My guinea pigs fighting
(Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)
I am going to keep two baby male guinea pigs together and I am worried they might fight a lot.
They are from different litters but are related.
They have met before but one of the male's mother started chasing the other male from the other litter around the hutch, head butting him.
Will the male follow his mother and hurt the other guinea pig?Brankica:
I am guessing you plan to keep those two males with the mother?
If so, I am not sure it will work, since she is attacking him.
If you want to keep just the two males, separate the attacked one from the others and after you remove the mother, put those two males together.
The little son won't have the opportunity to pick up the bad behavior and usually two males will get along just fine.
Keeping those two little ones with the mother might not work, because she will hurt him if she keep attacking him.
Hope this answers your question, if not please comment with additional questions/info or contact me
