Guinea pigs need a draught proof hutch placed in a sheltered position, out of direct sunlight, with a private bedroom to rest and sleep in. It is best to place the hutch on a table so that they can see you when you are feeding them and cleaning their cage. They enjoy a pen on the grass in the nice weather with a box inside to hide in. Always ensure that hutch doors are locked to avoid accidental escape or access to predators, such as foxes. Guinea Pigs need a balanced diet of formulated guinea pig food and hay daily. The food must contain vitamin c as guinea pigs cannot generate their own, plus carrots, cabbage and apples to gnaw on. They love being talked to and chatter away.
