    Cage Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    This is my newest. I've had the cage a few weeks but finally got the fleeces in. The forest is on the lid so it makes a nice hidey when the lid is down. :)

    How do you find fleeces and coroplast to fit??

    Coroplast When you add on a grid...?

    I have four sows in a 2x4 at the moment. They are 7 weeks old so it doesn't feel like a bad situation yet but I know I need to expand.

    Coroplast When you add on a grid...?

    How do you adjust the coroplast? I bought the expensive kind from gpcages.com and I love it, but it's only a few weeks old and I bought too many guinea pigs, so I'm needing to expand. Wondering if there's a cheaper option, like just getting a small piece and taping the two together, or if I...

    Diet For those feeding pellet-free

    I don't have a scale in my house, so I have no idea what they weigh. They are HUGE guinea pigs in general, twice the size of my Abyssinian that I used to have, but the guy said they had a big dad. They aren't fat, just a tiny bit chubby. He was giving them several heads of romaine each day...

    Diet For those feeding pellet-free

    How much veggies, etc are you giving to your piggies? I have four in one cage and they are NOT pellet free but don't seem to eat many pellets (they are still offered) but I wonder if I'm feeding them enough veggies. Well, they are chubby girls anyway, but still...I want to make sure. I just...

    Zero to Eight in 2 Weeks

    Thank you!! And do you feel that 2x10 is big enough for the 8 pigs, or no? I have plenty of grids. Just need to adjust coroplast.

    Zero to Eight in 2 Weeks

    I'm not new to guinea pigs, but after my last one died I took a few years off. I just got one a few weeks ago, felt badly about not getting two, went back two days later and got the sister. A few days later I went on CL and fell for a sob story and ended up with five more. Meanwhile I had two...

    C&C Help with bad math skills...4x4 vs 2x4, etc

    Yes, well, when you are 32 you may not remember it anymore. When you don't use formulas they are easily forgotten. I never measure things...I'm a book author.

    C&C Two cages next to each other?

    Hi, I have two pigs and I'm getting 5 more today (it's a rescue situation). After the 14 day quarantine period, is it okay to put them in cages next to each other or with a divider? Does that make the transition to one cage easier b/c they know each other through the bars? They're all...

    C&C Help with bad math skills...4x4 vs 2x4, etc

    If I build a 4x4 instead of my 2x4, how many square feet will that give me and how many pigs would work in that space? I have sows. Thanks!

    Fleece For those with fleece flippers...

    Do you put a flipper under the "kitchen" or litter box area? I have the kitchen from guineapigcages.com and I wonder if I need a flipper under it or if I can save the $ and skip that part of the cage. Thanks.

    C&C 2x8 Cage Help!

    Call me crazy but I'm taking in FIVE guinea pigs today. They are currently living in a 2x8 C&C cage. I'm wondering a few things. 1) If my 2 girls get along with them, can I combine the cage with my 2x4 or should I just house them separately? 2) Can there be "too many" as long as you have...

    C&C 2x4 for 2 and Getting More...WWYD?

    I got a 2x4 which includes stand, lid, and coroplast. Now I'm rescuing two more pigs and if all goes well they will all 4 be in one cage. What size would you do for 4 baby sows? Keep in mind we have a cat and would prefer one story of cage, but I'm fine with an L shape. Some things I've...
