Oreo and Biscuit are settling nicely into their new home! Lots of time exploring in the garden today 😁
Hi can someone help me s*x this guinea please w have just got her thinking she is a girl but then went to hump my other female she is around 4 years old xx
OMG I love Peeggie's! That's my nickname for them!
Our little Ember, daughter of Cromwell, 10 weeks old 😊
Hope all your gorgeous piggies are doing well.
We have a new cage for our 2 piggies and slowly looking at moving them outside- just waiting for the snow ❄️ to pass! 🤦🏼‍♀️. Just after some advice- we have a concrete floor and have some left over artificial grass, will they be ok to be on this???? TIA X
Our gorgeous Ember, 6 weeks old already! Daughter of the wonderful Cromwell ❤
The Giggle Pigs
Cromwell's beautiful daughter, Ember. She is our keeper and at just 24 days old she is already absolutely stunning! 💜
A little update on Cromwell & Bracken's pups!
Yesterday their two sons went off to their forever home with their new family!
These boys have been utterly amazing! As they have gone to live with good friends, we let them go early, at nearly 400g each and just over 3 weeks old, a week independent from mum they were so ready to bond with their new pig mum and dad!
We heard last night that they had taken the big day in their stride and were settling well!
We wish them a long, happy life in their new home! We will have updates and photos to share as they grow and will get to visit them in future when the world is in a better place!
Big thanks go out to Simon and Eleanor for allowing us to take the gorgeous Cromwell into our care last year which resulted in these beautiful babies! 💜
The Giggle Pigs
Thank you for our lovely friendly piggies adopted last week!

From ONE YEAR AGO - it’s come up on the feed.

Plato had her’s first on the 2nd Sept : 4 youngsters. And she wasn’t too keen on Epicurus being around, so she got pushed out to the ‘food area’ of the cage.

Epicurus had her 5 on 4th Sept and she clearly felt the cushion in the ‘bedding’ area was her delivery spot! She must have dashed onto it when she started having them. I remember we took Plato and her 4 out for a couple of days, then put them all back together again.

From the Plato litter we retained Hercules 🙄🤣🐾 & from Epicurus we retained Xenocrates 🤗🐾

A few pics of the Black Self I collected yesterday 🐾🐾 as seen in the LIVE show I did yesterday afternoon.

The piggy on the left is the Male from the Spike litter (DOB 2/8/21) & he’s now paired with this tremendous Black Self male (DOB 30/7/21)

The Black Self is related to our Dalmatian Dotty 👍🥰🥳 he is her sisters grandson 🤗

He was a litter of 4, all males. One was born Dalmatian & the other three Self Blacks.

Genetics mean you cannot put Dalmatian to Dalmatian together, you have to put Dalmatian with a Self Black.

These two will be off for very very exciting new adventures later this month. Pics taken 4th Sept 2021.

******
Our Dotty’s recent litter had Dalmatian litter characteristics in their coat colours, but as Dad was a swirly-whirly cream, they had a mix of other colours. They were a very interesting series of combinations. Dotty’s Grey daughter is with our friend and we’ll keep a close eye on her future.

Happy 1st Birthday to Xenocrates 🥰🐾

Born 4th Sept 2920 : litter size 5 : her mum
Is Epicurus & her dad (the fantastic) Gingerbread.

Xenocrates has a sister that looks incredibly similar, which makes it easy to start with 🤣🤣🤣

Lots of pics : enjoy. She is a pure breed Teddy

Lots of pics to celebrate the 2nd Birthday of Marshmallow 🥳 DOB 3/9/21

#GuineaPig #Marshmallow #Californian #Bucks #GuineaPigs #BucksGuineaPigTalks #Buckinghamshire

03/09/2021

Born that morning 3rd Sept 2019

A second video of ‘Birthday Girl’ Marshmallow : TWO TODAY : this is on the afternoon of the day her and her brother were born 3rd Sept 2019. She is the one with the white nose stripe……she looks very different now 🤣🤣

03/09/2021

A very very young Marshmallow

Marshmallow is TWO years old today 🤗🐾🥰

HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🥳

Born on 3rd Sept 2019 : litter size 2, she had a brother as well. Her Dad was Cromwell (a pure Californian…..hence her black points!) & her Mum is Mummy, who we still have.

You can just see the dark nose on Marshmallow starting to come through.

She is a quiet character, not one to be at the front of everything, not massively confident, but she is happy to be held. She does mix well with the others, they all seem to like her. 🤗

She came from the 2nd Mummy/Cromwell litter, we didn’t retain any of the 5 from the first litter born in Jan 2019, so we wanted one from the 2nd litter.

