- Supporter in '12
I don't really know what the total cost of the cage is but I am guessing that it was quite high - I bought already painted wood borders, PVC-plastic and a lot of tools and screws!
The size of the cage is 160x90 cm. The PVC-plastic are screwed to the inside of the wood borders so that the pigs can't get to them. The bottom and back of the cage is lined with wax table cloth and the edges between the cloth and plastic are sealed with silicone.
The girls have now moved in. They started of hiding in the fleece...
Regiane: Sure, you can use the pictures. Have you seen my boys cage? It is a bed that I made into a cage.
I have a small kitchen area with shavings, and the rest is fleece. We sweep the poops daily and spot clean the kitchen as needed. Since I added the kitchen area, they don't make that big of a mess in the rest of the cage.
I will take pictures later. Cage is due for a full cleaning. Courtney and I spent the first half of today at Guineadaddy's place cleaning his 20 cages so I am pooped.
I went there today and I bought a pack of 23 grids for around $30. I also bought a giant sheet of coroplast, they have a lot of different colors, and I figure I will have more than enough.
Nemo seems to like having the extra space too, he's just popcornin' around. He has gotten under the fleece around 3 times already, but I've pinned the sides up with binder clips so hopefully he won't get under anymore. I got all my ideas for the cage setup from here, so thanks everyone!
One day I plan to have 4 different cages. One huge one for my girls and 3 2x4 for guinea pigs that are foster or start a small adoption only housing 3 pairs at a time. My plan is to win the lottery, build my dream home. Off the kitchen will be the pig room. In this room I will have the cages mentioned above, as well as a fridge for veggies and meds, and a washer and dry just for piggy bedding. I have it all mapped out, now I just need those millions ;-)
