Here’s our boys’ new digs. We’ve had Milo, for a couple weeks now and we’re finally getting Oreo tomorrow. It is 36”x78”

I built this with my friend a few weeks ago. Our 2 piggies love it but they will not use the ramps in it. So the only way they go into the other levels is if we put them in there. Can anyone tell my whey they won’t use the ramps? I’ve tried bribing them with veggies but they are not interested whatsoever. Is it because they might be to steep?

This cage is nicely built but not suitable for guinea pigs. They need large horizontal areas for exercise and they are not climbers. They may use ramps that aren't too steep but there should be side rails to protect them from falling. Unfortunately the ramps in your cage could be dangerous. Guinea pigs are fragile and can't judge height, so even a short fall can cause severe injury or death. Also, the wood will become a problem because it's hard to clean and will become soaked with urine. A cage like this would be good for rats since they love to climb and explore.

There are a number of grid cages pictured here that can give you ideas for building a cage: https://www.guineapigcagesstore.com/

Here's a video of Lacey's cage redecorated with a rainbow theme for Pride Month.

New here! My daughters and I just finished a 2x4 C&C cage for our two young sows, Daisy and Poppy. We’ve had them one month since we rescued them and love them so much already. They love their new home too. :)

Our latest upgrade for our babies. Both love going up the ramp. Their Zoomies include the ramps & lofts :)

My newest setup it's a 7x2.5 with multiple bedding types, I am going to add a little bit of fleece under their houses for more comfort

The front grids act as an accordion door for easier access as well using zip ties

There's a hole in the grids to the right so they can get to that closed off area, needed to put the grids as extra support for the lid

This is my guinea pig cage that I’m building! It’s almost finished I only need to screw on the door. It’s 5ft by 2.5 ft.

Thanks! I’m really surprised at how well it came out! Right now the piggies are happily popcorning and exploring their new cage!

The new piggie cage that my dad and I made together! It has waterproof linoleum on the floor, and waterproof walnut for the sides. There is also giant plexiglass windows, which I LOVE! There are holes made for the water bottles, and a little door for the pigs to come out for play time!

I’m really in love with it! It’s so much easier to clean out when the cage doesn’t have a top. Also, since the wood is waterproof, I just wipe it down every few days!

@teambenji543, that is one beautiful cage and the fleece is super cute! You and your dad did a great job.

I wish my piggy cage has a plexiglass window but I have the standard C&C cage. Lily has taken to biting on the bars all over the cage and she would not be able to bite them if it is all plexiglass. I put up some Guinea Pig Cage Pig-A-Boo plexiglass panels but Lily still squeezes into the one grid that doesn't have it and gnaws away.

Thank you!! My dad is really into woodworking as a side hobby, and I’ve told him multiple times that he should open an Etsy shop. :)

The windows are also a bit funny, if I hold my finger against it, then my guinea pigs start licking the glass thinking that they’re licking my fingers.
