Congratulations! One of each sex is nice, so each parent can have a companion.

That is the plan providing all goes well and they bond well.

If it is one of each it is best possible combo for me.

Next best would be 2 sows so chunk can have the snip then move in with them.

Hopefully all will go well through the bonding process

Mum is doing well. Been up eating and drinking. Babies are clean and running around also. Exploring and tasting everything and anything Milk bar is open I think they have their heads in the right place anyway

Little update everyone is doing well. One of the babies has lost 10g which I'm was a bit concerned about as that's quite a lot for such a tiny thing. I checked the weight again this evening and it's gone up! So fingers crossed.

Eil (Eileithyia-Eris formerly Oreo) is doing well and has gained 70g in weight since babies were born. There's plenty of tiny poos appearing in the cage so mum is doing everything right. (Which is a huge relief)

Dysnomia (Mia for short) the potential baby sow is the one that has lost the weight but is happily munching on hay and a few pellets. Running around like a loony! Also the more adventurous out of the 2.

Apollo, the potential boar pup (with a dot on his back) is doing well and you'll normally find him popcorning and jumping in hay piles. He too has started to gain weight.

Jupiter (formerly Chunk) seems very interested in the babies. Wheeks more than usual now and popcorns when he sees them so hopefully that's a good sign.

I've just caught up with the fact that you now have a whole guinea pig family!! Congratulations.

How do you pronounce Eil? Like ale?

I know it's crazy! Technically it's pronounced like eel but I use el like as if it was short for Ella or Elsa.

The first bit of her name is pronounced El-eeth-ee-ya.

For anyone who may be interested in the meanings of the names:

- Eileithyia - Greek goddess of childbirth and labour pains
- Eris - Greek goddess of chaos

I thought these were both fitting as she has a litter and she's bought chaos with her lol

- Dysnomia - in Greek mythology she's the demon daughter of Eris. She is the demon of lawlessness

This suits the little potential sow to a T. Law to herself that one haha.

- Apollo - Greek God of music and dance. The little potential boar loves to popcorn and wheek. It's like he's singing and dancing. It's adorable I must try and get a video of it to show you all.

- Jupiter - Odd one out as he's a Roman god. King of the gods. Zeus would be the Greek equivalent but the boar has a patch of red hair on him like the red spot on the planet so thought it would make more sense.

Little update on piggies

The babies are a week old now and doing really well. Mum is good too. Babies have started interacting more with Jupiter (through the bars).

Here's a little video. (Yes I know there's pee on the newspaper, I was about to do spot cleaning)

Been a while since I've updated. All piggies are doing well. I'm certain I have a boy and a girl now and they will both be staying to be paired up with mum and dad.

Apollo is 243g now so tomorrow he'll be 250+ so he will be seperated from mum and introduced properly to dad. I'm a tad nervous about it but I'm sure Jupiter will accept the little guy by how they interact through the bars.

Here's some photos:
