    Upper Levels: Re: 2x3 cage, for 2 pigs. Should I add a loft?

    I really like the idea of a shelf, my boy Winston spends most of his time sitting on top of his pigloo instead of inside it so I bet he'd appreciate it too. How do I make a shelf though?? Just fleece...

  9. Fleece: Re: List your fleece layering technique & Can someone tell me more about terry fleece

    I do fleece, then two towels. And it works pretty well, I sweep up the poops every couple days and change the bedding after a week. But I noticed poop on my pigs claws today and the amount of hair...

    Well, I suppose that's better than them being alone...I hope they bond though!
  11. Bonding: Re: How long does it take for pigs to bond (or not)?
