Your guinea pig just had babies and you touched them will she abandon them?
no, unlike hamsters guinea pigs will happily let you touch or handle her babies, if the babies do not get distressed and you are very quiet you can hold them. you can even put another older female in with the mother and the female will help out and the mother can rest. if you give them some soft vegetables or bread and milk the babies will even take a nibble sometimes, they are very well developed. i know i used to breed guinea pigs
No, she won't. Unlike some other animals guinea pigs are quite happy to let you touch & play with the babies after she has cleaned them up after birth. It's actually a good idea to do this & handle them every day to get them used to people.
I have heard that if the babies get the smell of human on them then the mother won't touch it. ANSWER i touched my babies when they were about a day old which i shouldn't have and she didnt reject them but just don't take them away from the mother or pick them up try avoid to touch them because i do think the mother does abandon her babies in some cases of this happening
yes a guinea pig can have two babies if the conditions are correct and the fertilization is proper
I accidentally touched a nest of baby house mice their not tame so should I be worried that the mother will kill them you just dont want anything to happen to them what should i do?
The mother mouse will not kill the babies, or abandon them. She might kill them if you had touched them before they were about three or four days old. However, that is most likely to happen if you had disturbed the babies and the mouse a whole lot. Either way, leave the mice alone, but after three days, you can touch and hold the babies without worry that the mother will kill them.
I would not recommend it. Just have the Mother Guinea Pig in with her babies separately. Sometimes the other guinea pigs can get excited and accidentally stomp the babies to death so best to keep Mom & babies separate.
when my guinea pig had babies i held her and she was fine
yes and no, a guinea pig can not feed it's babies with two teats, but only if it has more than two babies.
when they get fat u feal babies in it and they just lie there
Yeah, it is. Guinea pigs typically have 2 to 8 babies. Mine just had 1... I can't imagine having a whole herd...
Yes, in just a few hours after birth, a guinea pig is able to become pregnant again.
Guinea Pigs don't make nest and their babies are fully developed.They usually give birth in their cages and the babies stands in his own feet just after a minute.
That is impossible. Guinea pigs need a male to have babies just like humans you can not put to girls together and boom you have a baby you have to have a female and a male to produce a baby.
Just let them do it themselves they will have babies and mate if they want to but you should not force them to have babies because 90 percent of female guinea pigs don't live through having babies mine had 2 females and she lived through it hope this helps! They really just mate how people do.
it just pushed a bunch of babies out an 8th of its size.give it a couple days and it will be fine
Just leave them alone and let nature do what it does. messing with the babies will cause the mother to abandon them.
The maximum is 8 and below.
My guinea pig had babies once and they seemed to begin running after just a few hours. I'm not sure if this happens with all guinea pigs, though.
When my female had her babies, a couple hours later i cleaned up the bloody bedding and that was it. I had cleaned out the cage when I anticipated she was in labor and a couple hours later she had the babies. Congrats on the new addition to your family.
Only slightly, think about how small the babies are and adjust your feed to how much the guinea pig wants. Basically just see how the guinea pig acts.
no thats just dumb but some animals dont love their babies isnt that sad?
Yes course you can! Just dont put boys and girls together!
Their pelvic area will be separated just a week before they give birth.
well , it depends how ld they are, if they areunder 2 weeks, its slightlyriskey,if they are under 11 days, it is relly risky as the consiquences may be deat or the mother might abandon them :( also it depends on how far, if its abroad, definatly not, if it is just 2 hour drive then maybe so, but make sure they have homecomforts,plenty of food and lots of hay x hope this helps x
i think its about 3 months. or 21 days. just keep him away from the mother and the babies so he wont impregnate her.
Is a female guinea pig pregnant if she looks big and pear shaped and we have a nonfixed male but they haven't been in contact with each other?
My guinea pig had babies. She was in a cage with another female. She came from the store pregnant. She became quite large in the back. Most of the time if the guinea pig is pregnant you can lightly squeeze her sides. There then should be some small kicking or other movements. ---- That seems a bit normal though, my female guinea pig looks a bit like a pear too. But just to be safe… Read More
2 female because a boy and girl will just have babies, because they can at 3 months old. And a lot of times the babies that they produce will just eat eachother.
Don't touch the babies until they are at least one week old. Feed the mum 2 bowls of food. Don't make to much noise around the cage or hutch and dont put your hand into the cage/hutch. if you do not do these things the the babies are likely to die or the mam is likely to abandon her babies.
