    Need Advice - Don't Want Pigs to be Cold, New Cage with Fleece

    Thanks to this awesome forum we ordered a new, extra large cage today with fleece flippers. Our pigs have been in a smaller cage with bedding and a house like a pigloo but bigger. Our house tends to be on the colder side and I think the bedding has done a good job of keeping them warm. My question - With the houses (we'll have two now in the new cage) on top of fleece flippers do I need to put something else in their houses to keep them warm? We will only have bedding in the cavy kitchen and I don't want them to be cold. I'd like to find different house that they will like too, although they do like to climb on top of the current ones. Thanks!

    They'll be fine. If they've got hideys that aren't too much larger than they are, their body heat will warm up the area.

    GPs are just little balls of fat and fur. Unless they're skinnies, you don't have to worry much about them getting cold.

    Good to know, thanks! We have them in walk up barns so maybe we'll go a little smaller.
