I love Guinea pigs! I am a USDA Licensed small animal Breeder.
I breed Fancy Rats, Fancy Mice, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters and Hedgehogs.
Being a USDA licensed breeder means i am able to sell to pet stores if i want to. It also means i have to pay for a license and get inspected a few times a year.
I also have to have a Vet visit my animals and check their health frequently.
I love setting up private adoptions and find it much more rewarding then selling to pet stores.
With private adoptions i can make sure the piggies are going to a good home and sometimes i get updates, pictures and stories about how they are doing which i find very rewarding.
I have 7 breeding Pairs.
I keep the males in with the female all the time as i think Daddy does a great job at helping raise the babies and it helps makes them friendlier towards other Guinea pigs.
I use Aspen Bedding.
Guinea pigs require large cages so they have room to run around.
Guinea pigs are high maintenance animals and require more cage cleaning then other small animals.
I feed my Guinea pigs Heims Guinea pig food which i buy in bulk directly from the production mill.
Guinea pigs require baths every few months and also will need nail trimming once a month.
If the nails are not kept trimmed they will curl around and can start to grow into the little piggie's feet. Which is painful and can cause infection.
Pig owners should be aware that nail trimming is neccasary and be willing to trim the piggies nails themselves or bring to a Vet or someone able to do the trimming.
Some long haired Guinea pigs -such as Silkies, hair can grow quite long and may drag on the floor of the cage and get tangled and dirty so bathing and or a haircut would be needed from time to time.
Guinea pigs should be fed fresh vegetables such as Collard greens, Romaine Lettace, peas and carrots a few times a week.
They also enjoy Oranges and Dandylions.
They need to be fed Timothy Hay, Alfalfa or a grass product a couple of times a week to help digestion and grind their teeth.
Alfalfa can not be digested as well so should only be fed a couple times a week. (Not daily)
I am located in Chaska, MN and prefer all adopters to come to my location to pick up their animals.
We set up a day and time for you to come take a look and see if you like any piggies and if they like you.
Please bring a box or carrier with you for transporting the piggie.
Most Guinea pigs are $30 per piggie.
Skinny Pigs/Werewolfs are $50 per piggie.
