    Guinea Pig Breeding tips and advice?

    My parents used to breed guinea pigs. First of all, its preferable to have them give birth before 6 months (pregnant at roughly 12 weeks, then 9 weeks to give birth. This will stretch their pelvis before it hardens between 6 to 8 months in females). They can give birth after that but the pelvis...

    It'd be pretty hard I'd imagine but it might work on calmer does. :lol:

    Thanks for rounding out my answer :oops: , I forgot to mention letting them nurse first. But if their mouths are barely big enough to nurse, even supplementing them once a day either by milking your doe and giving them the milk through a syringe or dropper or using homers formula should...

    :idea: Oh goodness, getting lost is fun. I could never live in America because I've been spoilt by Ireland's clean air and gorgeous scenery, I'm content where I am. :lol:

    At least we finally have motorways that can fit one American car in each direction now! :lol: Also, Ireland is a gorgeous place to drive around, the back roads are gorgeous and scenic!

    I have no experience in breeding rabbits but I have been researching it extensively. Have you tried using a small 1ml needle less syringe? I have used them to feed a lethal white guinea pig back to health as she didn't really know what food was. It was a super tiny tip that was easy to put in...

    Yeah, we also don't have as many predators and good organic meat is usually cheaper than in America because Ireland is heavily underpopulated and we have lots of agricultural background. We're about half the size of the UK with only 4.5 million people compared to their 60+ million. We have a lot...

    urine smell

    I've heard that peat moss, limestone from your local gardening centre or worms to till and help break down the soil, urine and poop is quite effective. I've never tried these methods myself(except for the worms) but according to members of RT it works quite well. Personally I've had worms in our...

    I am glad that we think alike, even though we are in different circumstances. I think we'll be great friends :). I'm going to read that thread about David's herd now :)

    My hope is to one day have a homestead. I live in Ireland so land isn't hard to come by, it's just the money I need. I'm young still and the world is my oyster, I just need some time to start exercising and start my own business!

    Guinea pig Care

    I think my brother finds it bizarre because I love animals so much yet I talk about how much I want to raise, kill and eat rabbits to lessen my reliance on factory farming. I may be an omnivore who can't give up meat but that doesn't mean I can't be a smart omnivore and make sure at least some...
