How Old Can Guinea Pigs Be To Leave Their Mother?


Guinea pigs can be weaned from their mothers as early as 3 weeks old though 4-6 weeks old is more common.

Some guinea pig breeders will wean their litters even later at 8-10 weeks old.

Ultimately it is up to the breeder to decide when the pups are ready to be on their own.

When Can Baby Guinea Pigs Meet Their Dad?

You can introduce your baby guinea pigs to their dad once they are around 2-3 weeks old.

It’s best to wait until they are a bit older and more settled before bringing them into contact with their father as this will help reduce the risk of stress and fighting.

If you have more than one baby guinea pig you can introduce them to their dad at the same time.

Just make sure to supervise closely at first to make sure everyone is getting along ok.

Once your baby guinea pigs have met their dad they can all live together happily as a family.

Just make sure to provide plenty of space food and water for everyone and they’ll all be happy and healthy together.
