    Animal lover with new pigs :)

    I have three boy pigies and am hoping to upgrade them to a diy C&C and have a few questions:

    Where is the best place to get coloplast?
    Is Mazuri guinea pig diet food ok?
    Can I feed my pigs brome hay that is baled localy (it is clean,mold free,and looks and smells like it should and I freeze it before it is used)?
    And are Willow twigs ok for pigs?


    thanks for any replies

    Welcome to the forum! I hope you find all the information you need.


    1. You can get coroplast at Menards, Lowes, Home Depot, or pretty much any hardware store. We even sell some on the forum! Here is the link:https://www.guineapigcagesstore.com/coroplast-on-sale


    2. I have never heard of Mazuri, but here is what @Ly&Pigs has to say.

    4. Yes, Willow sticks are safe.

    Thank you so much!!!
    One more question do pigies use cuddle cups or are they just props, I sew and was thinking about making some but didn't know if they would use them?

    Some pigs will use cuddle cups, some won't. Cuddle cups seem pretty expensive, I like fleece forests because they are simple, inexpensive, and east to may yourself. He is a picture of a fleece forest if you are unfamiliar with what it is.
