So in 2 days I will be receiving my 23 grids for my C&C cage. I know I want to incorporate my Midwest to be combined with the C&C cage so does anyone have any idea on what to do with them?

16 grids, you can make a 2x6's perimeter. This is without a bottom. Or, go wider and make a 4x3 with 16 grids again. These are for perimeters though. I'd need a piece of paper as I'm visual to sketch up a actual cage design. ^^

Here are a couple of ideas that use exactly 23 grids each. On each one, there's a side with no grids, that's the side that you attach the midwest to.
2x4 with 2x2 loft:http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/07/31/u6y7aja3.jpg
3x5 with 1x3 loft: http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/07/31/uhejebez.jpg

I wouldn't recommend a 1 by anything if you have more than one pig living in there

How do you do that? Is it a special program you use? Please let me know! Thanks.

It's called Sketchup, it's free to download from sketchup.com. I like using it to make cage models so I can see what I'm doing and what materials I'll need.

Thanks! I'll probably do the 2x4 with 2x2 loft. I like how it looks plus I can put my hay and food under the loft for easy access!

Be careful though, think of how it's gonna be getting underneath the loft. I would suggest making the loft poke out one grid, one grid inside the cage, one outside. Then take two extra, ( or one centered, but two adds most support) and catty corner it on the back , ( outside the cage) to hold it up.
I can draw it up for you if that doesn't make any sense lol.

It'll look like what Pigger123 posted which is what I think you're saying.
