    @Pariscamp, Oh, that is unfortunate that they cost that much to ship! What options do you have in France? Yes, they don't run and I suppose they are quiet. I've never really been bothered by the sound made by piggies drinking from a water bottle.

    Oh, I see now! Our piggies are in our family room area, so I never hear them when I'm asleep. Hope you find something that works!

    This is the piggies home. We have 2 girls in here and it's a bit bigger than 10sq feet. It's sitting on the floor currently but we are gonna get something to raise it in the next week or 2.

    They love the space, they also love having their own sleeping spaces, as you can see . Olive is the black blob and Peanut is the brown piggy.

    @peachyteen, is your cage originally a playpen? If so, what kind is it? I've been wanting to get a playpen big enough for me to get in with my girls since floor time is very difficult with a toddler who loves to watch mommy play with her "babies."

    the brand is You and Me it's the "Run and Play" medium size. it's big enough to sit in with the pigs but the large would give even more space for the pigs to run in (it's not totally cramped if you're in the medium though)

    Added an upper level! We added a third pig Randy (neutered male) a month ago and unfortunately our existing girl Snickers will not accept him even after proper introductions and a buddy bath : ( So I've added an upper level to our wood cage. Randy gets the entire top level plus a small section of the main level on the left. You can see his ramp down against the far left inside wall. Snickers and Lucy get the right section of the main level, aprox 2 x 4.5 grids. I did this so they can share a grid divider wall and Randy can at least smell and talk to the girls.

    Still have to make fleece liners for the upper level and figure out water bottle and hay rack/bin placement. But really happy with this so far!

    After a couple months try a buddy bath again, a good 4-6 hours in a huge neutral area and remember a little bickering is normal. They have to work out pecking order. Unless blood/major blood is drawn, leave them be to work it out. Give them lots of piles of food and hay in the intro area.

    Thanks, I am thinking about trying it again later as you suggested. When Randy is bigger! (he's about 4-5 months old now) I mentally prepared myself for our first shot at intros and was braced for some scuffling. They were in the bathroom for 4 hours before we put them in the cage. But over the few weeks they were together, Randy got a lot of bites on the butt and a LOT of hair pulled out by Snickers. I know that's not a dealbreaker. After a week, I tried a buddy bath and it seemed to help. But last week, we come home one day and Randy has a big red raw bite just below his nose and another bad one on his butt. He has probably a dozen scabbed over bites on his butt.

    I did build the upper level in a way that I can make it all one big cage later on if they all get along (there is a hidden hole on the far right end of the upper level where I could add a second ramp).

    Yeah maybe being a baby he was bugging her too much. With my six, 2 neutered males and four sows, it was the young female that got nipped a lot, mainly by her mom, whom she was adopted with. Wait until he is full grow because he will be hard to deal with soon with his terrible teens coming.

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I have never had problemy with babies.
    Well once, because one of the adults was afraid of her, but she was weird...

    What exactly happend that made you stop the introduction? Especially when introducing boars it often got rough, because the leading sow felt threatend. Most introductions the pig with the least rank will chase around the new ones a little and the others donīt do much. With boars it always were they highest ranking sows that fought out who is boss now.
    Unless no pig has bloody wounds or is completly frightended I would just let them do. I would maybe block the second level, because they canīt really flee there when another cavy comes after them.

    And I have never ever done a buddy bath and I did a lot of introductions.
    I think all you do is stress both parties. Which surely can be helpful.
    Smell isnīt that important with guinea pigs.

    Here is my current set up. Unfortunately, I have not gotten the top for it (I plan to make one out of plywood), so they have to go back into their horrible pet store cages at night and when we are not home for safety reasons (keeps kitties and dogs from getting to them). I do try to keep them in here as much as I can though.

    The Walmart here in Pueblo has some plain blue fleece for $1.97/sqyd. They also have others for $10 or less per square foot.

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I finally finished hand sewing my new cage liner and decided to redo my cage a bit. I cut the kitchen down quite a bit as I found it was taking up precious zoomy space. I only wanted a small tray to catch all the hay that they pull out of their hay rack. Digby and Nibbler immediately did some zoomies and popcorned around when I finished. I think they like the redesign!
