Honeyduke and her three : born yesterday Mon 4th April 2022. Pics taken late today 5th April.
Really nice trio 🐾🐾🐾🥰
Here are pics I took earlier this evening (Tues 5th April 2022) of Stardust and her SIX ❤️ Born yesterday 4th April.
They are a wonderful bunch 👍
Our two newest litters 🥰❤️ (both born yesterday Mon 4th April 2022 : 5pm & 7pm)
First pic is the Honeyduke THREE
Second pic is the Stardust SIX
Pics taken this morning at 6am - it’s vital to check all is well with the mums and then the youngsters 👍 all moving about fine 👍
Clear photos will be taken (and posted) later this evening & they’ll all be weighed.
By the weekend I’ll also have a clear idea on what is what in each litter……..
We may have a Teddy-type in the Stardust SIX, I need to see how that one is later - it’s the front brown/white one.
Don’t forget to TAG people in - loads of cute pics in the coming days….
Double baby BOOM!! 🤣🐾❤️
Probably from 7pm, a rapid series of deliveries 🐾
Ahhhhh Stardust has started delivering her litter. No idea how many she has, pics taken with phone flash.
Dad of these is Mr Xmas Pudding - a pure Teddy. So possibly these might be Teddy looking as Stardust is a half-Teddy. Would be nice to see one at least looking like a Teddy….🤞
Anyway, I shall update a bit later on. Stardust was climbing up the bars earlier….😳🥰🐾🤣
I’VE JUST POSTED THESE BEFORE LOOKING AT THEM - SO CHECK THEM BEFORE SHOWING YOUR CHILDREN.
THIS IS EXACTLY HOW IT IS UPON DELIVERY 👍 all is fine
SIX 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾 SIX : a couple of photos added 👌 WOW ❤️
Honeyduke has not long had 4 of which 3 are alive. Maybe born about 4.30pm
We shall see how things go. Early viewing Honeyduke seems ok.
These are very early photos & the youngsters are Great Grandpiggies of our much missed Hermione 🥰
7.20pm UPDATE : all seems fine 👍👍👍….and over the other side of the shed…
Wonderful to meet Jo from Webster's Pet Care earlier today. Her passion for Animal Welfare is very clear and we’ll be meeting again soon. 👍 Mummy (…..the Guinea Pig!) liked her as well! 🐾🤣
Pics from yesterday : two from the Bumble / Hercules litter : DOB 12.03.22
Both are males and they are now in with Hercules and all is fine 👍👍👍
Marshmallow has been moved in with her family - I really don’t think she’ll now have any further youngsters.
Enjoy the pics, they are such a fabulous looking pair 🐾🐾
Sun 3rd April 2022 : LIVE SHOW 7 (part 1) : Bucks Guinea Pig Talks
This is sweet : even though she lost her own two, Xenocrates is quite happy to feed the three from Epicurus (they are actually her half-siblings).
I’m just doing doing cage cleaning when I saw this - they are about to be moved back into their clean cage!
Awwww Xenocrates 🥰🐾 Other pics of Stardust (who is enormous!) and Epicurus.
When Hercules met his youngsters from the Bumble litter……🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 he got so excited 🙄
We took these Sunday 27th March 2022
Hercules looks incredibly similar to one of the youngsters 👌🐾🤣
It’s never as easy as it looks to achieve the ‘perfect’ lineup 🥰
When Cracker met Marvel and (his) youngsters ❤️ pics taken on Sunday 27th March 2022 (they were born on Thurs 24th March 2022)
He was like a statue 😱 no rumbling or bothering Marvel : he just looked at them and barely moved.
We took LOADS of pics : so some of these might be a bit dark, but others will look fine.
This rounds off the photos of Mummy (….the Guinea Pig!) and have fabulous FOURTH birthday yesterday.
We’ve had a slight dusting of snow earlier 😱😱😱 so they won’t be out today - hopefully Mummy will meet every single member of her extended family soon…..that’ll be some pic 🤣🥰
Thank you everyone for enjoying her photos for the last few days 🐾🐾🐾👌👍
Happy 4th Birthday 🥳🐾🎂 to Mummy (….the Guinea Pig!)
