    HI! Bigger cage?

    I'm new to this site. I have a single male who's brother just passed. i rescued them last year and am now looking for a cage mate for him. I'm working with a local rescue to find him the right girl or girls.

    I do have a question; I have a 2x4 C&C with a 2x2 loft. Is that enough space for 3? I'm not sure if I should count the loft in the grand scheme of things.

    any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Is your male neutered?

    2x5 would be better for 3 pigs, but 2x4 might work if they all get along well.

    I wouldn't put three pigs in a 2x4. Can you enlarge the pen a little?

    And ditto on the neutering. Please don't put an intact male with females.
