    My cousin thinks her guinea pig may be pregnant and she asked whether she should remove the dad if the female gives birth. I know absolutely nothing about g-pigs but said I'd find out for her.

    Can anyone offer some info that I can pass on?

    Yes definately remove the male asap as they get pregnant again minutes after giving birth (they are the most fertile then!) She will also need to be able ot sex babies and remove young boys at 3 weeks or they will get mum/sisters pregnant!
