Hi!

So I am adopting two piggies next month and I wanted to make a C & C Cage...... well not exactly I wanted to make a cage with wire shelving as the sides. Can anyone tell me how? Thanks for the help!

Can you post a link of the kind of wire shelving you're wanting to use?
I'm fairly certain that the grids used in C&C cages are considered wire shelving.
Chances are that you can just connect them using zip ties, but pictures of what you're planning on using would be helpful so we can tell you if they might get their heads stuck in it or anything like that.

You can ask the hardware store (Home Depot, Lowes, etc) to cut the shelves to the length you need. Then use cable ties to tie them together at the corners.

For coroplast, just follow the instructions on this page.

two thumbs up on adoption and two more toes up on doing your research before that happened :D
the others here have pretty much answered your questions, but if you state your country/state people MIGHT be able to point you to specific stores :) depends who reads!

I love the little lip with the shelves.
