Guinea Pig Pregnancy Links

These links are for anyone seeking information about guinea pig pregnancy, birth, post-birth and hand rearing baby guinea pigs. Please note: Jackie's Guinea Piggies would never encourage anyone to breed from their guinea pigs My reason for adding a links page for this particular subject is because I felt it was needed. You may find yourself with an already pregnant sow which can happen if your guinea pig came from a pet shop. You may also have brought home two guinea pigs and was told they are both the same gender, when in fact they weren't.

I have also included links that discourage breeding and I hope you will support Jackie's Guinea Piggies view and not breed from your guinea pig. You only have to read the second link to learn why you shouldn't breed.
