Does anyone have ideas and ways to exercise piggies? I already have playpen but I'm looking for other ways.
 
I have treat balls that I use for pellets and slices of carrot and green pepper. My guinea pig pushes them around the cage to get the food out. The one I use for pellets is made for cats. Here is a link:

I’ve also cut up cardboard boxes and made mazes in a large play pen so she could explore. Here is a link to a video:

I toss pellets across the cage for my pigs, they chase them and eat them, its like fetch, they just don't bring it back

I forgot to mention, I also use these, They like to roll them around, they like the sound it makes when they roll it around. (broken link removed) and these (broken link removed)
 
These are great ideas! I'm thinking of using willow balls and sticking veggies in them.
 
Just dont buy hamster wheels/ balls as this movement for a pig is not natural and can break their spine. Dont buy the metal balls like this (broken link removed) as there have been numerous counts of guinea pigs getting their heads stuck and severely injured by these metal hay balls
 
Yes thanks for saying that. I was thinking of getting a wheel but thankfully I did my researchlol
