    Gunieas and first look at new cage in the making

    Hey every one I wanted to introduce my trio of boars Theseus, Perseus, and Hercules (enjoying there veggie time). And give ya'll a first look at my new cage for them in the making! They are in a temp cage roughly a 2x4 1/2 grid on puppy pad just for the moment and changed daily. But the new cage will be much much much bigger (the whole loft) and just in case if you are wondering the lower level is for my bunnys.

    It looks huge. Is it going to be able to hold the weight, or handle the pigs running around?

    That's a LOT of expensive PVC piping!

    What will you use for the walls of the cage?

    Actually, no, the coroplast does not stain. I've had white coroplast in my cage for years, and it's as white as the day I put in in there.

    And coroplast is not nearly strong enough for the walls of the cage. If they lean against a long run of coroplast, it will bow out and let them fall out of the cage. You'll have to have top rail made out of something, and attach the coroplast to it.
