Where do you put your hay for them? You could just put handfuls in that nice kitchen area you built.

That's a very big cage! I have found that cages that are 3ft wide like yours help to avoid fights because the pigs have so much space.

That's a pretty big cage, if I remember correctly, that's big enough for more than 3! I bet your trio will love all the room though (once you get 2more piggies.)

Feylin, where - Image

In the first photo you can't see, but hay holder is near guinea pig. She eating hay. :)
It's . However, but holds a lot of hay. Later, perhaps there I will hold vegetables, and for hay I will make a bigger place.

You write very well! I appreciate your taking the time to use proper capitalization and punctuation. Keep it up!

Very creatively constructed cage, too!

Awesome!! How did you get the Midwest guinea habitat cages to be this big? I thought the canvas bottom would restrict the size? I have two "separate" ones that are connected with a ramp for my 5 girls.

I love how tiny the petstore cage looks against this beautiful setup. Nice touch :)

Looking at all of these cages makes me have "The Fever" to redo mine.

I have 3 of them. I duc taped the bottom of them and then I use a binder clip to clip some fleece up where the cages meet. I am just nervous I wont be able to have it this big when I move. For some reason my one pig Chloe just loves the petstore cage. She is always in there. This picture is older, but I recently took out that divider with the ramp on it, so it is more open. Having it all open instead of 3 seperate midwest makes a huge difference.

I recently redid my guinea pig cages. I am down to only three cages now that Dudley and Peabody passed away. My dog Shelby is now using the 2 x 4 bottom section as her resting spot.

Ok, Weaver. How do you get that one section that is above the doggie bed not to sag? Just curious!

Wow! I'm in awe of some of these gorgeous set-ups! I've only been keeping piggies for a little over a month, but their cage has already been evolving - at least I started with a C&C. I think further expansion is going to have to be in their floor time area.

weaver your cage is like a freaking fairyland, lol. all those colours! *dazed* so pretty:) who are those last 2 pigs? the agouti and the crested in the sak? Are they boarders? wow, your cozysaks are a real hit with the girls. ONLY shirley out of my 12 pigs have any idea how to use a cozySAK, they all think it's a mat:P

Serelixyue, the piggie with "the crest" is Allie-Belle. She does not have a crest, just a white spot =) The other piggie is our new addition Holly. We adopted her right before Christmas. She is just a baby (about four months old) and we are really enjoying having a little one around again. It has been a while!! Holly is living in the upper cage now with Natasha, Emma, Maggie, Rosa, and Jasmine seeing Allie-Belle would not accept her living in that cage.

Ange, I just use the connectors and tons of cable ties pulled real tight. I also use 6ml coroplast instead of the 4 so it holds itself up and is not so flimsy.

Thanks, Lynx. I'm thinking about more houses and beds, or, just more beds ?
