Hello and thanks for researching this very important question!

Guinea Pig Mommas take care of their young ones for three weeks. After this time, they should be large enough to reach the water bottle and eat complete meals during the day.

Male GPs begin to mature quickly after 4 weeks of age, so be sure to remove them first if you don't want more babies!
