Hello to all Hope everyone is enjoying a great sunday. I'm Rachel, married with 2 children.We have 4 pets which include a gerbil,a chinchilla and 2 guinea pigs and that's where the probem lies! Bought a smooth haired 9 wk old female agouti last week and she seemed lonely so yesterday afternoon we bought a female smooth haired english(common cinnamon type) but from a different pet shop. Both aren't related etc. The 2nd guinea pig is about the same age the pet shop owner said but she is a little bit bigger. Came home and put them in a neutral place with food and water. They frze for a while but then the new one came and got food and then the other did, they sniffed each other's bottoms and then both made the cooing noises but then the new one started getting naughty-she would push the other one outa the food bowl so we put 2 in, she took 1 of the two apples and would eat it and then if the first one came she would move her and get aggressive. She pushes her outa the way and makes her do the shrieking sound but then it stops and they do the cooing again but it all starts again-2nd one seems to pick on her and does it inside the covered hut we have too. She is doing it again right now. We had to split the cage in two last night so they wouldn't fight. Any advice would help-will they always be like this or is it normal because Pets at home said introduce them first not in the cage and they are suposed to be friendly and sociable creatures! The other pet shop said the said. Now what do I do!!??? Help! ps not sure if this is where it should have gone.
