According to this site ( http://en.allexperts.com/q/Guinea-Pi...Guinea-Pig.htm ) it is six months ....

They will reach sexual maturity at about 3-4 months, but full adulthood is at about 6 months.

For the most part your Guinea pig is about done growing.It will "fill out" abit more though.Do you know how much your pig weighs?They can hit 3 pounds and sometimes upwards of that.
