I got my first boar last July when he was 3 months old. A few months later, I got him a brother around October of last year, at the time he was also 3 months. My first boar is now 11 months and 9 inches long. While my second one is now 8 months and only 6 inches. They have a regular supply of oxbow pellets and timothy hay, as well as veggies. But they've been this size since December and I'm worried they aren't getting their needed nutrition.

Please advice.

Have you been weighing weekly? Are you sure both are getting adequate food? Sometimes one guinea pig will prevent the other from eating as much as it wants to. Read over www.guinealynx.info/weigh.html to help evaluate the smaller guinea pig's condition.
