    How Old Until No Baby Proof?

    I just asked this as I just got a 4 week old female. I the answer I found was 6 months but I am assuming that it depends on the size of the pig also. My male was 3 months and was HUGE but my female is tiny. I think there is some common sense that comes into play with the timing.

    I just made 3 tunnels and my pigs love them but I was wondering if there was any place less expensive for foam? I was paying 9.99 a yard for 1/2 in foam. Let me know what you all have used in the past. Thanks!

    Keeping the cozie/sleeping bag open

    I have a made a few cozie/sleeping bags for my pigs and I have tried using only fleece which didn't stay open so my pigs used it as a bed instead of going in side. I also tried 2 layers of thin batting which worked ok but when it came out of the dryer it is a mess and all bunched up. Anyone...

    Grids Frustrated!

    I have the B B and B grid (ok 3 boxes now) and I LOVE them. They work well but I got rid of all my connectors as they don't hold as well as the 400 zip ties I have on my cage now. I have an escape artist and have to have everything very tight. During floor time she picks up a wall of 5 grids...
