Guinea Pig Guidance be sure to Girl Or Boy?
We will get a couple of guinea pigs on Friday and desire some advice on whether or not to get two girls or two guys.
We now have continue reading the world-wide-web that males may have difficulties with their bottoms getting affected and needing their anal glands cleansing (which we have been not keen on having to complete), 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 that they’ll fight and attempt to dominate one another, but which they additionally make smarter animals.
We pointed out this towards the breeder and said that individuals were thinking about girls but she stated that men are better animals as girls can bite and get grumpy at times (PMT like).
Can a person with any experience of piggies give me some advice please before we get and select some.
Many Many Many Thanks and sorry for the long post.
We’ve 3 females. they have been extremely friendly, lovable piggies. Great pets
We’ve had lots of guinea pigs through the years.
I would state the guys do have a tendency to make their cages a bit messier, though we have never ever had some of the other issues you mention, at all. The men, i believe, are better to tame while they are generally greedier and lazier.
We have had a lot of girls too and so they have made lovely pets because well, but possibly slightly more inclined to be bitey or skittish. The few more difficult figures we’ve had have all been girls!
Guinea pigs of either sex require a complete large amount of cleaning up – they poo like nothing else in the world!
