I thought veggie time might be an issue, but it hasn't been. They all seem to stay and beg in their little areas.
It's kinda cute. The piggies that were grouped together before in the smaller cages are staying pretty much together. I find the same "friends" laying together under stools and such. It's pretty interesting to watch them all.
Might try to build the boys cage tomorrow. But, might have to wait until Ray goes home because I gotta move a bunch of stuff and I'd rather spend time with him while he's here :)

Here's the entire cage. I still have to put on the 4th level (the coroplast is on top of the cage). I'll be able to house two more piggies. The stuff that's on the 4th level now will be stored on the top level.
Here's the hay rack and potty area. I had a time trying to figure out what kind of rack to use. I found these shelf things around the house (I have three of them). I cut them in half and ziptied coroplast onto the shelf thingy. You can also see the opening I made into the coroplast wall for them to get into the potty/hay area.
And here are the cleanest piggies I've seen. Pebbles in the lighter colored girl and Mocha is the one w/ a black "jacket" and white "pants". Mocha's the one that likes to zoom around.

Here's Rusty poking her head out and Jersey's waiting for the hay in the background.
And on the bottom level (where I can sit & talk w/ them easier) are Swiss & Colby.
And my spitfire foster girl Colby. We're working on "just cause the hand is in the cage doesn't mean it's going to pick her up". She's doing better. She enjoys a good scritch on the head.
Jenn, nice foster cages. I'd love to have colored coroplast. I didn't see any at my sign store. I may have to road trip down to get some! (Ok, I could probably find it closer, but really, any excuse to get together again, lol!).
I'll have to get a photo of my 'son' Wiggy and I with our heads together to see if yours and Kerm's assessment is accurate. ; ) In my 80's hair days, I'd probably have looked more like Pumpkin Spice if she were blonde! I trimmed her big hair this past weekend.
The ramp and top level get done after the main level, so they are still fleeced. You can see CJ peeking out from the hay loft!
I have3 bath towels folded in half under the whole cage. There are hand towels folded in half under the sleeping areas. It took me a few weeks to figure out where everyone pees the most!
Here's the cage with the fleece over it. I tuck the fleece between the grids and the coroplast to keep Fred from burrowing under it.
Kirby showing off her loft. The cage is right up against the wall so that's why I didn't continue the grids higher.
Under the loft is their hay/litter box
Ducky and Kirby seem to really like it

Feylin, I like your colorful cage. That is a smart idea to add extra towels to their favorite sleeping spots!
Liann, I admired your cage on your own thread, and I'm admiring it again, here. :)
Jenn, I love your hayrack idea. Very clever!
I still want to make a cage of grids and corroplast, which is imposible to find over here, and dear to import aswell.
Anyway, this is my girls´s cage and they love it!
This week´s fleece is this cute green one we bought at Ikea last week, for 1,79 euro! very cheap, they were in white, dark blue, red, light blue and this green. I brought two!
Next to this fleece, I got two others of this very strong kind of pink-red colour, very cute, and a beige one.
I do the towels and fleece change once per week, and I sweep the poops, hay and shelving daily.
Up there is their bedroom, I made those cozies myself, and I got loads others to replace them during the week, as they get rather wet and smelly, blesh! ^^
That hay box there is the chewing spot for my stuborn piggies. I gave up on getting annoyed when they do so lol.
(this hay rack is a closet basket by the way)
"yes? mommy, what are you doing with that thing?" ^^
