea pig , So I would suggest buying pellets (food) specified for guinea pigs with no seeds in them (some companies put seeds in and make a mix but seeds are known for not being very good for guinea pigs.)
