    Upper Levels Loft Support ideas?

    I just don't see the OP having an option to go vertical with a dowel, the Home Depot store would have to cut the ends at 45 degree angles and still keep the proper length for maximum support

    Upper Levels Loft Support ideas?

    Ziptieing or otherwise really securing a few 1/4 inch diameter(or whatever you can find that's not flimsy) from the far edge of the loft to the bottom of the cage should be fairly simple, I can try and draw a picture if my description made no sense. I'd play around with some idea's on the...

    Biting Help! I have a biter!

    My pigs don't bite me, but they bite the other members of family(they live in my room based on my parents orders and the fact that I am in my room more than any other place in the house) and it seems like they bite them because they don't know who they are like they know me. I also did say ow...

    Cage What to build??

    I found that starting with just a basic rectangle 2x4(2x5 is what you are going to want to work up to with two boars as it may help reduce friction between them if you can give them the most space you can) was the easiest for me to get into the C&C. I got my pigs when they were about 3 weeks old...

    Grooming Any hints on brushing/combing?

    Pet her as you are brushing if she likes being pet, and let her eat some of her favorite veggies. Not the same situation but it is the ONLY way I can do my piggies nails is to let them have as much of their favorite veggies as they want.

    Cage Help on cages

    Here's a picture of my cage I have a devider up because I have a boy and a girl, but when the boy gets neutered it will become just a grid that I have cut and filed/smoothed the bottom half off to support the lid because as you can see my moms cat is curious. So you can see the off set grids so...

    Cage Help on cages

    For an average 2x4 C&C I think most people are between 30-50$. My cage alone was probably 70$ but I had to put it on a grid stand and make it 100% cat proof, I am not sure what the cage was exactly because of all of the accessories I have gotten for my room that were going to be part of the...

    how much would you say is too much to pay for a guinea pig?

    At a rescue I would probably pay way more than 20$ because of the good deeds they do as long as the money is going to help the animals and not line a corporations pocket book. I don't put a price on a living thing, meaning I am giving the rescue or the shelter funds so they can continue saving...

    Good ways to earn money?

    Lemonade Stand or Hot cocoa/Cider stand(since autumn/winter is here) kids in my town still do this and have lots of success, find a mildly busy(but safe) corner and set up shop, with a plastic folding table and a catchy sign "Chase away the Chill" or something, and charge 1$ per cup
