I just want to double check that my girls cage is big enough for them all. I have six girls living in one cage and it is a 5X3 bottom with a 3X4 top.
Is this ok?!

Thanks! xx

My gosh, the are so cute. Like a little herd. Makes me want to have more than my two but then I think of cleaning the cage and I think, "nevermind." Just curious what you're using for the bedding - looks like pine or aspen but is there anything underneath?

I admit that the cleaning out its a big task... I'm always worn out by the end, but its worth it!

what you're using for the bedding
I orginally used just plain sawdust, but it made them sneeze so much that I changed to Dengie Medi Bed. It is basically chopped up fine peices of straw, its very soft and cheap. It is dusty when it comes out of the packet but it's fine once its been put in the cage, I have yet to hear them sneeze! :) I don't put anything else under it though.

Amazing cage! How do they get onto the second floor though. I'm worn out after cleaning my 2x4, so I don't know how you manage to clean yours! :)

I think they get onto the second floor by climbing up the fiddle sticks. How long does it take to clean the cage? It looks like it would be hard to get under the second level. Its an amazing cage though! Your piggies must be in heaven!

Thats a great cage. I like how you expanded the top level past the width of the bottom level. Great idea.
