If I get two guinea pigs, would I need two water bottles? Also would I need two hay racks, two food bowls, two litter boxes.. etc

If money is an issue, bend a grid into a semi circle, cover in fleece. Makes the perfect hidey, we always have enough extra fleece to cover one and you can color coordinate with the cage. It has two ends so they can get out. ANd mine will each sleep on a different end.If they don't want to share a pigloo then it won't matter how big it is, one will still get chased out. Either get two or you can start with one and use a small cardboard box to make another.
Each of my pigs had their own sleeping/hiding space. One took a pigloo, one took the hid-a-way, one slept under the hayrack and one slept under the bent grid tunnel I made. The only time they would all crowd into one space to hide is when I was trying to gather them all up to get them out of the cage for cleaning or grooming.
One piggie would settle near one end, with his little head peeking out; and the other would burrow his way behind the block and plop his body where the tent met the floor, so that it the cloth curved round and under him. The fleece was therefore stretched around his little body making a lovely pig-shaped lump.
Ohhh...those lovely pig-shaped "lumps" are so precious, aren't they ?!!:heart:
I change their cage around a lot and there is always at least one fleece tent, along with other hideys. Pigs like a change.
