    Nichole's guinea pig gave birth this morning to 3 babies.:D

    Now I admit.......I was a bit surprised. We knew they'd be born with fur/eyes open/able to eat along side of nursing from Mom. But what we didn't realize is how BIG they'd be! OMG they are nearly as big as Mom Lucy was when we got her!

    Here are some pics of the newborns :




    All already have good loving homes with a 4 H group of kids as soon as they're weaned in a few weeks. Daddy already has gone on to his new home.

    Side note: I think this is the last time Nichole will rely on a store employee swearing they can sex a rodent. :rofl: Daddy "Ricky" was supposed to have been female.:faint:

    I love that last one! Yep, I had forgotten but they are born "done". My uncle and his wife had some and ended up with close to 20 before they had some sort of piggie epidemic that wiped out most of them.

    Oh and when you pet them? If they are enjoying it....they tribble. Swear to God.

    Wow! I had no idea they were born so fully-developed! They look like little beanie babies! Too bad I am soooooo allergic to them. Can't even be in the same room without reacting :(

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh. See these are baby animals. Just as bad if not worse than baby humans. And I am tackling mustang and jumping over star to get that panda looking one.

    The panda looking one is awful dang cute isn't he?? lol :D Aw heck, they all are.

    But no use fighting over them. They already have homes. Thank goodness!! It was getting a bit whiff with just 2 piggies in Nichole's room.......I could only imagine with more. Nichole is under orders to clean the cage at least once a day. Every other day isn't going to cut it with 3 of them in there. phew!

    Awww...I have to send this link to my daughter. She's a piggie owner and lover. She'd probably take all of them.

    Aw, so cute!
    Do they have a 6-wk weaning period like dogs and cats? (I am totally guinea pig illiterate.)

    Terry it's 3 wks weaning, because at 4wks any males in the litter can get Mom preggers again.

    We were piggie illerate too, until Nichole looked up info on the net and the 4 H Mom got in touch with us. She's done guinea pigs as projects for years now.
