Well, this is fancy isn’t it?
This is my very first blog post!
My guinea pigs, Caramel and Nutmeg live in their spacious hutch outside, and they have a run in the garden that they spend at least 2 hours in every day, for grass and a run-about.
I have had my guineas for just under two months now.
Caramel and Nutmeg came from Pets at Home and they were very tiny and scared when I first opened the little boxes they traveled in.
Once I put them inside their new home, I let them settle in for 24 hours. This is to help them to cope with the sudden change of surroundings and the lesser number of guinea pigs. (They were from a group of about 6 piggies in the shop)
I also didn’t feed them any fresh veggies for a few days to help settle their tummies after the journey. Keeping them on the food they were originally on also helped, as it was familiar to them.
Caramel and Nutmeg have a healthy supply of Timothy Hay, food pellets and water.
I also give them fresh veggies twice a day and fruit once a week.
Until next time,
