Nice cages, I want a C&C cage for my two little ladies, a lot of ideas here, thank you.

Here's my 2 sows' (3 months and 4 months old) 4x2 cage:

Image

So the empty 2x1 area on the left will be the new addition. As you can see, they already have a 2x1 hay loft, the fleece forest, a bunk bed, and a ledge. They also have hideys and tunnels and various fleece things that are rotated in and out.

What would you add in that empty space? I could use some help with ideas for that space.

He made it so the trays come apart from the legs (it's attached with 4 bolts for each tray).

Those are very nice, Pennypigs. Your husband did a lovely job.

The cute pigs look so happy!

They look like they're 5x2s. Very cool design.

Is it me or do those sides look a bit low ? just saying.
Still a great design though. I am going to be building one soon and am going to have 16" sides all round and a top.

We wanted to be able to get in and out of the cage easy. The plexiglass on the front is 6 inches, our pigs are older and fat LOL.. there's not much chance of them jumping out.

It's 77" x 29" , just a touch bigger than a 5 x 2 :) They all have piggy huts, (when the picture was taken, they were in
the washer)

I love how easy it is to keep clean!

I posted this in my chronicle, but I know this place is filled with people waiting for cage inspiration, so I'll share my cage ... yet again. :)

I was recently inspired to have herds, two herds. One for boys, and one for girls! It went pretty well, if you ask me. I have 6 boys, but two of them are skinnies *and* 6 months old, so that was not a good combo for my burly men. The 4 fully furred boys live in this 4x4.
Image

Next to them we have my favorite form of entertainment, 10 girls and 1 neutered boy in a 4x6.
Image

Finally we have the teenage naked boys in a 2x5, separate from the others.
Image

I really love this setup, I can literally sit on my couch for hours watching them. It really is great, and I feel so much closer to them.

By the way, nice cages everyone!!

Pennypigs, that is the nicest cage I've seen.
I love how polished it looks!

My newest design (stacked 3by5's and 2by4's)
I love how it opens up a room and is easy to reach the piggies.

Nice cages everyone! I've just got a plain 2x4. GPG, are those 1/2 grids in your last picture, and if so, did you make them yourself?

GuineaPigGoddess - are those little shelves the ones sold for shoes? I was getting ready to give several to Goodwill since I reorganized my daughter's closet and didn't need them anymore. It never dawned on me to use them for the piggies. But I bet they would love them. I just have to figure out whether they'd be willing to sacrifice their pigloos for them since there won't be room for everything.

Yes they are commonly known as shoe shelves, ours we bought as bathroom shelving though. :P They work great, I don't really like many things sold for pigs in average stores, these offer security but are still light enough and its very easy to capture pics.

Catie, yep! For the skinnier, inner squares, I used a wire cutter. That part was easy. For the thicker wire around, a saw and lots of effort got the job done.

Pennypigs, I think your cage is great! I have open fronts on my cages, probably 5 inches of coro, and they work great. No one jumps ship!
