Mom is a PEW (pink eyed white (no such thing as albinos in guinea pigs)), Sam is a red and white, and Lesley is golden agouti, red and white.

At 3 weeks males should be seperated from mom and sisters as there is a chance of them impregnating them.

Potty training, possibly, i've heard of people doing it but it is from intensive watching which corner the pig prefers and then putting something there (potty box). They will pee there but poo's go where ever.

Poops!! I took two others out and put them in a gated play area for half an hour. When I checked back there were dozens of little poops all over!! it was like they saved up two day's worth for that moment.

Just three weeks?!? Even Syrian hamsters take almost three months for that to be possible, sexual maturity.

I will try to sex them ASAP. Any hints? They are still about 3/5 the size of mom.

Unless they are both females someone is going to be left alone. I assume an intro of a fourth one will be in order. Any introduction suggestions?

Thanks for any advice. The youngsters are like little Beanie Babies come to life they are so cute and tame! And they smell great.

Yea, the ears are half dark - impossible in a true albino. The mom's name is Jennifer, and very sweet and trusting.

They are not so small now!

I successfully sexed them last night: the youngsters are males and obviously different from their mom. Jennifer is in with Chip, a neutered male (Dutch, I think, black and white) who lost his cagemate, Lily. They are getting along. Looks good. But we mourn Lily.

Sexing was not hard when you know what to look for.

I saw a cute male albino at petco the other day. I just lose a GP though, and I know that albinos are even less harty than regular GPs. I couldn't bare to lose another right now.

They are like any other colored guinea out there. No difference, ask the 5 I have here.

That's what I thought. I didn't think there was a dif. just cause there color is dif. If that was true I feel sorry for all of the albinos out there. ( a lot of rat ones)

You have an odd number. You keep them 2 and 3, or is one alone? I suppose single GPs are a bad idea. So I guess you'd never do that.

Ummm no, I actually have 25 of my own and at the moment 16 in rescue. All differeing colors. My herd has a 3 story condo in my living room (it takes up a quarter of it) and the rescues take up a full room. Then there are my 2 gerbils, 2 hamsters, 2 hedgehogs, 5 cats, 1 husband and 1 stepdaughter. I claim them, I clean them and I feed them.

Wow! You really are "crazy for piggers"! I'm still a novice, only owning piggies since May. It has been heavenly! I had no idea what amazing little critters they are.

crzy4piggers, we want PHOTOS!! Some place you must have! You cover the entire floor of that room in bedding?

BTW, I find Kaytee's Soft-Sorbent the best bedding for GP cages, better than Carefresh.

You do rescues. In NYC, this site has GPs available for adoption. Pass the word to anyone you might know: http://www.scarnyc.org/

Oh no, I do what I can with the space provided, and it's wall to wall cages.

I am listed on Petfinder in MN.
