GUESTBOOK


When all the available articles have been added (some are still being prepared), this area will almost certainly be the most important part of this website. It contains an invaluable wealth of knowledge and advice about keeping, breeding and exhibiting Agoutis Cavies from many of the foremost exhibitors of the breed. Articles date from the 1920s to the present day.

Not surprisingly, some of the writers contradict each other - for example on the use of dilute boars - but this does not mean that either is wrong! Cavy keeping and breeding is not an exact science, after all. Their advice is based on their own extensive experience and what has been successful for them. Different strains respond in different ways. Read the accumulated wisdom of hundreds of years of effort, take on board what seems right for you and try it for yourself!