Marshmallow is now in with Hercules : this will be her third and final litter. Hopefully something in November 🤞🤞

Photos from Bucks Guinea Pig Talks's post 02/09/2021

Some pics just now (2nd Sept 2021) of ‘the Birthday Boy’ himself, Hercules with Marshmallow (and it’s her birthday tomorrow : she will be 2 🐾🐾)

All piggies out for the last two hours - have yours been out today?

Next week is looking quite sunny ☀️ yay! 🤗🤗

A very Happy 1st Birthday to Hercules 🤩👍🥳🐾 (born 2nd Sept 2020) : Mum Plato, Dad Pluto

Lots of photos of his first 12 months……he’s had quite a good time 🤣🤣🤣

#Hercules #GuineaPig #Bucks #BucksGuineaPigTalks

So today (Weds 1st Sept) we removed the Male from the Spike litter away from his sister and mum & Marshmallow 🥳

Had a bit of a shuffle as well : Hercules & Marshmallow are now in together, so possibly some youngsters there in December.

The Male from here (the one nearest the camera - the Black & White one) is now in with the remaining Cadbury son (he’s called Alvin). He’ll be paired with one of our friends young males : and they’ll be off later this month.

Alvin is off in a couple of weeks to go to an experienced Guinea Pig owner who has plenty of breeding knowledge - we will get a ‘daughter of Alvin’ back to us in the future.

It takes an awful lot of planning, thinking and time to work out the future 🐾🤗🤣

This is Ted 👍🐾🥰🤩

The Dad of the three from Spike & the two from Dusty.

Ted is super and rather chilled 😍🐾

(Pics taken today 27/08/21)

Photos from Bucks Guinea Pig Talks's post 27/08/2021

Who are these I hear you ask? (pause for dramatic effect! 🤣🤣) - these two youngsters are from the Dusty / Ted litter born on Sun 8th Aug 🤩🥳🐾

The Mum Dusty is a litter sister of our Spike and the youngsters have the same Dad as Spike’s 3. So they are half-siblings.

Don’t they look fabulous ? 🥰🥰 They are both Males - one looks incredibly like the Grandmother Hermione (who’s with us)

Dusty isn’t particularly easy to take pics of, as her fur colour is brilliant camouflage 😳🤩🤣🤣 She is a firm favourite of our friend 👍🐾

Pics from today 27/08/21

Photos from Bucks Guinea Pig Talks's post 27/08/2021

So today (27.08.21) was the day this wonderful Grey female from the Dotty / Flash litter (DOB 30th June) moved to be with our ‘expert Guinea Pig friend’

I also took pics of her with her mum Dotty & her half-sister Bumble (same Dad!)

A beautiful Grey piggy - we shall be keeping a close eye on her in the coming months 😉🐾

⭐️⭐️ Today’s LIVE SHOW at 5pm ⭐️⭐️

UPDATE : it’ll be a tour of the cages and our Guinea Pigs 🐾🥳🤩😍

The weather is currently 💦💦💦💦💦 and the forecast all day is lots more 💦💦💦💦💦 so I can’t do ‘the Show as I had originally planned’ - we’ll do that another time.

So today is up close with ALL 24 of our Guinea Pigs ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here is a very old bit of video from January 2019 : Mummy & Hermione (their first litters) and 8 baby guinea pigs

This Saturday : 21st Aug 2021 : 5pm we have a LIVE SHOW for you all to enjoy! 🥳🤣

Show 16 is going to be a bit different as it WILL be a short (entertainment) Show and Guinea Pigs at the end!

Pre-Covid I was going into Schools, Nurseries and to groups such as Beavers & Cubs etc : speaking & informing & showing our Guinea Pigs 🥳🥳 it was seriously VERY popular 👍🤩

We thought we’d show you all aspects of the show and we hope you enjoy. We actually DO have a real audience as well!

It might also be Eleanor’s birthday on Saturday 🥳🐾

We will upload it afterwards - it might only be up for a couple of days.

Thanks

Simon & Eleanor

And the next two males have gone off for ‘exciting new adventures’ 🐾👍🥳

🐾 One of Dotty’s and one of Cadbury’s 🐾

As always lots of photos and videos were taken earlier.

Photos from Bucks Guinea Pig Talks's post 12/08/2021

These two superstars have embarked on ‘exciting new adventures’ - they’ve actually gone to a ‘famous’ place - I can’t say too much at present - but we do know the Manager of the Children’s area. Might be Oxfordshire 🤫

Good luck boys! 🥳🥳🥳

One of Cadbury’s and one of Stardust’s : Hercules is dad of them both.

Great news - Epicurus went off to the vet to have her abscess sorted today 👍 all went ok - it was right in her chin. It was drained 10 days ago, but it had partially comeback - so we (the vet) decided to have it all taken out under anaesthetic - the best method.

