If you can guess, the biggest responsibility of Silkie guinea pig owners is hair upkeep. Unlike other long-haired guinea pigs, silkies' hair is soft to the touch and needs daily grooming and spot cleaning. Guinea pig owners also add vitamin c tablets to their diet since they don't produce the vitamin on their own.

Do you feel like you need a diva in your home? A Silkie, with their beautiful, luscious locks, makes a great pet!
