    Liners: Piggy bedspreads vs cage liners

    I've been using piggy bedspreads, but these ones have taken a bit of a beating and are look a little old. So I'm weighing up my options;
    - Disposable bedding - have used carefresh for the past week...
  2. Re: Need a crash course on bunnies ASAP please

    Thank you for taking him in :)

    Cage - I'd keep his tiny bunny cage and use it as a home base. If you have a spare room that he could free range in that would be optimal. The bunny cage can be used...
  3. Re: Building a C&C for my sisters Bunny! Tips?

    Kudo's on doing such a great thing for your sister's bunny!

    Does he get much free range time? How big is he? I'd probably go a 2x5 at least, with free range time for 4-5 hours on top of that. If...

    Re: Do you like the cage I built?

    I think it's great as a home base but would never ever shut him up in it. There is no where near enough floor room for him to move with ease. As a minimum, it should be four times the length of him...

    General: Re: GP care compared to rabbit care

    I've had rabbits for 2 years now, and guinea pigs for 5 years. In my experience guinea pigs are far easier to look after!!

    Differences;
    - Rabbits shed bucket loads of hair, guinea pigs shed hair...

    Re: Planning a C&C Cage for a rescued rabbit.

    She is gorgeous!

    Once she's all settled, you might want to consider getting her a friend. Bunnies are sociable critters, and like guinea pigs, do enjoy the company of a same species animal. Often...

    Re: Rabbit c&c cage help!

    84" x 56" is a good starting point. It provides roughly 7ftx4.5ft of space which comes to 31.5sq ft. The general rule of thumb for two (small - medium sized) rabbits is at least 36sq ft. So I would...

    Fleece: Re: Piggy Bedspreads: Worth it or not?

    Cage: Re: One cage above of the other?

    We got aluminium tubes in 180cm pieces from the hardware store. Using a hand saw, we cut the tubes to size (was easy to do), and then used 3 way and 4 way corner pieces to join the whole thing...

    Maybe that is the problem. I have been trying to post a cage photo. I haven't tried a pig photo.

    Cage: Re: One cage above of the other?

    My cage is made with an aluminium frame and is incredibly sturdy. It is also on wheels so mobile. The guinea pigs are in the top two cages, and the grids along the front fold down for easy access....

    Re: Rabbit Cage Sizes?

    I agree that it is essential that they are spayed. Not only does it reduce the level of hormones (thus making it far easier to bond) but rabbits have a 80% chance of developing uterine cancer by the...

    Joy: Re: Piggies + Snow = ?

    I wouldn't recommend it. In temps which are already cold, having snow around your guinea pigs is pretty risky. Guinea pigs are quite fragile, and require temperatures between 65F-75F. They don't...

    Re: cavy rescues in wa

    This is your other option but they do not have any branches in WA. They are happy to ship interstate - so you can look into doing it that way. It can get a little pricey though.

    At the moment there is no specific guinea pig rescue in W.A. However there are rabbit rescues which sometimes get guinea pigs in. Awhile ago, one of the rescues had this baby guinea pig up but they...

    You can measure it with a 30cm ruler. Just mark where the ruler ends, and then move the ruler up until it hits that mark. Count up the number of 30cm's you get and you should be able to work it out....

    C&C: Re: Finally built a C&C Cage!!! :)

    The OP should be able to fit 4 sows in.
    2x3 = 1 boy or 2 sows
    2x4 = 2 boys, or 3 sows
    2x5 = 3 boys or 4 sows

    It isn't ideal but it is the minimum. I had the minimum sized cages for a year,...
