Guinea pig gestation lasts about 2 months; these rodents are extremely endearing; find a picture. Pregnancy of these animals lasts an average for 63 days. If the litter is large, the term of pregnancy will be shorter and vice versa. As a rule females give birth to 1-6 young in a litter. The young are born fully furred, with teeth and open eyes. Although, the young begin to eat solid food and drink water from a container when only 2 or 3 days old, they should be allowed to nurse their mother for 2 - 3 weeks. As the mature male animals are bound to be aggressive, they should be kept separated. As the young males reach maturity, severe battles occur between them and the leader. The weaker males submit and are driven from the herd with a single female. Guinea pig gestation lasts about 2 months; these rodents are extremely endearing; find a picture.

Do not breed these animals if you have no experience. Unfortunately, a lot of owners make a huge mistake when they produce a litter out of interest. Breeding is a complicated process which should be done only by a professional. As a result of irresponsible breeding, a great deal of cavies is placed in rescues. If you are still aiming at breeding these rodents, at least, make sure that you will be able to provide them with good homes and sufficient care. But if you have some doubts, please, leave the idea of breeding cavies. Guinea pig gestation lasts about 2 months; these rodents are extremely endearing; find a picture.