Good morning to the BIRTHDAY LADY herself : Mummy is now FOUR YEARS OLD 🥳😍🤩👍
Second pic is from this morning - with flash…awful pic 🤣 The others we took on Sunday. But the first one was Aug 2019.
Mummy has had so many lovely pics of her taken in the almost 4 years since we got her - I don’t think we can pick any favourite!!
We hope you enjoy todays photos to Like, Share, Comment & TAG 🎂🎂🎂🎂
Mummy will be spending the day with her Great Grandpiggy Myrtle and her daughter Great Great Grandpiggy Mercury & also Milky Way & Mini Milk. No doubt it won’t be quiet!!! 🥳🥳
Tomorrow : 30th March 2022 is the FOURTH birthday of Mummy 🥰🐾❤️
Todays pics are mainly of her and her litter sister Hermione 🐾🐾 yes they absolutely were 👌👌 Mummy & Hermione got on incredibly well and were ‘calm and formidable’ to all the other Guinea Pigs 🤣🤣 nothing bothered them!
We sadly lost Hermione in late January 2022, but they spend many weeks together right until the end 👍
Long term we’ll probably put Mummy with her daughter Marshmallow and a youngster or two.
We do have some super pics for tomorrow 🐾 🎂 🥳
Another wonderful early morning surprise today (Tues 29th March 2022) at 6am ❤️❤️❤️❤️ : I think Spike was quite pleased to have them : she was 1,808g on Sunday - she was 1,267g just now. That’s 4 youngsters for you!!
I imagine they were born about 4-5am, as they were still very slightly damp when I first saw them. Pics taken just now.
Dad of this - of course the fantastic Dasher - you can see his markings in two of them.
They are all incredibly cute 🥰 This is Spike’s second litter & they are Grandpiggies to our (late and much missed) Hermione ❤️🐾
Only two pregnancies to go now….Honeyduke & Stardust. 🤞🤞 (Dotty the Dalmatian will be in a few weeks).
Monday 28th March pics : Some more pics of Mummy - our Superstar Guinea Pig who is 4 years old on Weds 30th March 2022.
She’s not actually really that tame! She’s very relaxed and friendly once you’ve picked her up, and if she’s on the grass she’ll stay still to get lifted up 🤣🥰
When I give her cage daily vegetables, I make sure the first bit goes to her, not that she is second best in her cage though 🤣🤣
More pics tomorrow……
It’s (Guinea Pig) Mothers Day 🐾🥰
Some of the pics I’ve got off the phone taking us to the end of 2020. (I’ve missed the first 5 earlier litters of 2019…..but there are plenty of pics!!)
Back to Sun 27th March 2022 : still 3 pregnant Guinea Pigs……no news yet….. ⏰
Marvel and her three : out on the grass for a few hours today ☀️☀️☀️
Looking great for 30 hours old ❤️🐾🥰
Weigh day tomorrow, they won’t be too much heavier than their birth weight on Friday 25th March 2022.
We’ll try and get some pics of them all with Cracker their Dad tomorrow 🙄🤣
Mummy is FOUR YEARS OLD on Weds 30th March 2022.
As a Great Great Grandmother : I like to think that Mummy actually recognises each of her family - she probably doesn’t to be honest 🙄🤣 - but anyway……here are today’s photos of the wonderful Mummy and her family!
The gaps between each of her family generations are quite big, as we’ve never rushed any breeding - we’ve also only ever used top notch males.
Mummy (…….the Guinea Pig) now has SIX beautiful Great Great Grandpiggies 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾
More pics tomorrow…..
It’s MARVELLOUS Marvel and her THREE born today around noon (Friday 25th March 2022)
Good sizes (110-130g range) & Marvel is looking great and interacting fully with her youngsters.
She wasn’t massive carrying the three, I knew she was pretty close 🐾🐾🐾
These three are Great Great Grandpiggies to Mummy (….the Guinea Pig) : she now has 6 after Myrtle’s recent three.
