My pigs live on the first floor of my home. I keep the thermostat around 62 at night...is this too cold for them? Wondering if I should cover their cage at night with a blanket to help keep them warm?

Any opinions? Thanks!

Maybe you could cover three sides of the cage? I'm not totally sure. We keep ours at 68 degrees and they're fine. Is six degrees that much of a difference?

On the home page it says:

The room should have a stable temperature range of 65 to 75 degrees F

You're only a couple of degrees out, so I don't think you have much to worry about. If you are worried, then like Doc said, you can cover the cage with a blanket or something like that
