2 pregnant piggy's

Well i got 3 guinea pigs over a month ago and well one turned out to be a boy the 2 girls seem pregnant there only 10 weeks bless them i feel its all my fault as i though only girl guinea pigs have teats.

Well what im wanting to no is there any good vegetables ir pellets that i could feed to them during pregnancy?

They always get a hand full of veg each, each day and plenty of hay - in hay rack and for bedding and im feeding them on gerty guinea pig mixture.

They need to be being fed alfalfa hay in addition to the timothy now that they're pregnant, and they'll need the extra calcium. I'd also recommend against feeding any pigs Gerty Guinea Pig, as it's full of seeds and other choking hazards. Pig pellet should be plain, only pellets, with no seeds, colored bits, etc.

Make sure they're getting 1 cup of fresh vegetables per pig per day. Also line up a good exotics veterinarian, as if they need a c-section or something goes wrong, you've got a very short time period to get them medical care before there are problems.
