    Breeder block hutches

    Look how small these cages are http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/angelus_stud I can't spot any hay either. Click on 'housing'.

    Yuck...hardly enough room to turn around and lie down. Very sad.

    Oh my! This girl just joined one of my forums- and never said anything about being a breeder! She said she was a rescue and had 40+ pigs- but I know those pictures anywhere!

    She does mention C&C cages, yet she doesn't use them!

    One particular plastic cage on the market — it has a solid bottom, then a clear plastic top that curves up, with a small wire opening at the top. Some people do not recommend these types of cages but I like them, for young piglets bouncing around flicking wood shaving about.
    Wow, notice how she recommends the cages with the least possible ventilation! What an ignorant fool.

    I know - she just wants to save on cleaning up, how selfish

    Re: Breeder block hutches

    I agree. Maybe i am generalizing and sorry if i am, i am just very angry right about now. From what cavy breeders and showers i have heard of, the ones i have talked about on these forums anyway, seem to have become so preoccupied in winning and making money, they have forgotten the real joy of having a cavy in your life. They do not focus on the guinea pig's care as much as they should from what i've seen.

    Re: Breeder block hutches

    It's sad to say but I really don't think you are generalising, I think the majority of breeder's are exactly like you said.. they are not concerned with the overall wellbeing of the piggy they are breeding and showing.

    Re: Breeder block hutches

    I know her too. Used to go to Pimms Pages, now I'm hardley ever on there. They are pro-breeding, and although some of the membres are very nice, the majority thinks that small cages and mixes are OK for piggies.
    I don't think that we should provide the site link (it's not Just PimmsPages.com) for privacy reasons, really. We shouldn't take an argument over there, either. If she knows what C&C cages are, I doubt she'll stop using the hutches. She had (I think) 17 pigs die from somewhere around October to January. Sad, really.
    I don't really want to stereotype breeders either, but I think we're right. Most don't really care about the space or welfare of the pigs. We should jam them into closets for the rest of their lives.

    Re: Breeder block hutches

    I was actually speaking of a different forum, but out of respect for the great people on there, I'd rather not share that. She hasn't been about more at any rate.

    Oh, she must be on more than Pimms. Well, she was on a lot over there, don't know if she still is. I remember going to her site before.

    Gosh how tiny are they! And I thought some of the other Breeder Block cages I've seen were small!

    These pictures are so sad. Not only are the piggies in small housing but who is to love them. It hurts my heart. Poor piggies!

    Hey salana, I don't think she'd join my forum. I'm waiting for the first breeder to ignore the warnings.

    I really do not appreciate how breeders view living, breathing creatures as "stock", like merchandise.

    Yes I recognise her from that site, I wasn't aware that she was claiming to be a rescuer though. That said, a lot of the breeders seem to telling all and sundry that they also rescue...it's starting towear a bit thin with me.
    I haven't been on Pimms Pages for a good while now, I was banned because I was too vocal re my anti breeding sentiments....says it all really.

    oh that is so sad! especially the stacked "hutches for the boys"... what a miserable little existence, especially for such adorable little pigs.

    Seeing as she has 30-40+ pigs, I bet she doesnt have enough time to feed and fill all the water bottels in one day, and def. not enough to spend even 5 mins with each pig...

    Re: Breeder block hutches

    I don't like it, I wouldn't put my guinea pigs anywhere near it. On the other hand, the residents of the cages don't exactly look neglected (though I suppose we don't know what's going on behind the scenes).

    Um whats wrong with those cages, mine are the same size. They have the recommended 2 square foot per piggie, as recommended by Seagulls Guinea Pig Compendium.
