Introduction

General information

  • Like a Silkie Silkie, long hair flows from head to tail with a center parting, with a single crest on the top of the head.
  • Pups are born with short hair and grows at a rate of around half an inch a month; by the age of four months the hair should be fully grown and will touch the ground.
  • They require a lot of grooming; if the guinea pig is not a show animal, the hair can be trimmed to keep it tidy and to remove any knots/matted areas.
