answer 2
Let's just say more expensive than you'd first think. I'll give you a kit list here:
-Water bottle (at least 300ml). Never supply water in bowl.
-2 ceramic food bowls (NOT plastic as they will get chewed and tipped over easily).
-Timothy/grass and alfalfa hay (the alfalfa should be mixed in with the other hay and not be fed after 7 months.
-A big cage (try and aim for at least 7.5ft sq) Almost ALL cages here are too small.
-Flat newspaper for bottom of cage (unless using fleece).
-Some bedding - fleece or Aspen wood chips are all great beddings. No straw, pine, cedar or shredded paper.
-Pellets or dry food. I recommend Oxbow Cavy Cuisine or Timothy Pellets.
-A hidey house. A plastic igloo is often recommended. I recommend a wooden one. I prefer the wood as they can be chewed on and help the teeth.
-A tube they can run through.
-A run for the grass. This isn't NEEDED, but it's great for the guinea pigs to have exercise and munch grass all day when the grass is dry and the weather is warm.
-A soft brush (I say soft because short haired pigs don't need hard brushes, and I don't recommend getting a long haired guinea pig as a beginner pet as they need daily brushing and sometimes baths).
-Pet disinfectant (for cage)
Things you may have:
-Old towels for cuddling
-Human nail clippers (guinea pigs need their nails trimmed every 4-6 weeks)
-Dust pan and brush (for cleaning out cage unless using fleece or Vet Bed)

The other answer is great, except they didn't say that the cage should be at least 7.5 square feet or else you are making your guinea pig as miserable as you would be if you were stuck in a tiny closet. Get your guinea pig a C&C cage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This cage? The answer is none. It's wayy to small to even consider housing one guinea pig for more than a day! For a healthy happy guinea pig in a better environment, please consider a bigger cage, or a C&C cage - you can get a 7.5sq ft cage for about half the price of this one! Just search C&C cage on the internet, and you should get results :)
The picture is an example of a C&C cage.

Go to Petco.com and purchase the Guinea Pig starter kit. It comes with lots of needed items like; cage, food bowl, water bottle and also comes with a bag of bedding, Timothy hay, food and a cute toy. All you need to purchase in addition is the igloo-house. I put an old fleece hat inside the igloo for our pig to cuddle up with and he loves it. The starter kit is only $40 and is an excellent deal!
Pigs are awesome!! Enjoy!

Well if you type into the internet guinea tastic, you'll get a site up that tells you everything you need to know!
Basically,
Unlimited Timothy/Meadow hay has to be available to guinea pigs at all times. It helps provide vitamin C and helps the digestive system.
Pellets or dry food is to be fed once a day in the evening. Use ceramic bowls, and have 2 if you get 2 pets. Plastic ones can easily get knocked or chewed.
Water obviously needs to be avaliable to them 24/7 and needs to be changed every day. It should be fresh, cold and have nothing in it(like vitamin drops).
Like humans, cavies don't make their own vitamic C.
You can't give guinea pigs much in the way of treats. Honey and yogurt are often popular in pet store treats, but are simply not good for guinea pigs!
Here is a list of most of the veggies and fruits you can give guinea pigs:
Red or green bell peppers - About 1/8 a day, avoid the seeds.
Broccoli - Can have quite a bit but too much cause gas.
Carrot - A lot of this will help stregthen and grind down their teeth which continue to grow all through their lives. Give 1 baby carrot every other day or the tops and tails of carrots every day.
Kale - Lots of this Vitamin C rich vegetable a day.
Romaine lettuce (not iceburg lettuce) - Iceberg is too watery and isn't at nutritious as romaine which they can eat a lot of and they love it!
Celery - Try to give them less of the long parts and more of the leaves as there is a small chance the strings may get caught in their digestive systems. If they really do like the stick, then chop it up for them so they won't choke on the strings.
Fresh grass and dandilion leaves (from garden) - Can eat plenty of this and you should get a run so they can munch and graze all day long! WARNING!! Any porducts used on the lawn/grass such as WEED KILLER can KILL THEM!!
Baby tomatoes - Only a few a week and remove the seeds first.
Parsely - Contains LOADS of Vitamin C and you can give a lot of this a day.
Cucumber - Can eat lots of and is juicy and yummy for the pigglers!
Apples/pears - Only give in moderation - it's too sugary and acidic to be fed more than once week.
Seedless grapes - Green or red grapes. HAVE to be seedless becuase they can choke on the seeds. Only a few of these a week.
Satsuma pieces - Only a few (the same as most fruit) as they are sugary and acidy and this can hurt their little lips. If you spot any sores or scabs then stop feeding them immediatley. Must be without pips.
Corn on the cob - Dried corn is unhealthy for them , so only give fresh corn and not much.
Honey, dairy, raisins, nuts, seeds, rhubarb, potatoes, mushrooms, avocados, lentils, cooked food, junk food, meat, jam and jelly are all bad, poisonous or a choking hazard to guinea pigs, so should never be fed to them. Salt licks are also bad for them too.
Please get a pair of guinea pigs. They are very sociable animals and need company from another of the same specices unless...
1) Your cage will be indoors where the guinea pigs can get constant attention and see lots of things happen and you will be always going up to it and talking to it.
2) Your guinea pig will be out for cuddles and interaction with you for 1+ hours a day, at least once a day.
Guinea pigs need a lot of space. Most people recommend at least 7.5ft sq for 1-2 guinea pigs, but a little less than this is fine as long as they come out for daily exercise and floor time.
Guinea pigs need basic toys in their cages such as cat balls, toilet tubes stuffed with hay, big tubes to run through, huts to hide in and hanging wooden toys to chew. Guinea pigs have open-rooted teeth which continue to grow throughout their lives. You may need these chopped by a vet sometimes.
Guinea pigs should have their nails clipped every 4-6 weeks. Get a vet to help you first. You should chop down as far as possible to the quick (the pink bit in the nail).
guinea pigs should have annual vet check ups. They are prey so to avoid looking weak to their predators in the wild, cavies hide their illnesses until they are on their last legs so be sharp and learn their normal behaviour. In the event of any abnormal behavior and health issues (e.g. refusing to eat/drink, blood in urine etc) you should take them to an exotics vets.
Guinea pigs can have a variety of different beddings. I recommend Carefresh or the fleece, but there are different and cheaper options too. Sawdust is bad for guinea pigs and will cause URIs. Cedar should never be used as bedding.
There are hundreds of abandoned guinea pigs so please make an effort and do adopt because EVERY animal deserves a loving home.

C&C stands for "Cubes & Coroplast" and are a type of cage you can easily build at home from supplies you can find at any department store. Most pet store cages are TOO SMALL for guinea pigs, which is why many owners have started making their own. Just use a search engine to learn more (I don't think I could post the website's link on here)

C and C cages are comprised of two things: cubes, or wire build able shelving, they come in 14x14 in. grids, and coroplast, a corrugated plastic. Ziptie the grids together, a good size is 2x4 grids. Then score, fold, and tape the coroplast until it is a box that can fit inside the grids. And thats it!
Glad you are making a C and C, your piggy will be so happy!

If you want to keep the cage, what you can do is buy a dog pen to go around it so your Guinean pigs can live in that and use the cage as their hay room or litter box area.

Please do not buy a leash for your guinea pig! They can damage a guinea pig even with one pull as they may catch themselves on it. They should be let out on the grass in a safe, sturdy, animalproof run when the weather is warm - a much safer and more free way for your guinea pig to get it's daily exercise.
