  1. Supporting the Upper Levels

    Supporting the Upper Levels

    Thanks to an idea I saw in one other members cage, we used wooden beams to hold up the upper levels without any need for support grids. I am glad! Over the years and previous designs, me and support grids don't see eye to eye. :)

    Why so many piggies...lots of rescues round here. I didn't think I could extend the previous design but turned out I could, hence the two new pigs. No more room now! Another new cage design in the pipeline though. :D

    crazycarrot, all the cages provide more room than the minimum guidelines on this website! Small would be 2x3 per pair of pigs, these have 2x5.

    The carpet gets washed every 6 months or so, though veggie stains are a much bigger problem than urine! Poops are easily swept/vacuumed up. :)

    Thanks all. Sadly she died on 4 January. I miss her beauty and attitude, she was a truly unique pig.

    Comment by 'cavy-cool-crazy' in media 'Divided Cage'

    It is divided because I have two separate groups of neutered boys and girls. They don't get on when all six girls are involved, plus one of the girls does not get along with other girls. So I have one neutered boy and one girl in the 2x3, and one neutered boy and five girls in th 4x3. Very...

    The lower level did get dark, I eventually had the larger number of pigs in the upper level with just two pigs at the bottom. Less mess, less dark. This is an 'old' cage design though, the current one is an open divided 3x7.

    I bought it from the rescue I adopted from, it's held together with brackets but it just 4 individual panels, with a hinged lid. I let the group of 6 in this run and the group of 2 in a smaller run. The pig in the photo is Tuppence, we lost her in January 09.

    Goodbye Tanuki

    Bless him. The first picture is beautiful. I'm so sad to read that you have lost Tanuki. I had been wondering for some time how you and your dear little piggies were doing. *Hugs* to you Sari. xx

    It's the milky discharge which pigs use to groom themselves with.
