Guinea Pig Labor Signs?


One of the first signs that your guinea pig is in labor is a hiccuping type of motion. Labor for guinea pigs is very fast, and generally takes no more than 40 minutes total. The mom will reach back toward her back end to help pull her baby out. These motions often happen prior to the first baby being born. The sow, or mother, will also seem to be anxious and slightly more protective of herself than normal.
