I found these at my nearest Walmart and i do not know if they are okay for my guinea piggie Get Honey Can Do Modular Mesh Storage Cubes at Walmart.com. Save money. Live better.

Some of those grids are 5 squares which pigs can escape through I have these Safco Wire Cube Shelving System - Walmart.com (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Safco-Products-Wire-Cube-Shelving-System-15w-x-15d-x-15h-Black/14626491?findingMethod=rr) they are 9 squares which are the safe ones.
I'm not in the US so someone else may be able to point you to another store for them :)

Yeah, I agree with Iklepink, the 5 square ones are super dangerous. I would go with the Safco ones, they're really good.

I use these grids. I use the 5x5 grids against the wall with no more than 1 inch in between. The 8x8 grids I use in spaces where the piggies can easily get out. I had pics but my camera stopped working

The 8 space ones aren't safe, either. They can stick their head through and not be able to pull it back out and strangle. Only the 9 space ones are safe.

Whitmor White Wire Storage Cubes, Four Cubes Interlocked - Walmart.com (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Whitmor-White-Wire-Storage-Cubes-Four-Cubes-Interlocked/5005200?findingMethod=Recommendation:wm:RecentlyVi ewedItems)
These are what I have. They are 9x9 inner cubes. 17 a pack, for only about $22. The black cubes are more expensive for some reason(+$4 per pack.)

Or if your Sears carries these : Stor Floor Standing 6-Cube Storage Unit - Tools - Garage Organization & Shelving - Storage Hooks (http://www.sears.com/stor-floor-standing-6-cube-storage-unit/p-00913332000P?prdNo=3&blockNo=3&blockType=G3) Or you can order them online. They have 9 inner cubes, but are 13.8 inches unlike the normal 14inches. I do not think it would really matter, as long as the holes are smaller/the same. This pack has a bit more cubes than the Walmart pack.

My pigs are a little on the larger side.....

Doesn't matter. It's their heads that get caught, not their bodies. The 8 space ones are dangerous. You can overlap them so they'd be safe.

Thank you....
I have overlapped my grids
