Guinea Pigs

Breeding from your guinea pig Owner Factsheet

Contributor(s): Vetstream Ltd, Abigail Edis


The single most important breeding consideration is that female guinea pigs should be first bred before 7 months of age. If the first breeding is delayed beyond this time, serious (sometimes life-threatening) problems with delivery are encountered. Females should be first bred between 3 and 7 months of age, and males should be 34 months old at their first breeding.
