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 ...

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.

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!

Is a male guinea pig or a female guinea pig frendlier?

If you mean to humans I would say it depends on the individual guinea pig. Either can be very sweet and friendly (I know from experience).If you mean with other guinea pigs females definitely females. The exceptions are if you have a male and a female that are both fixed then they can become good friends and some books say you can keep two males together if they are brothers (that have been together since they were born) but I would say that is a little risky because there is more chance they will not get along.AnswerFor pets, female guinea pigs are best. They can be kept in groups where as some people have trouble keeping a number of male guinea pigs together. Having female guinea pigs also removes the likely hood of you having to deal with impacted rectums which are common in male guinea pigs. Although, Male Guinea Pigs tend to be more affectionate towards the owner, once two male guinea pigs are put together it may take a while for them to get used to one other, but once they do, they are very friendly. They are happiest in pairs.In a pet shop I went to get my two guinea pigs, Gillespie and Google, both Males, there was a notice above the Guinea Pig pen that read 'Please note that Male Guinea Pigs tend to be friendlier than Female'I would describe a Guinea Pig as "a fat hamster with a slightly longer face" and you could add that the mouth us much lower then what you think. (i'm looking at 2 of them right now) they itch like dogs sometimes and are persistent. they have a tail about 3cm long or shorter you can barley see it. i love them.
