  3. Pellets: Re: Changing Pellet Brands: Sherwood Pellets (Yay or Nay?)

    I was curious about this since -- for my rabbits -- I've been a fan of Sherwood pellets. I've not looked closely at their piggie pellets.

    Based on calcium alone, it seems that the KMS pellets are...

  5. Pellets: Re: Changing Pellet Brands: Sherwood Pellets (Yay or Nay?)

    Is there a reference somewhere that shows the nutritional recommendations for guinea pig pellets? The links I found at the Guinea Lynx site are mostly too outdated to actually link to anything. The...
  6. Fleece: Re: Thinking of making a fleece liner and need tips and help!

    The canvas waterproof fabric in your link looks like a very tough fabric that may be difficult to sew but I have not used it before. Typically PUL is the type of waterproof fabric used for such...

  9. Re: I知 babysitting a rabbit and I have some questions

    It sounds like she hasn't been fed appropriately. Pellets mixed with colorful bits and dried veg/fruit is considered junk food. No wonder she's overweight. She should be on plain pellets but it is...

    Hay: Re: Should the hay be sealed?

    Bear in mind also that hay keeps best in dark places. The sun or light will make it lose its green color. Dry and dark is ideal.

    Fleece: Re: which would be better?

    When choosing how to layer your Zorb, bear in mind what it's use will be or what you want it to do. If you are trying to keep the bottom of the cage dry (underneath the piggie bedspread) then you may...

    Fleece: Re: which would be better?

    I used the material called Zorb. It can be used as a middle layer between 2 layers of fleece, OR, you can sew a spread that has a layer of fleece, Zorb under that, and PUL fabric under that. The PUL...

    Hay: Re: Compressed hay for pigs?

    I like to buy fresh bales from a feed store -- rather than hay that is packaged in plastic. A bale weighs over 100 lbs and is super cheap (about $16). I get it when it looks green and fresh. It's...

  19. Cage: Re: Leaking water bottles ruining our cage, whats a good non leak bottle we can use?

    Yeah. Need a heavy ceramic bowl. (or the kind that twists into a clamp)
  20. Cage: Re: Leaking water bottles ruining our cage, whats a good non leak bottle we can use?

    I kept a bowl below the spout of the water bottle (I also used fleece). They then had the option of drinking the drips in the bowl as well. Kept my fleece dry!
