Unfortunately I'm going to start this off with a sad note unfortunately we lost Elphie 1 of our guinea pigs at the start of the month which I was completely devastated about & so was Letti my other guinea pig
But now as much as I am very much still upset over the loss of her we know we have to put our feelings aside for Letti's sake so we are rescuing 2 guinea pigs with the view to introduce them to each other & hope they all bond ok.
Here's where I need advice as I've never bonded guinea pigs before I've read up loads & watched videos to try get clued up as much as I can. I'm looking for someones advice that's done this before first hand. I'd love to hear how things went for you. Also what first aid things did you have at hand?
So sad that you lost Elphaba bubbles87, she was lovely. I used to keep guinea pigs many years ago, they are gorgeous pets to have. When I used to introduce new ones I just used to put them in with the others and see how they get on - better, if you have a pen where you can watch them easily and have easy access if they have to be taken out quickly. I've always found guinea pigs get on with each other quite well. What colour are the new ones you are getting? I had one like your Lettie and she had 2 babies, both exactly the same as her. Good luck with the new ones.
caz2golden: On walk today saw a dead branch hanging from a tree over a road. Probably been there a while but have not noticed before! Who do you report it too, tree would be owned by whoever has the field but the branch is over highway?

caz2golden: Had the drizzle etc yesterday, today was windy which has blown a load of young Manx Shearwaters onto the beaches Dumped a load on the beach cleaner (think we were up to 10 birds) and then I found another so took that to a place of safety!

lotsofcats: We had very high winds during the night and I slept through it all but if Kobi had barked just once I would immediately be awake.

caz2golden: We had the same here Lotsofcats, except I was awake for fair part of it. We had intermittent power cuts too. Felt sorry for the raw pet food delivery man the next morning who was probably coming across a lot of downed trees etc.
