    well i got them today.. finally i waited all day.... anyways they r to cute!!!! i didnt get a chance to take pix b/c when i got home it was dark and i have one of those cheap cameras that will only work outside in bright light. but ill try and post some tomarrow...but some other news that came along w/ them when i picked them up that they might not be two males afterall it might be female and a male ad the girl migt be pregnate!!! :shock: but i havent handled them to much since i got them since i know the long car ride has probably upset them enough. i handled them long enough to change their huge cage (i could fit probably 10 cats in the thing its BIG) and put food in etc...

    That site will show you what a male and female should look like. Thats kinda umb that they did'nt know the sex the guinea pigs yet you can tell right when their born what sex they are. BTW if your thinking your gonna get tons of babies it very unlikely considering if the female is a female at only four months luckily it is safe for her to have babies she will only have a litter ranging from 1-4 babies. My female only had two. Sorry if this came out a bit harsh and im just trying to help definatly check out that site though.

    sorry i havent been on in a while... so im a little late.. my 2 piggys r both males!!! :eek: ... but i was grooming them today brushing etc.. for the first time since i got them and they have LICE!!! :shock: i called the vet today and he just told me to pick up this shampoo 4 guinea pigs that have lice (i have the brand name wrote down in my car) and do wash them when i get it and then again in 2 weeks and to be on the safe side to keep washing them w/ it 2 more times every two weeks...then that should take care of it if not them to bring them in and get them the shot.... to change the bedding to paper towels 4 now etc.. soooi guess i will try that....im so upset i dunno how long these poor babies have had this they have to be so uncomfortable...

    but... we r still trying to think of names 4 them my son calls one shaggy and the other chewy but.... then there is pookie, odie, and a few others (we like the movie garfield can u tell?lol) but i will post some pix when i can find a good uploading site....since there is no more photo island

    Oh no not lice. Oh well atleast the treatment is simple enough.

    Personally I like Chewy, my old neighbors have a little black rabbit names Chewy.

    Can't wait for the pics

    thank you.. i think thats what we r gonna name them... shaggy and chewy.. shaggy cause he has only a few long hairs around his ears and butt and the other one chewy cause he will chewy on anything he can sink his teeth into...
