Hi, I am adding to my herd and will soon have five sows ranging from 6 weeks to 6 years - a mom and two daughters and two older bonded sows. I have constructed a cage that is 20 sq feet (6 x 2.5 grids). It has two lofts, one 2x3 grids and the other 1x2 grids. I know the lofts don’t count toward the square footage but I’m hoping they allow for the girls to have enough personal space if needed. I am planning on rotating different enrichment items and hidey places. Does this sound big enough for these girls? I know that I may just have to wait to see how the group dynamics play out.

That should be plenty of room, although the 1x2 loft is pretty small and could result in a pig getting trapped.

Thank you! I think I could probably extend the small loft to 2x2
