I went into the spare bedroom this morning to give all my guinea pigs carrots and to see if any of them needed water. Sorry to say I found Hershey, my only male was dead. I felt really bad of course, and even cried for a bit. R.I.P my baby. He wasn't that old either. Only about 3 years of age. Three of my guinea pigs are 4 years of age, which were Hershey's aunts, and his sister Squeekers is also 3 years of age. I know guinea pigs don't live that long any way, but thought it strange that he was the first one to go. I got him and his sister from a different breeder then the other 3.