Pics from this morning and the vet suggested that another piggy went along as company - so Xenocrates went along to support her mum 🥰

Antibiotic liquid for a week and then another checkup next Monday. Hopefully that’ll sort it 🤞

It cost £85 for today (we just put £20 into an account each month - we don’t go the insurance route).

She is doing well and is eating etc

Got my hands on one 🤩🥳🥳🥳🥳 thank you Eleanor for blocking the aisle as we got the last one off the shelf!!!

These two males have now gone for ‘exciting new adventures’ - Hercules now is with 5 friends!

A very nice pair and beautiful markings. One from the Dotty / Flash litter & the other from the Stardust / Hercules litter.

As per usual, I took lots of pics and a bit of video 🐾🤗🤩

Here they are : the Three youngsters from the Spike / Ted litter - born Mon 2nd Aug 2021

Fortunately they all look so different - easy to weigh and note the weights 🤣🤣

Also : Dusty the sister of Spike delivered Two this morning - I’m waiting on pics - they shared the same Dad as these three….curious to see how similar they look 👀

Sat 7th Aug : LIVE Show 15 : Bucks Guinea Pig Talks

Photos from Bucks Guinea Pig Talks's post 07/08/2021

The rather fabulously marked Bubbles - eldest son of Stardust & Hercules 🥳 he’s super and we would have kept him if he’d been a she 🤣🤣🤣 Many of our piggies from the past 3 years are directly related to him - he has a variety of types in his recent dna - Californian, Teddy, Coronet & Lilac

His fur has long strands like his dad Hercules 👍🤗 his sister Myrtle has none of this.

Bubbles goes back with Toffee after a short stay here.

Photos from Bucks Guinea Pig Talks's post 07/08/2021

The rather handsome Toffee is going back to his ‘real owners’ today along with Bubbles (pics to follow) after a one week stay 🥳👍

He’s a half-brother to Cadbury : he’s not displaying the Californian black points though.

Toffee & Bubbles did get to go out on our grass this week but not for many days due to the rain 🌧🙄👍

Photos from Bucks Guinea Pig Talks's post 03/08/2021

Spike’s 3 (born yesterday : Monday 2nd Aug 2021) went out on the grass for the first time today 🤩👍🐾

It was basically a ‘family day out’.

Hermione, Spike and the ‘Spike 3’
Mummy, Marshmallow, Stardust, the ‘4 female Stardust youngsters & Myrtle (Stardust’s daughter from her first litter).

For those that are not aware : Hermione & Mummy are sisters, Spike & Marshmallow their respective daughters, Stardust is Granddaughter of Mummy….and then all the youngsters 🥳🤣🤣🤣

I think that comes to 13 🤩🐾🥰🥳

Photos from Bucks Guinea Pig Talks's post 02/08/2021

SPIKE has had her youngsters 🥰🥰🥰 a beautiful litter of THREE : all fine and healthy.

SPIKE is also looking fabulous 🐾🐾

This makes Hermione a Grandmother (and she actually was licking the youngster in the pic!) 🤩

All lovely stuff : the Dad of these was our friends piggy called Ted, he has been informed 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Spike’s sister Dusty was also in with Ted….so it’ll be interesting to see what she has in the coming days.

What I do.......

** During the Covid-19 situation - my family and I are running a FREE weekly LIVE-stream Facebook Show - I’ve tried to re-create my normal ‘audience Shows’ in the comfort of our home....it’s fun, full of regular features, real Guinea Pigs and very popular : Sat 11am (BST) & all previous Shows can be seen as ‘catch-up’ : we’d be thrilled if you’d join us **

My name is Simon Holding and I live in Buckinghamshire, England. Over the last couple of years, I have been taking our pet Guinea Pigs into Schools and Nurseries. As well as showing the Guinea Pigs to the children, I give a short informative, educational, light-hearted talk to suit the audience age-range. The key message is Animal Welfare - I think, a very important educational requirement in this day and age.

I have four aims for each Show - to educate, to inform, to amuse and to entertain. Through a mix of props, information and picture boards and lots of audience interaction and involvement - I achieve this. What I do is easy to copy, BUT much harder to actualy deliver ! As well as the Guinea Pigs, I also have lots of Public Performing experience and have presented at Dog Shows, Talent Shows, and Open Air Cinema’s.

As someone who has owned Guinea Pigs for many years, I feel that they are perfect animals to take into Schools and Nurseries - once the information side of the ‘show’ is completed, the Guinea Pigs then come out, and in a controlled environment, the children (if they wish) can stroke the Guinea Pigs - the children sit in a circle and we go from child to child with each Guinea Pig.
