We will get a couple of guinea pigs on Friday and need some advice on whether to get two girls or two guys.

We now have keep reading the world-wide-web that men might have issues with their bottoms getting affected and needing their anal glands cleaning up (which we have been not thinking about having doing), have actually also read that boys could be more smelly because they have a tendency to mark their terrority their wee smells more powerful, additionally they can fight and attempt to take over one another, but which they also make smarter animals.

We talked about this towards the breeder and stated that individuals were interested in girls but she stated that guys are better animals as girls can bite and start to become grumpy at peak times (PMT like).

Can you aren’t any connection with piggies give me personally some advice please before we get and select some.

Many Many Thanks and sorry when it comes to long post.

We now have 3 females. they’ve been really friendly, lovable piggies. Great pets

We’ve had plenty of guinea pigs over time.

We’d state the males do have a tendency to make their cages a bit messier, though we have never really had some of the other issues you mention, at all. The men, i do believe, are more straightforward to tame while they are usually greedier and lazier.

We have had plenty of girls too and additionally they have actually made pets that are lovely well, but perhaps slightly more inclined to be bitey or skittish. (more…)
