    Need grids/cubes and coroplast but cant find anywhere in England!

    I'm looking to make my first ever C&C cage for my three girlies, though it'll have to be split half way through as currently one of them don't get along with my 8 week old guinea pig.

    Does anyone know decent places that are cheap ish which sell the grids/cubes and coroplast is it? I can't seem to find the coroplast anywhere, let alone the grids/cubes. Only reason I'm saying cheap ish is I've currently got family problems in which we're currently low on money but my girlies need a bigger place to run around in etc.

    I don't drive, so it needs to be online stores. I have found this: http://www.grendle.co.uk/web/index.p...53&search=cube but it's a bit expensive... And well out of my budget at the moment.

    I'd also need to find some sort of fleecing? Where would I be able to find this in the UK?

    I'm looking to make a 2x8 C&C cage (I'm not sure on this as it's my first time with a C&C cage)

    You probably can't buy coroplast on line because the shipping would be prohibitive because of the size. But I think it's called correx there, so googling it might turn up something. There's also a searchable database over at Guinea Pig Zone, and you might find something there. Or, you can use a shower curtain, lineoleum, or anything waterproof on the bottom. You just have to protect it so the pigs won't eat it.

    Fleece is available at fabric stores.

    I still think you can put that eight week old in with the others. It's VERY rare for sows not to accept a baby, and a little squabbling is to be expected.

    Thank-you for this. And I put her in with them, only one of them accepted her though... My other one ended up biting her causing her to bleed so I removed her from the cage immediately...

    Did you read the link I posted for you about introductions? http://guinea-pigs.livejournal.com/3002707.html You can't just put a pig in with other pigs and expect there not to be some aggression.

    You can buy cubes from Amazon. This one offers free shipping.

    Correx

    Looks like this one offers free postage.

    I have found Correx and the cubes/grids and it's got about 26 cubes/grids & 32 connectors for like £35.99 and the Correx: £15.40 Thanks everyone for your advice etc, I'll be buying this the end of next month when I have a bit more money and can then make my first C&C cage!
    I've also gone an bought some fleeces ready for when I build my C&C cage... c; Thanks everyone.
