I have 3 piggies I will be gaining 1or 2 more.
problem is my pigs 1boar and 2 females always like to cram into the same hidey
its amazing how many pigs fit into a hidey when they want to
anyways. Right now I have the octopus sometimes that gets
kind of cramped becuase sometimes I hear squabbling so I was
wondering what do other people use
 
You can skip the hideys and use fleece forest. You can make a whole row of it on one side of the cage. This way they can stay as close together as they want.

Your boar is neutered, right?
 
I use pigloos in all 4 of my cages. I have singles in three cages but a pigloo for two in my mother-daughter cage since they like to share. I take them out of some of my cages during the day but keep them in the ones where my pigs dig under the fleece.
 
yeah he is nuetered but the way i baby- proofed the cage i cant put it up
i will post a photo in a min

I've always liked your cabanas! Now I'm wondering, where do you buy plastic grids like that cause I would love to make one!

I bought some of those at Walmart for $10 for the box of cubes - I use these cubes for the bottom storage level of my GP cage
 
Where did you get that octopus? I must have one.:grumpy:
 
Your very welcome. I love decorating the piggies cage.
 
Same here! I'm relatively new to the piggy world, about a month, and I'd say I have an addiction to decorating their cage! I'm always doing something, I want it to be perfect for them and this forum has helped out tremendously, thanks to everybody :)

Edit: MissJean, I'm pretty sure I saw those octopus beds at PetCo. I can't seem to find them on the internet though because I wouldn't want you to have to buy it from PetCo if you really do want it. :)

Edit again: I found it on ebay and amazon, its cheaper on amazon :)

Boofp, I keep seeing this and forget to ask you, is that a crochet item you have in that cabana?? I really want to crochet something for my boars but not to sure if it would even work! It looks very nice!

I use what I call Cavy Caves. I got the idea from pigloos. They are made of fabric so there is more air flow compared to pigloos.

Did you make the cavy cave or buy it? If you bought it, where can I find one? If you made it, do you have a tutorial? Or sell them?
 
I do sell them on my site (link in profile). I've sold a few already and the feed back has been great. My pigs love them! Maybe in the future I'll make a tutorial. I just never find time to make them LOL, a tutorial that is.
