    No, they don't roll any of the accessories down the ramp. They run up and down the ramp and love it! I think they like it because it is somewhere else for them to scout out. They do spend most of their time upstairs, so the pool stays cleaner longer. I put newspaper on the bottom of the pool, then shredded paper bags. I clean it every 5 days. To clean it I roll the newspaper, most of the shredded paper rolls with it or I scoop it up with a dust pan. I wash it out with vinegar and water. I have hay, pellets and water down there too. It doesn't seem to get as soiled as fast as their kitchen areas in the main cage so I can leave it a few more days. Sometimes I use towels and fleece in the pool. Thank you for asking!

    So glad you like my cage idea. This is a large pool so the sides are high and they haven't tried to climb the slide or the steps! Running up and down the ramp gives them exercise! thanks again

    Whoa! I love how it goes down into the kiddie pool! If I had a whole room to devote to my piggies, they'd definitely have something like this.

    The water bottles should not be used unless you are able to stop often to check on them... You dont want a stressed out piggy sitting on wet fleece Just my personal opinion
    Cucumber and carrots will provide enough water for the trip

    Thank you Vickiandcraig! It is good to know they can travel. I was truly worried. I'm glad to hear the water bottles did well. Thank you

    Something to consider... Water bottles don't hold up well so give him/her lots of cucumbers and carrots. Its probable enough. You should give hay.
    Thank you Skinnyguineaus. Glad to hear you were able to travel with your Guinea's and they did well. Didn't think about the water bottles though. Cucumbers and carrots are a good idea. Thank you

    I was actually reading earlier today that your supposed to give your piggies unlimited timothy hay because they don't actually store it as fat, but their bodies need it to digest food properly. As for the pellets I read on here somewhere a while ago that piggies shouldn't have it available to them all the time (but to tell you the truth, my pigs always have it available to them).
    Maybe you can give them floor space with different obstacles set up, like boxes with 2 holes cut through, or tubes to encourage more activity. Or when you give them veggies, put them in places that they have to reach for and work a bit to get the snack.
    I hope this helps you! Good luck!

    Only feed 1\8 to 1\4 of a cup of pellets a day per pig. Also don't give those pet store treats, full of fat and sugar.

    GP'S can't really go on "diets" but a large cage, plenty of exploration and a good diet will get you a healthy pig! If not they may just be naturally chubby.:P
