I am getting 3 boars soon so I am building a 3 by 6 c&c cage. I have some coroplast from my old hamster cage but it covers around a third of the cage. I will check the local sign shop again but couldn't find any coroplast there last time. Is there some other material I could buy at Menards, Tractor Supply, or Walmart instead of ordering coroplast?

Thanks

Any waterproof material would work. A shower curtain even, just make sure they can't get to it (ie it is well covered with whatever bedding you choose). Good luck.

I don't know if there is a Home Depot near you, but I've gotten my Coroplast from there.

Coroplast is actually a brand name. If you ask for corrugated plastic, you may have better luck. It is exactly the same design as corrugated cardboard but constructed of a lightweight plastic. It's often called Coroplast here in the US, and Coroflute overseas......probably other names as well.

Thanks, I will search for coroplast in different names. I also think I will wander around Menards to look for any kind of sheet plastic. If I don't find anything else I will try shower curtains.

Thanks all

I found a pack of five 40" by 48" sheets for $11 dollars at Staples. That is much cheaper than when I ordered the other corrugated plastic from amazon.

That's where I get mine as well. They have several different sizes.
