My piggies go potty all over their cage.
They are still in woodchips now, but I'm going to be building a C&C cage very soon and hope to use fleece or something like I've seen many of you do.
They are both over a year old. Is potty training still possible, and if it is how would I go about doing it?

I'm sorry if this is already on this site already. I couldn't find it.

Please let me know what would be a successful method. :)

It really depends on the pig. If they do learn, it's usually just peeing in the litterbox, they'll still poop wherever they want. I just put a litterbox in the cage, it helps if it's near their food. When you notice them backing up to pee, put them in the box. I've also had success with putting them right into the litter box if they're out and telling me they have to go potty.
