how long does it take for a guinea pig to give birth ?
hi.. I looked this up on line and this is what I found...
"The gestation period (time between conception and giving birth) for guinea pigs is approximately 60-70 days. Guinea pigs do not normally require assistance in giving birth. The babies are born with a full coat, open eyes, and can run and eat solid food. They will nurse for two or three weeks even though they are eating on their own. The young are usually in no danger from either parent, although you may want to remove the male right away, since the female is able to conceive again within the hour after giving birth.
Litter size varies from one to eight, but typically have two to four. Weaning is at 14 to 28 days, when pigs are about 200 grams. Guinea pigs become sexually mature as early as four weeks of age so it is important to separate the different sexes by then. Therefore, the males of the litter should be separated from the mother and their sisters directly after weaning.
It is important to handle the babies soon and often, to socialize them to humans. Like other animals that are born precocial, guinea pigs form their social bonds shortly after birth, sometime within a matter of hours, so human contact is critical during this time to ensure that they establish strong bonds to people."
Good luck! :)
