Breeding Guinea Pigs

It take about 60 -75 days for a guinea pig to have a "pup". They usually have 2-4 but there can be more.

The male will usually kinda circle the female to see if he can woo her.. she goes in heat every 4 days so will automatically "lift" herself to him, if she isn't in heat she will more than likely fight him. Some females.. rarep  as common can get really mean and have nothing to do with it and will attack the male.. but for the most part they usually will just run around the cage and try to get away from him if they aren't in heat.

Guinea pigs may look completely different from their parents or exactly like them ... they draw from all their ancestors. If you are a serious breeder and are hoping to get a Texel piggie for example make sure you do your homework, as breeding can get "tricky" and just because you have a texel doesn't mean she will give you a texel. There are a multitude of different breeds and new breeds, etc.
Guinea pig babies are called "pups" . The pups are born with their eyes open and they can eat and drink and almost be like their moms. They should be with their Moms for 3 weeks and I have always started weaning them to make sure they were eating and drinking on their own. - close observation is important here. The boys can be removed at 3 weeks as they can get the mother pregnant. I have kept the "runt' with the mother longer but every week after 3 you could have a problem- but 5 weeks they may start actually "thinking" more about breeding and 3 weeks they still are quite little.
Males and females should never be kept together or you will have pups.
The expecting female will usually drink a lot more water and you should have food in front of her all the time. She will take care of her babies all by herself and unlike rabbits, if you pick up a baby .. I have had to do this before to put  a baby that was far from the mother and didn't want it to get too cold - under Mom to nurse- She won't kill it. I usually out of habit always run my hand on the mother's nose after so she smell me and feels more comfortable with the smell on her baby and picks up my scent. I really think it is best not to pick up the babies for a few days if possible.
Guinea pig raising is a lot of fun.. Just make sure you have homes for the babies or the feed will overtake you! If you get a expecting Mom enjoy the experience. However,  it is best not to breed unless you find that you are already in the situation where you have a mom already expecting a baby. Check with local pet stores BEFORE breeding..if you are hoping to sell them,  and bare in mind that there are so many guinea pigs out there waiting for adoption that if you decide you want to raise more you may find a ton of free ones right in your paper. We took in a few guinea pigs from friends and some of them already were expecting. We didn't mind because they were excellent addition to our farm but that is a concern as many times owners get them from pet stores and friends not knowing they got a male and a female vs two of the same sex-- so they may give away the mom not even knowing she was expecting!
I think most people that have had babies with Guinea pigs take this approach as they know that it's fun to have the babies but it's unfair if you can't feed them or you don't have homes if you find you have 12 guinea pigs all expecting and don't know where to go with the new litters! Speaking from a farmer's prosepective here we all know that the expense in raising animals is the "FEED" and you don't want to put your cash into "FEED BURNERS" if you need to grow a ton of peppers, or you need to get a new flock of chickens. So as far as breeding is concerned.. Plan on keeping all the babies unless you know of homes before the babies come! Then have two cages one for males and females. No wishful thinking here .. KNOW ahead of time.. or you may find your home filled with guinea pigs!

Win a $250 shopping spree click here






I was thrilled to be sent Spencer Quinn's book Scnets and Sensibility, a cozy mystery with Chet and Bernie helping to solve the crime! It was a howling good read and I curled up in my little ball in my reading chair and dug in. Chet and Bernie, well they are a couple of dogs- real dogs that is, so this made a great read for fun and relaxation for a animal lover like myself turning pages to try to figure out how to solve the mysteries of Who exactly were these people that seemed so sweet that were neighbor's of the doggies.. and why did they have a forbidden cactus in their front yard? And how did someone find out about the hidden safe in the doggies home? After closing the book I must say I decided right there and then I had another author to add to my list of favs. Really, If you are going to read make it a good one.. and this is a good one.. so pick up a copy and one for a friend for the Christmas Holidays (this will save you that are in the northeast from having to travel in the snow during the Holidays) - You will love it! I was sent this book free of charge and for my honest review.

I WILL REVIEW YOUR PRODUCT FOR FREE!





          Looking for PRODUCTS/BOOKS .. IT'S FREE except the cost of a product

Hi guys- We pride ourselves in sharing with all of those we connect with around the world with our strong online presence. Prior to moving on the farm - I had worked as a top sales Rep and Top recruiter in a few companies to say the least I have always been a mover and a shaker.. I realized that online PR work was for me when I caught the attention of celebrities and major companies and even social media companies begging for help. I have more followers than many companies and have a strong influence all over online - with that- I want to share my goal of sharing online the "best Products" and books, services, etc.. with my sphere of influence.  We are now asking for companies and individuals, to send us products to share with our followers  Big or small - A corporation or a grandma knitting from her front porch hoping to sell her goods.  We run our Best Product Tours year round and many companies just mail us products and write us a note so we know who sent it. We are cheap advertising as all we ask is that a company send us a product and in exchange we share about it all over the internet - blog, youtubes, twitter, fb, etc.. There is NO CHARGE however the products will not be returned and we will be either used in our home or donated or used in events we hold (a give a way) etc. WE NEVER SELL ANYTHING. We are asking all of our followers , etc.. to please share this this blog post with all your friends to help us out - We do depend on product reviews to help feed our family etc. but we trust God to always supply of course - but you know the saying you have not because you ask not.. so it is good to let people be aware of what and how we support ourselves. My husband also has a full time job. I blog and vlog in order to stay home and run our little backyard farm. We aren't having financial problems just making you aware as more than us - My gift is my mouth and I have an enormous influence online and it silly for you, not to take advantageous of this free resource if you have a business you are trying to kick off  or are a corp and paying big bucks..I have more followers on twitter http://www.twitter.com/R47R (approx 50,000 followers) than many  companies people put big bucks down to help them get the word out- not to mention my FB, twitter, nings, instragram, yadda yadda.. Take advantage of us ! Advertising is expensive - I should know I used to pay $500 a week in just one ad that I ran when I was a recruiter. - small paper ads are usually $5-20 I am talking a national ad. - The internet is world-wide - Okay with all of that I'm FREE just the cost of a product - The Goal - to help my audience learn about great products and of course to help my family or other families by donating the excess to needy families. So if you would like to be a part of our Best Product Tours anytime of the year - Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter we are Open for products 24/7 just email us at PopleBackyardFarm@gmail.com please put in the subject line - Ruthie we have products we would like to add to your tour.

great for new businesses

Crafters
etc..
techie companies
events (hotels, free tickets to games etc..)
