We recently took the last 12 guinea pigs from a local backyard breeder who was getting out of the business. We were told that the only 2 males had been separated from the moms and pups, but when I picked up the first male and he was a she, we knew that the pigs had not been sexed properly, and it is likely that all of the females of bearing age are pregnant.
After bringing them home and assessing them, they all appear to be healthy. There are 7 males and 5 females.
Please contact us if you are interested in fostering or adopting some of these delightful guinea pigs.
