    Question Can a fleece forest replace hidey's?

    I finally got around to making a fleece forest for my 3 boars. It's a big fleece forest (3 grids wide) and it goes along the side wall of their cage. The hidey's were taking up so much room, and while their 3x4 gives them plenty of room... the hidey's were taking up a lot of their running space. They seem to love the fleece forest and have been hanging out in it all day I haven't heard any rumbling or anything and the cage looks so much bigger now that the big hidey's are gone.

    I'm no expert... so I wanted to get you guys' input. Is this okay? They've also got a llitter box covered with two hay racks that they use as a hidey as well.

    I have a Fleece Forest in Poppy's run and he preferres(sp?) it to hides. I think because he has some privacy and can burst through it when doing his laps.

    I think it can be used as a hidey, if it's a spot that the pig feels secure. My pigs run under it when they get scared. If it's chilly in the house, the pigs might want something more cozy though.

    Both my pigs love their fleece forests. I always keep 2 forests in the cage and then rotate other things like cabins, cozy cups, and fleece tunnels. They use their fleece forests the most, though!

    I love fleece forests! Radley has one in her cage that I made from a little drying rack for the kitchen that I bought at the dollar store. She loves it! I am going to made a fleece forest out of the bent grid tunnel I already have

    Yeah, fleece forests can look a bit different. My version of a fleece forest is this: Etsy Transaction - Guinea Pig Fleece Forest Corner Cave w/ Fleece Fringe -- Pink Hearts (M)

    Sometimes people call them corner lairs, if they make them for a corner (obviously).

    I was wondering what a fleece forest was, but once I see the picture-the name fits!
    I like it

    I'm glad others are using them! My pigs are still relaxing in the forest. I think they like that they can all get in together while still having their own space.
