I believe they can =D They are intelligent little creatures

[EDiT] I was looking for a link to verify my theory that they absolutely can,but...it varies...

"Many people want to know if it is possible to litter train a guinea pig. We wish we could offer a resounding, "Yes!" However, with guinea pigs, the degree of success of litter training varies greatly. Some can be litter trained. Others simply cannot. But there is a degree of success that you might be able to achieve. And your degree will vary. You should have the right expectations going into a "training" exercise. First, don't expect miracles overnight. Second, while you may be able get guinea pigs to urinate in an area that you designate, it is usually much more difficult to control the "bean" (or poop) location (the bean drop zone). The good news is, the beans are relatively easy to pick up or clean up, although they look messy. Also, even if you can get the urination to occur in one place, there may be the occasional accident."

Pigs poop and pee most where they eat. So if you can put a cat litter box under the hay rack, they will most likely use the bathroom there. My pigs also have a favorite corner to poo in, so I have one of those corner litter boxes there. Sometimes they use it, but most of the time they go to a corner without it, lol. There are always going to be random poos, no matter what. Good luck.

I have noticed a lot of poo in the corner where smores sits. He is such a timid little guy that he is usually in the same corner. I have also noticed some poos near their food dish. Although when I let them out for floor time they haven't had any accidents. Opie typically goes right into the the bunnies litter boxes where I keep their hay and munches away. Smores hides so I hold and cuddle him. They are very sweet ans well behaved house guests.
