Chewing Chewing On Plastic Tube.......... AGAIN

Well, Big Sis' has been driving me nuts! I really don't care that she is chewing her tube, but the noise is what bothers me.

I need to get her to stop, as I know it isn't healthy as well. I have tried Vinegar and stuff, and they worked for a bit, but still.......

I was wondering if the binder edging was flexible? Can I just let her chew, I mean really, she only chews in spurts and sometimes not at all. I just hate the noise.......

She has plenty of hay and she chews on her house a ton. I actually just chew-proofed the rest of her Coroplast wall that way she didn't chew on that. Cardboard rolls are what I used.

Replacing the current ramp may have to be my option at this point. The one I have now looks perfect, but I believe I will have to change it anyway because my Piggies aren't full sized yet. What ramp alternatives are there? Also, I need to have it closed on top. How can I do this?

Thanks!
 
What about this ramp? :

Oh wait, you said it needs to be closed...
just curious, why?

You could try this style:

Just bend grids and zip tie them for the top, and you could use a book cover to make it more covered.
 
Do they have anything to chew on for fun? I bought apple twigs for them, and little wooden chew blocks. They still chew on the coro, but less since they have something else.

I always see those apple sticks. I never sprung to buy them though. I think I am gonna just get a new ramp. Thanks though!
 
My pigs used to always chew on the coro and their pigloos. I invested in those little ware willow tunnels and balls and its stopped completely. It's likely just boredom for her.
A new ramp cant be a bad idea either though. :)
 
I got the new ramp made.

Impressed by it! I will post pictures soon.
