Good to hear you know the real size requirements for a guinea pig cage! Most people won't follow the 7.5 square foot per pig rule, but you went over. Nice!

Also, I don't know if you have to spay and neuter, like rabbits, but you can litter box train guinea pigs, just in case you get sick of mucking out a 42 square foot pen. Look it up, it'll change your life

Too much hassle. Tried to train rabbits before, but they refused.

Pretty sure the huge amount of space is what really helped them integrate seamlessly!
They spent time separated, a lot less than before, and then let em go!
If only I could make an even larger pen!

They are slowly learning what treats, fresh foods & grasses are. I forgot that new babies have no idea what anything except hay & pellets are!

Someone got a name!

Other turned out to be a male and was sent away immediately. Talking with a few breeders, there's hope that he was too young and the three eldest sows are too old to catch.
