Billy appeared to be alright with the babies at first, helping Mum to clean their bottoms and keeping them company when Cupcake needed to eat, but today everything took a turn for the worst. He made a random nose-strike on Cookie, pushing her/him backwards.
Needless to say Cupcake wasn’t too impressed and then went for him. After this she made frequent returns to Billy, acting aggressively.
We made the decision to separate them to keep all 6 guinea-pigs safe. Billy will live on his own until the babies are old enough to leave mum and Cupcake is once more on her own.
So for now, at least, Cupcake and Billy are separated.
