If you already have a female guinea pig she should share with anouther female. If you have a male he should not share with any other guinea pigs because most male guinea pigs don't like other males if they aren't together from birth and a female guinea pig would get pregnant. it is possable to add male and female together but only if you are willing to take the male to get the chop >.< if u want your female to have a friend yes add a female friend if its a boy then add a younger male making sure befor u add the new male that the cage or hutch has been freshly cleaned out ....good space and always plenty of food and water ....also a male may fight with anther male if they can smell a female around ...

What do you do when a guinea pig is pregnant?

hi there I'm Chloe Brooks and i own a guinea pig farm so i will tell you what to do if your pregnant female guinea pig is with other female (not pregnant) guinea pigs then its fine and she can give birth to the babies with the other guinea pigs if your pregnant female guinea pig is by her self then she will be fine to give birth to her babies if your pregnant female guinea pig is with a male(s) guinea pig then its best to separate her 2 weeks before her babies are due as female guinea pigs can become dominant and aggressive towards males when there pregnant I hope that your guinea pig will have lovely babies good luck for you and your guinea pig! greets Chloe Brooks

DEAR VIEWER,IT MAY BE BEST TO SEPARATE YOUR MALE AND FEMALE GUINEA PIGS. UNLESS YOU WOULD LIKE ABOUT 10 MORE GUINEA PIGS.MY DESISON WOUL BE TO SEPARATE THEM :DYOUR WRIGHTER,JENNAELLIOTTthe male can also be dangerous to the mother of little pups, due to its urge to have back to back breeding . the mother will not be able to handle it and may die. males can also be territorial and kill other guinea pigs or baby guinea pigs

Why would a young guinea pig die suddenly?

Main reason for young guinea pigs (only for female guinea pigs)to get killed is by getting pregnant too early because these piggies get mature very young(2-3 months-someone please confirm) but their body functions will not be mature by this stage. best way to get rid of this is by separating male and female pigs.
