    Question Is a cages ever too big????

    I have had guinea pigs most of my life and always had enormous cages my largest was for my six boars a heard for 4 and two which was about 80 sq ft yes the two cages 3 levels was est 80sg ft now this was before my husband and he unfortunately don't share the same passion for my critters well a lil over a year my last baby (Cronus) past he was my oldest I ever had and was around 8 yrs old and i was absolutely devastated so i got rid of my c&c cages and all my guinea stuff i don't use with my two bunnies ( Demeter or didi and Luna) but Ive been missing have a guinea and have decsided this coming spring gonna start prepping for the new additions. Now here the question Im claming the loft and wanting to turn it into a Cavy Palace if you will and i wanna take up most of the space do any of you think this might be a lil over kill? Because Im aiming for at least what I use to have with my old cavies and maybe a li bigger because i will include add the bunnies underneath! Opionions?!?!?!?!?!

    The bigger it is, the better it is for the piggies. As long as you are willing and capable of cleaning such a big cage, it can't be too big in my opinion.

    I'm totally the same way. My piggies' cage is always clean and dry, and they get the best of all produce in our household (My husband actually double checks to make sure it's okay if he has some of the piggies vegetables )

    The only time I have seen someone take a cage down below cage size minimum was @skinnypigs1 and she only did it because her pig has arthritis so he needs to be closer to the food and water at all times she may be able to tell you more about why she did it though.
