Hi guys,
At the moment the cage is on the floor but I want to rebuild it again and make a 2x5 with a hay loft. I plan to have a one grid high stand and wanted to put the hay box under the cage. I buy Kleenmama's hay, and usually get 25lbs which lasts forever for two pigs. Obviously it doesn't fit under their cage and I have no closet or anywhere else to put it, so it takes up extra space next to the cage which I hate. I'm going for like a 2x2x1 space to fit it in, or less.
If none of the boxes will fit what kind of container could I get that will contain the hay and keep it fresh while being low enough to shove under the cage?

I should add: I have no garage or shed of any kind so the hay must be stored by their cage, or in the house at least.
 
You could build a hay box from coroplast. I'm not sure how much a 2x2x1 will hold. But if you want to store more hay, you could go with 2 grid high stand.
 
Not a bad idea there Lissie :)
I may do that, and store the big haybox in another room or something. I can't go two grids high because with the hayloft It's too awkward to clean and catch pigs. It'd be 4 grids high total! o_O
 
I built mine 2 grids high and put a wooden hamper underneath with a cotton liner. I've got a loft too, but I use a little folding step stool if I can't reach something (also, there's a door under the loft.)