I have just found out that one of my guinea pigs is pregnant we thought she was just fat but last night we saw the babies moving around in her belly.but not sure how far gone she is.?
Once you can see movement of the babies, there isn't much waiting left. It is hard to know when a guinea pig is pregnant. It only takes about 2 months gestation.
you can hold them at about 1 hour hold with my guinea pig babies i just hold them straight away but i would wait for abut 1 hour for the sow and her babies to bond
You can touch a newborn Guinea pig just after a hour.This will tame the newborn Guinea pig quickly,but don't touch your newborn Guinea pig too much.This will cause stress to the baby and it may affect the babies health.
How Terrible!! =[ If there are any other nursing guinea pigs around, they will nurse babies that they did not give birth to. Whenever something like this happens, you need to find a really good pet store and veterinarian places to provide nutriton to the babies. Whenever my guinea pigs have babies and find out something like this happened to somebody, I myself would take care of the babies that lost their mother and then… Read More
Yes, They can. I fed my guineas watermelon, and the babies turned out just fine, as well as the momma
You should clean the cage 24 hours the last baby.
Yes, for the most part at least. If she's not sitting on top of the babies at all, then she might be trying to abandon the pups. Worst case scenario, you can just confine her to a small cage with the pups.
It is not strange for a guinea pig to have one baby. Guinea pigs can have 1-8 babies, and it isn't bad for them to only have one baby. It only means that when the male mated with the female, he fertilized one egg, not, for example, four! Don't worry, just enjoy your gorgeous baby!
Not too much bigger than they normally are, their sides just bulge out and sometimes you can feel the babies kicking.
you will just have to wait till the babies are born or find a vet how is willing to do a sonogram.but it will be outragious. to me i'd just wait till she has them.
I bathed my g-pig probably 6hrs after birth and she was fine, she was just got stressed if she couldn't see her babies
Yes, your guinea pig will eat her baby if she hasn't been feed for a long time. She will eat it just to survive. Just don't put the male (boar) guinea pig in with the babies. He will eat them. yes, sometimes out of stress, but it can also be due to human intervention. feed them regularly and do not touch the offspring...
2 girls as 2 boys will fight over who is the boss a boy and a girl will just have babies and 2 girls wil get on together and occasionaly play it together
Maybe it is just sensitive there or maybe it has been injured or maybe it is pregnant. You would have to find more evidence to be sure of any of the above
She may be feeling threatened and she may want her own place to have her babies by herself. When my guinea pigs are pregnant, I separate them from all other guinea pigs. That way they can settle down and relax - not get uptight about frustrating companions :) Maybe just separate your male and female!!!
it may be because of your guinea pigs diet but it can be a lot of things like if it is ill its poo may be hard and big cheak your guinea pigs poo when you clean it out and make sure it looks ok and if your guinea pig is pregnant or has recently had babies it will just be that
Yes! Female guinea pigs have two uterus's which means it is quite possible for her to get pregnant again within hours of giving birth which from a welfare point of view is neither good for the female guinea or her babies. I dont think so because its his kids and there like humans just furry and small and they dont like to be took away from family trust me ive tried i had scratches and… Read More
Whatever you do don't touch it the mother will abandon it. If you need to pick it up pick it up with a cloth. If they are really small cover the cage with blankets so they don't fall out of the cage. (Some cages have a wire mesh area in it). Treat them just like the mother guinea pig and the mom will do the rest. Put a bit more food in the cage than… Read More
Nothing will happen. Trust me. When people say that if you touch a nest full of baby birds the mother will abandon it, its not true. Some people believe that or parents just say that to little kids to keep them from touching it. Mother birds will NOT abandon their young if you touch or even handle the chick. I know first hand because as a teen I wanted to become a vet and I… Read More
Well, you'll just need to take care of them. After birth guinea pigs are mostly independent (Though they still drink milk from mother) so they can eat mostly the same things your guinea pig eats (With the addition of some alfalfa while they are babys)
it doesn't matter really... just as long as you only have i male in the cage and he's already there when they're born. Females actually help look after the babies.
Yes just when ever one is ready to mate it will fight with the other, also when it is pregnant and has babies it must be separate
easy they both are mammals and have babies in human or guinea pig form instead of eggs and they both are very intelligent species of the world by the way anyone is free to add more to the answer. this is just all i know ;D
