I am going to order a C & C 2'x4' cage & connect this current store bought one (40"x17.5" outside measurements) to it as a kitchen. I got it with my 2 new boar piggies not knowing how much space they truly need, even though this was the biggest one at the store. No piggie rescues here because I live on a small island that didn't have any place selling them until a few months ago. Now I've been drawing plans & I would get a new 2'x5' but it just won't fit in my space. My idea is to get fleece for the 2'x4' & use bedding for the kitchen. I have been using Sophresh compressed paper bedding with baking soda. I will put a 2-door hut for each in the main section & the food bowl, veggies, hay, & water in the kitchen. How does all this sound? I estimate that they are about 6 weeks old--7" & 8" long--does that sound right? So far they don't fight at all. I'm not sure if I should put the loft that came with this cage in the kitchen. They have a hard time going up the slippery plastic ramp. If it's good to keep the loft, what would be best to cover the ramp or use for a better one with traction? I see from the photos that some people put the hay rack in a loft. Any particular reason for this? Thanks!
