General Too Many Piggies?

Well, there are several bonded pairs of males in my area, and I've already got one piggy and a 2x6 C&C cage. I know boars generally need more room than sows, but would three boars in a 2x6 be crowded? I've heard people say that they wouldn't put three boars in anything less than a 2x7, but the guide lines on guineapigcages.com says that a 2x6 is fine for as much as four pigs. What do you think?


PS
Unless I move around the furniture a lot, I won't be able to fit in anything larger than a 2x6.

PSS

For those of you that are having trouble finding piggies for adoption, I recently tried searching in the "community" section of craigslist for "guinea" and I came up with a lot more piggies than I did with a general area search.
 
Three boars in a 2x6 should work, particularly if that's 2 grids x 6 grids, and not 2'x6'.
 
It's 2x6 grids :).
 
I think that would work as long as you have extra hideys, water and food bowels. Just be prepared to move furniture if they want bigger:D!
