I've made a plan of how many girds I'm thinking about using to make my cage bigger if I do get a third boy. Will it be big enough for 3 grown males to happily get along in?

This is the size I have my two boys in right now:

So I would just be adding 3 more girds.
 
Is this a one level cage? So it's going to be a 3x4 attached to a 3x2 then? It should be plenty of space for 2-3 boys though, yes.
 
I dont understand your layout. Are the outside grids the walls of the C&C that stand vertical? Is the white space open area? Are the squares space fillers or cage floors?
 
The squares are the bottom of the cage, they're the girds. :)

Or would it be better to do this?

Yes, It's just one level. :)
 
I like the first one more than the one in post #4.
 
Cleaning will be difficult with such a wide cage, perhaps a U shaped cage that equals out to 18-20 grid base?
Do you have space restrictions for the cage? I might be able to help better with more info.
 
There is a door Which is why I've left the big gap on all of the different ones. I do mange to clean their cage already which is the second one in my first post.
 
So something like just a normal 3x6 with like a 1x2 area cut out in the front of it for easy cleaning wouldn't fit then? I think a 3x4 with like a 1x3 loft would be plenty of space for three pigs though honestly if you cant do anything else.
 
I can't do lofts, I've got 3 mouse cages with my four male mice in them who have to share the room. :)

I think If I do get another boy I think I'll just stick with my first design.
I just wanted to know If It would be big enough for 3 adult piggies.

Thanks
 
This Is what I'll try I think:
