Hi,
I have three piggies (Girls).
I want to give them a bigger cage and would like to see how you guys house your piggies and get some ideas and inspirations.
At the moment there cage (built by me) is really small and i dont want them to be cramped and fight. it is 80 x 96 :(. I will see if i can post a pic later)
Thank you for your help :) i really want to give them a better cage.

They actually live in a hutch inside (cage I built for play and interaction as hutch in empty garage) but Might be moved outside :( but I don't want it too but that's only a maybe. Anyway i want to get them something like a c&c cage but as I said I want some ideas.
Sorry I couldnt edit my first post.

80x96 cm?

Here are some of my cages when I only had 3 pigs.

Started with 2x6 grids. (About 69 cm x 213 cm)

Changed to 3x5. (About 104 cm x 177cm) Didn't work out for me, too hard to reach the back.

Changed to L-shaped 2x8. (2x3 on one side, connected to 2x5 on the other side)

I have my 3 girls in a 2x4 with 1x2 patio and 1.5 x 2 kitchen, but once my construction is done upstairs I'd like to expand to a 2x5 or 2x6 if I can do the space.

My three girls are in a 2x5 with a little 1x1 hidey loft. I only put in the loft to house a hidey house and give a spot under it for another hidey spot. They love this! Their kitchen is also the hay box which helps keep the mess to a minimum.

I was thinkiing about having a 2x4 with a 1x2 patio or if i have the space, a 2x5 with a patio.
I could also think about a 2x6 L-shape (2x4 connected to a 2x2) but would need permision.
Thank you for you help and your pictures!!!!!
It would be great if more people could show me thier cages if possible :)

bigger is always better. If you do a smaller cage, consider adding in a kitchen with pine pellets because it will need cleaning more often and get smelly quicker.

@T (http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/member.php?u=22305)raysea OMG I love the Hello Kitty fleece! Where did you find it?

Joanns and I used a 40% off coupon because it's licensed fleece, it cost about 14.95 a yard! So get what you need in one trip and always use that coupon!!! You can download the mobile app and they will scan the barcode right off your phone. I don't think I have ever seen it online though, only in the store. They have other ones too.

P.S. Im in NY too. On Long Island, if that helps!
