My guinea pig won't stop biting the other one's ears. This has been going on for a week. Mom says if we can't figure out what to do about this, we're... we're going to have to give the biter away. I will become very depressed if that happens. I love both of them a lot!

 

*starts crying*

 

They're both males and about 14 months old, which means that they'll be adults in a week or too. What should I do?

eat them. They taste like chicken.

Sorry about the biting. Closest thing I know is a hamster, and they are quite different from guinea pigs.

Guinea pigs aren't always nice to cage mates. If it's one doing it frequently (judging by your post, that's the case) then he may be trying to start a fight and/or establish dominance. 

Your biter may not just be compatible with other guinea pigs. The best thing to do is to get a separate cage for the biter, then place the two cages next to each other. He may not like sharing space, but guinea pigs are always happier when they have a buddy nearby.

They'd been together for a year before this started. Also, One started biting the other the night before they were moved to the basement. We tried putting the biter in a separate cage, but he went crazy trying to get out.

Yes, the tube we got them the day we bought them, and a playpen hay rack.

This may be different than what you think... How does the other one react while being bitten?

The best thing you can honestly do is either get another cage to keep him in or give the biter away, I’m very sorry, but this could kill the one that doesn’t bite eventually. Also, why would you get two males, males can be territorial.

We got the biter another cage. They still try to touch each other through the bars. The biter wants to bite the other one, and the other one is just curious. (Btw, when the other one was bitten, he squealed really loud)

No, I was wrong. This is usual territorial male behavior. Another cage should work. If not, I am very sorry Topaz. :(

Well, you should probably have two SEPERATE cages... from what it sounds like they are right next to each other...

They should at least be aware of one another's presence.

I do not know the first thing about guinea pigs but I have parakeets and if your parakeets fight you are supposed to rearrange the entire cage so it is like a new cage and then supposedly they will not try to be dominant quite so much. Maybe you could try that.
