Guinea Pig Chirping

I have read about this and hoped that I would one day hear it myself. I have seen videos, etc, and it seems no one really knows why this happens.

This afternoon while in the living room I hear chirping- real live chirping at first I thought a bird had somehow gotten into the house, but then I ran to the bedroom where our own guinea pigs live, and my little Ayla (formerly known as Gus) was chirping. I grabbed the camera so I could upload it. Isn't it perfect, she's so awesome :)

She does a great job towards the end of the middle and you can hear the dog whine because he can't figure out what her problem is. Sorry the digital camera didn't do a great job but it still got what I wanted, which was to post here and show Jason when he gets home. I hope she does it again.


  1. Out of my 16 piggies, only Miley does this. I used to think it was cool and cute too...lol Now, I think it is not so cute and cool because she does it at 3 am for an hour at a time and it is impossible to sleep through. LOL Congrats though on your chirper!!

  2. I've had several guinea pigs who have done this. Rocky does it once in a while, but it's so quiet I usually don't even realize it!

  3. How cute! None of mine chirp, but Flash is a world-champion whistler.


Special Notice:

Guinea Pigs are very social animals. If you are considering adopting one, please consider having more than one for improved health and personality.
