The Target grids are made for specifically for Target. Doubt you would get any where with that.

Yeah, those spacings are too big :( I'd be afraid they'd get stuck. Grr.

And if you are actually using them for storage, doesn't look as great either?

Can we start a campaign? Even if they have to raise the price a few bucks to make up for it?

The ones at Costco and BB&B are usually chrome only. No colored ones.

Hi everyone,
I'm new here & to piggies.

Costco has a set of shelves that have 20-1 1/2in grid & 10-that have a hard mesh, but they only come in gray :p for $20.

Also what is a good width for a ramp?

Holy huge pictures batman! Those need to be resized in photobucket to "message board" size. They'll automatically update here if you do that.

Thank you rshevin. These pics are just too big! It's hard to see what your efforts were all about lolpigs.

All I see are two sets of little blue glowing eyes glaring at you! They really are hiding.

Boo. That stinks. I got my grids a while back, so I'm good, but if I ever need to replace them....

I've just completed my pigs first permanent C+C cages (only taken...two and a half years to get to this stage!)

My boys Bachelor pad. Frank and Josef's 2x5 cage. This cage sits on top of a futon base (as it was the only way to have both the futon and the pigs in a cage) and I had to cable tie 3 of the grids together on each size to fit it on there.

I'm rather proud of how the cages turned out, as it was my first attempt at building a permanent c+c. My pigs seem to be loving it at any rate, Josed popcorned for the very first time when I put him in the cage and I was sobbing with joy at that, knowing that all my begging and pleading had finally paid off and my pigs were finally living in the lifestyle they deserved.

lolpigs, your pics were TOO BIG. I had to change them to links.

Please only post links (or small pics) or risk being suspended from the site.

Those were the last coloured grids in my state...and as far as I know the last in Australia as I've never seen another Big W/Kmart/Target have them in stock since. They came in packs of 4 grids in each colour, red, blue, green and yellow...they were danged expensive too...but the colour coded cages look so good :D

We have a 2x4 C&C cage & want to add a 2nd level.
I like BG Pigs cage on pg. 5, but with a bridge/ramp combo like Feylin has on pg. 10.

What is a good width for a ramp?
Do they need room to pass & turn around?

We have 1 pig & want to adopt another.

Does anyone know if these grids from Walmart are still the right size? It seems they will ship them to the store for free. If they're the right size, I may stock up for my future adopters and myself.

Best I know the Walmart grids are the right size. I've never bought them, but I believe they're listed on GPC.

PiggysGrammy, I like for my ramp to be wider than 1 pig but no, they don't need to be able to truly turn around. Ramps with sides help the pigs feel more confident and often helps them learn how to go up and down easier.

New apartment, new city, calls for a cage redesign! Here is the latest model.

Please ignore the hay and poop on the floor.

2x6 sleeping and play area, notice all the Weave saks and cups.
That's Maddie in the pink cozy sak on the left and Evie in the blue one at the other end.
