guinea pigs...Do they both need their own igloo?

    Hello,
    We recently bought two cavies and are just loving them! They were both sharing an igloo. I noticed that one of them is always in the igloo and the other is outside. They used to both be in there, no problems. Should I get a second igloo for the one who is staying outside? Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    La Rae

    If they are male and female and the female has become pregnant they usually kick the male out of there igloo.
    My stepdaughters guinea pig did this we got what we thought was 2 males as they are more lovable and friendly than the females, But guess what within 3weeks there was 2 baby guinea pigs in with them i nearly died when i saw them run.


    You could try putting in another one see how that goes but i would not worry to much aslong as they are warm.

    no you do not need two igloos for your guinea pigs if you want to get another one you can but you dont NEED two if the one is never letting the other in to the igloo than that just means its the dominant one and that it doesnt want to share its "bed"

    yeah my piggys do that too...its just the piggys preference...you could also put a small box like an orange box, that way they could chew on the boz and theyd both have a home...but you dont need another one
