The minimum for two pigs is 7.5 square feet, but the prefered is around 10.

Are you having difficulty locating C&C supplies?
 
Is that 7.5? No I found websites that has the kits but there so expensive for shipping
 
At the very top of your screen there is a tab labeled "Find coroplast". I got a sheet a sheet of it for 12 dollars, and the grids for 20 at somewhere like Bed, Bath and Beyond. This is depending on what country you live in.

The Midwest habitat is 8 square feet, so it will do. It just looks too expensive for that amount of space. :p
 
Well I paid that for one third the size so im fine as long as y'all think its pk for two
 
Yes that habitat is big enough for 2 it meets the minimum requirements, you could always connect 2 to give them more room
 
You can build a huge C&C cage for what you'll spend for that Midwest Habitat cage. And that cage's bottom is canvas, which gets very soiled and is hard to keep clean.

You can buy grids at K-Mart, Walmart, Sears, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and a number of other places. Just be sure to buy the ones that have 9 holes across rather than 5 -- the pigs can get out of the ones with the larger holes. See the Home page of this site for instructions on how to make a cage, and search for grids and coroplast near you at Guinea Pig Cages, Care, Shelters, Veterinarians - Guinea Pig Zone.
 
You can find cheap supplies from these places.

Grids:
Sears - $17.59 for 23 grids (free shipping to your local store)
Floor Standing 6-Cube Storage Unit- Stor-Tools-Garage Organization & Shelving-Storage Hooks & Accessories

K-Mart - $20.89 for 23 grids (also free shipping to your local store)

Bed Bath & Beyond - $19.99 for 19 grids. (sign up for their coupon to get 20% off)
(broken link removed)

Walmart - $21.97 for 16 grids (free shipping to store)
Whitmor White Wire Storage Cubes, Four Cubes Interlocked - Walmart.com


Coroplast - $10 - $15 per 4x8 ft sheet. Looks like there's one in your area.

You can also call your local sign stores to ask for coroplast (corrugated plastic). If you can't find coroplast, you can use plastic shower curtain to line the cage, just make sure your piggies cannot chew the shower curtain.
 
If you prefer to get the Midwest cage, it's much cheaper on Amazon. (free shipping too)
