New Vegetable Eaters

We had a Blessed Event this weekend! Our new guinea pig Trousers came pre-pollinated. She had 5 baby piglets about 3am Saturday - a normal pig litter is 2 or 3. Mom and babies are doing well!

It's amazing how advanced baby guinea pigs are at birth. These are newborns, only about 10 hours old and barely dry behind the ears.

They all live in my bedroom. Where they oink a lot.

Three little piggies went off

Three little piggies went off to market... We kept the grey-brown boys, and the mom. Within a few days, the little white girl piglet had already been adopted. I hope the two tricolor boys are adopted together - it's not easy to get boy piggies who can co-habitate well with another pig, and they're social animals.

Guinea piglets growing fast!

Guinea piglets growing fast! Here are some 1-week and 2-week pictures. At the ripe old age of 2 weeks, they no longer quite fit into the food bowls (their first forays fit 3 piglets per bowl). The boys are already practicing up on mating behaviors. They're supposed to be old enough to leave their Mom at 4 weeks. I'm thinking this is mostly human sentimentality. Though they do nurse sometimes.
