    Biting cage

    Hi,

    My piggies wonít stop biting the bars of the cage all the time, they come out all the time, they have fresh food, water and plenty of toys and room so I donít understand why they keep on biting the bars? Any advice?

    The easiest way to keep them from doing that, and saving yourself the money for their dental bills in the process, is to line the inside of the cage with plexiglass to a high enough level that they can't reach the bars.

    If they only do it at the sides of the cage closest to the kitchen, you may be able to get away with only lining those.

    But biting can also be a sign of boredom. How large is the cage? and how many pigs are in it?
