I'm not sure if I'm the first one who has done this but I just wanted to share :)

It's like having fiddle sticks but better, you can hang them anywhere, piggies can either eat hay or chew on cardboard.

I have a lot of cardboard tubes lying around because I save them for one of my piggies who love playing with them. He tosses it around the cage rather than chewing/eating it. Sometimes he uses it to hit his other cage mates. He's naughty that way. I poked holes in the middle of the tube and used paper twine to stack them together. Then filled it with hay.

My piggies love it! It does make a lot of mess but I don't mind... I don't use it as a hay rack, just a toy. I do worry about hay getting in their eye, is it dangerous?

Cute!! Totally love
 
That is awesome!
 
Cool My Pigs Would Love It !
 
That's really clever the way you hung it up!
 
Thank you in advance from my pigs... they're going to flip out when they get this tonight.
 
Great idea! No, totally safe I would think :)
 
Haha, I couldn't give it to Twix. He devours cardboard like it's a gourmet delicacy.
 
Thats really cool :)
 
I saw this and made one of them using only one roll and my girls love it :) It spun around a bit too much for them to grab the hay so I tied it on the ends as well as the middle, now it spins enough for them work a little but not too much that they get discouraged and leave. Thanks for the idea!
 
Fabulous idea!
I am going to use it for sure!
 
Haha wow fantastic idea. Love it! I'm going to have to try it out.
 
that is a very cute idea . i think i will have to try that later before cage cleaning ..hehe
 
Kinda similar (as in the disposable stuffable way) I have started to use old tissue boxes with and extra hole or two cut out for the piggers as a hay box. Neither of my girls would eat out of the rack and with the KMS hay it was such a mess we started stuffing tubes and tissue boxes, works like a charm! This is a great idea to hang them:)
 
Awesome! Definitely going to try this!
