It took some doing. Tom was not sold on the concept of 10 animals. We saw Finn at Country Max one night and I fell in love, husband said he had to think about it. My son cried. Two days later, husband comes home from work, comes downstairs and I see him eyeballing the cages. He says, "I've been thinking about a house bun all day. But where would we put one?"

My response was, "Well...since you asked..." Followed by me pulling out blueprints I'd drawn of the space. We went back to CM to get hay, Finn was still there. He sighs, leans down and says to him, "What do you think? You wanna get out of here and go home?"

Then he totally took my blueprints and ran with it. Cut and scored the platform out of untreated pine and vinyl stick-back tiles. He was downstairs gluing and sanding. The he handed it over to me and I did the grids the way I wanted and built the door. I actually shared my photos on Facebook and had some people ask me to help them upgrade spaces for their own rabbits.

Hello everyone! New mom here to three female guinea pigs (teddies).
Black & White Sow + Black/Gold/White Sow, sisters born 12/29/2016.
Tortoise Shell & White Sow, born 12/7/2016.

Sorry about the poor quality pictures. Top picture was taken in the evening while all three were out.
Bottom left is their housing set up - half of the cage is cut out in the picture.
Their housing is approx. 12-13 square foot.
Bottom right image is of them hiding in the corners of their bed on their first day home.

Wow they are cute! Even when they are hiding!

Do you have 100% confirmation they are all females? Look over gl/sexing.html and check out links too.

Lynx - Yep! I actually made sure alongside with the woman I adopted these from, of their gender (using her knowledge and my prior research).
As cute as I think guinea pig babies are, I would prefer not to add any more little ones to the world when there are so many adorable ones already to adopt.

WindeSpirit - Thank you! I thought the same thing. They're still adjusting to their new home.
The tortoise shell & white sow (named Mango), is very spunky and is always the first to explore.
It's so funny/cute to me to see their different personalities interacting.

I just realized I never posted pics of Rosie so here are some pics of her, one set the first night she came home (those pics have her with a bow) and the others I took when she was still a single though had piggy neighbors. I'm considering doing a thread over at Cavy Chronicles for the trio in the near future but am waiting to see how things work out.

In the mean time, this is Rosie:

First night here (Rosie is my pancaker)

And these were a little before Christmas. By this time, I learned that she A) Will find a way to get rid of any hair clips and B) Prefers her hair "natural"--by which I mean even after grooming, she needs to do a quick shake to "fix" my inability to put every strand of hair where they need to be...these pics will give you a good idea why I can't do it correctly. They aren't good quality but just...I had to share

Oh, wow, she is adorable!

Melting with the bow on top of the fluffy head! GetShelly had a cool floofy guinea pig too!

p.s. I wonder if hair gel is guinea pig safe ;-)

Thanks everyone.

Lynx- I loved her with the bow. With it, she reminded me of Cindy Loo Hoo (it was also just after Thanksgiving so perhaps Christmas was on my mind) but she wasn't having it. Even though she couldn't figure out how to get into her cuddle sack without help (she kept digging under), she could almost immediately figure out something was on her head and find a way to remove it.

Rosie would like you to know she doesn't just use any ol' brand of hair gel that you can just pop in a store and buy--she gets that stuff professionally made for her personally and jealously guards her supplier. She won't even share with me. :)

She's such a sweetie (to me) but I've noticed she's an utter brat to my girls. Not in a mean way but more like that annoying younger sibling always up in Daisy's business who, in addition from taking mama Winnie's attention away from Daisy, also has become quite spoiled and, since mama Winnie's scuffles with Daisy on her behalf a few days ago, much more brazen in annoying Daisy.

ETA: She'll bug Winnie too but less so for some reason. I assume she accepts Winnie is definitely the dominant and sees her and Daisy as on more equal playing field.

Rosie is too cute Greysome! & I can totally relate with you.
I noticed that my own have distinct personalities;
it can be a love/hate relationship at times between the three of them. Sigh

I like spending time with each of them individually; sorta like one-on-one bonding time.
Today was spend mostly with my little sweet one, Mochi:

She loves cuddles and will close her eyes while we snuggle.
She's not that fond of veggies yet, unlike her sisters
- who love munching on lettuce and carrots, especially.

Oh, Mochi is so adorable!

And yes, the love/hate relationship--though that only happened with Rosie's appearance. Winnie and Daisy tend to just be good with one another though there are little tiffs when Winnie thinks Daisy is over-doing her dominance/aggression to Rosie Daisy is very protective of Winnie's attention and I think would prefer if Winnie would just ignore Rosie. Rosie will get on both of the other girls' nerves though much less so Winnie, who lets her get away with so much more than she would let Daisy.

Cute piggies and bun, everyone. I love the bow in Rosie's hair--I wonder if my boys could stand it.

Never mind I am thinking of bow ties on boars.
