    As many as the store owner will give. I'd hold out for a minimum of 3.

    Oh chicks here are sold at full price for 5-6 dollars in the sgv. Some are even cheaper elsewhere must be boys. But considering the guinea pig is bought at full price like $29.99 or less and the food is so expensive but used. Added up u say I get a minimum o three? Or idk what... I don't think it will be traded will it?

    I'd just talk to the store manager or owner and see what they are willing to do.

    Ok I say possibly 5 that I like :) cus theres 1-one bag of hay + 1-one bag of bedding + 1-one bag of pebbles all used but not used badly. AND the *guinea pig. Do you think five is too overboard or too less hm? Oh I could include the water bottler too
