Baby guinea pigs should be separated from mom at 3 weeks of age. Not doing so will end up in a pregnancy, because at 3 weeks of age the baby boar is able to mate with his mom. This could be a huge problem, because the pups may born with defects and deformities, so I personally will take out the baby boar.

"because the pups may born with defects and deformities,"

Have you honestly ever seen a deformed baby relating to this quote ????? scratch

Well I have never... Yes it is wise to remove the males from their mothers at 3 - 4 weeks of age to prevent any un planned matings.

Has you heard of LINE Breeding... so many big studs use this method to produce better typed cavies and they have been doing so for many years now.

Honestly, I do not know shoot about breeding and I'm not interesting in knowing so, but I would really like to learn about it and hear your stories about it, so feel free to inform us about all your duties.