Excellent news with Marvel’s success. The intention is to keep a female from this litter- so we’ll find out what they are in the coming days - initial look is that they might all be females.
Spike, Honeyduke & Stardust are all incredibly close to delivering theirs….so 🤞
** NEW YOUNGSTERS ALERT **
We’ve had more success a couple of hours ago (Fri 25th March 2022) ……so let’s play a little guessing game 🥳🐾
Which ONE of these 4 has had youngsters today and HOW MANY?
Four choices….. (Edited - it’s Marvel)
3) Marvel 🐾🐾🐾 THREE!! 👍👍👍
Write one of the above names and how many you think she has had in Comments 👍
[I will post up the answer and pics later ❤️]
Let’s see if anyone can guess right….?
Mum and youngsters are looking good 🥰
In the lead up to her 4th Birthday on 30th March 2022, I’m posting up a few pics each day of our super ‘Mummy the Guinea Pig’.
As you can see, she is pretty photogenic 🤩🐾👍 so is perfect for ‘promotional cards’ and stickers as well as popular Instagram posts 🤣
Her (unique) name came from our youngest daughter Imogen who was almost 3 when we got Mummy, Hermione & Squeak Squeak.
We asked her what she wanted to call ‘her’ Guinea Pig and said Mummy (obviously a recognition of her own Mum Eleanor). So that’s why she is called Mummy and I added on ‘….the Guinea Pig’ bit to differentiate the Guinea Pig and Eleanor!! 🤣🤣
Next Weds : 30th March 2022 : Mummy (the Guinea Pig) will be 4 years old 🥳🎉 & a Great Great Grandmother as well 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾
Over the next few days I will post up some pics that you might not have seen before of her!
So let’s start with these : it’s Mummy and her daughter (a very young) Marshmallow. This is from 4th Nov 2019. Marshmallow was 8 weeks old.
Mummy only had two litters : a 5 in Jan 2019 & a 2 in Sept 2019. In total 4 sons and 3 daughters. We did try for a 3rd litter, but it never happened…..she clearly scared off the males! 🤣🤣
As a mum, she was superb and very happy for us to handle her youngsters. Always a gentle character and not too fierce, although she does occasionally rattle her teeth! 🤣🤣
More pics tomorrow…….. 🎂
This is from a couple of years ago, look at the number of SHARES 😱😱😱😱😱😱 224!
Utterly amazing. We absolutely never expected to catch a wave of popularity - it’s incredibly humbling.
Thank you all - please keep SHARING

The darker red eyes female is called Mercury! DOB 29.01.22 : She is the daughter of Myrtle and Dasher. Granddaughter of Stardust and Hercules.
No news as yet to report on Stardust, Spike, Honeyduke or Marvel…..it’s just a waiting game now 🤞🐾🤣🥰
LIVE SHOW 6 : Bucks Guinea Pig Talks : Sun 20th March 2022 : TWO YEARS OF LIVE SHOWS
We started our Facebook LIVE Shows TWO YEARS AGO today 🎂🎂👍👍 Wow!
We might do one later this afternoon….🤫 (we’ll upload it afterwards - so you won’t miss it!)
Eleanor didn’t think the LIVE shows would last a fortnight, but somehow we’ve got to TWO YEARS 🤣🤣🤣 thank you everyone.
Much appreciated indeed - what an experience (so far……..)
I hope we can keep sharing with you all our Guinea Pigs for a while yet 🐾🥳
Wide load! 🤣🐾❤️ Stardust from

The 3 young males (first 4 pics) - they leave us on Monday.
Presently awaiting youngsters from Spike, Honeyduke, Marvel & Stardust. Dotty is due in April. 🐾🐾
It’s going to be a lovely sunny day with us, hopefully with you all as well ☀️☀️☀️☀️
Still ‘Queen of the Castle’ - she did this last summer…..
Didn’t expect Myrtle to still be doing it!!
Piggies have been out since 2.15pm here, soon to go back in 🥳🐾
Have yours been out today?
The weekend is looking good for sunshine 👍☀️☀️
** 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.
