I thought I'd finally show pictures of my cage. It's a 2x11 with a 1x2 loft. It runs the entire length of my room, so it doesn't all fit in one photo :)

Thanks Bytxlaura and New Guinea Mom! I'm hoping to one day swap out the colored grids so that they all match, and I'd like to add some more toys and accessories. And maybe a couple more pigs ;)

I think it's excellent! I wish I had room for a set up like that! Way to go, slave! ;o)

Wow, chataignon that is an awesome set up! How long does it take to clean? I bet the pigs love all that room!

Ok, after blood, sweat, and tears (and zip tie blisters) I finished a new cage. It is finally off the floor. I worked on it for hours and was stupid because I thought I could build it in my living room and move it into my son's room. Um, it wouldn't fit so I took the bottom grids off. Still wouldn't fit so I took the other bottom grids off. This left just a 2x4 with a bottom. When I finally got it in my son's room, I was so tired that I just built the base one grid shorter than I wanted. I like it better this way anyway and my son can see the pigs easily. The cage took so much time because I put zip ties ALL over it!

Let's have a moment of silence for the hundreds of zip ties who lost their lives in the making of the cage pictured below. (They will be recycled :))

It isn't elaborate, but I am very happy with it. I still need coro though so I just shoved the vinyl flooring in there for now. What a pain! I am so tired! I got new pellet bowls tonight for 1.00 a piece.

codyNpatches, my cage does take a while to clean. A couple of hours including the fleece wash time. It's much better though than when we had 3 seperate cages to clean and one had a top (Fred hadn't been neutered yet and we wanted to be sure no accidents could happen)

My favorite thing in the world is to sit on my bed and just watch them run around :) As far as the pigs appreciating the space... of course not! They are spoiled brats.

Your cage is looking great! I like that it is raised off the floor- I wish I could do that for mine just to have some storage space.

Everyone's cages look great! I redid my piggies this weekend. Everyone now has jungle animals.

All five cages...
Image

The seperate sets of boys on the top, and the herd under them (five pigs live in the bottom).

And the two girls' cages. (Two pigs on top, three on the bottom)

Next time I post pictures of the piggies' setup they will actually have their own room. I can't wait!

Here are a little closer pictures of the pigs setup. I am only posting one picture of the boys' cages because they are identical, only mirror imaged.

Weaver, awesome setup!!! Do they actually play with all the little hanging toys? It's so adorbale. The girls' cages look girly, and the boy's cages look so much more masculine! Hah!

Those mats that you have under the hay bins: I tried to put those under my fleece once, but it ended up being a bad idea. For what purpose do you use them?

CnP: Your patches has coloring similar to my Pinky! The division seems to be almost the same, but the colors are switched around a tad! (The piggy in my avatar). Love the froggies!

Chataignon: I would love to be a piggy and live in your cage. Seriously.

Codynpatches, where did you get that froggie fleece!? I have been searching high and low for frog fleece with a bright blue background and haven't been able to find any!

I found it at Jo Ann Etc. for 3.99 a yard. It is blizzard fleece and took a lot longer to wick properly, but I love it!

Here is a link to the fabric which is now 4.99. I actually bought mine in the store.

pimpinpuji, I only use those mats under the haybins. I shake them out and replace them daily. I have used them for years and they work pretty well for me. They do have to be replaced daily though or they hold the urine.

We've finally finished our new, proper, C&C cage for our girls Princess & Rosie!
It's just a plain old 2x4, but I feel so much better now that they've moved into it

Here's our ladies enjoying their new home

If you look closely, you can see that some of Princess's hairs are growing back on her neck! Woot!
