Big movements and sounds will scare them so if you have to move, move slowly. You have to watch them carefully so they don't go sticking their nose in a electrical outlet or something. Your guinea pigs will be scared of you when you pick them up to take them to let them run around. Don't think they don't like you though, they just are jumpy little creatures and they take time to get used to you. Please comment on how I can make my blogs better.

Free Time for Your Guinea Pigs
I suggest you get a big cage for your guinea pigs. Really big. They need room to run around, but however big your cage is, it's still a cage. You need to take them out EVERYDAY to give them exercise. Find a space where there isn't much for them to chew on because they are very inquisitive creatures. My guinea pigs are big scaredy-cats (no offense Slinky and Twinkie) and they like hiding. So I got old shirts for them to hide in until they decided to be explorers. I gave them a hallway to look around in. They still haven't gone down the whole hallway but they're close.
