Awesome cages!!!

So do you guys always take pictures right after cleaning? Are your cavies litter box trained? HOW are your cages always this pristine? And EuropeCavys, what do you use below that gigantic fleece blanket? wee-wee pads? Towels?

Weaver's pigs obviously hit the jackpot, even by this forum's standards ;)

Hard to get the true picture of the cages, there are 2- 2 x 5 cages, 2- 2 x 4 cages, 2- 2 x 3 cages, 1- 3 x 5 and 1- 3 x 6 cage in the piggie room, each one is a condo with a top and bottom cage. The dining room has 2- 2 x 4 cages and 2- 2 x 3 cages.

Wow Guineadaddy! That is quite a spectacular setup! You have so many piggies to snuggle with :-). I bet you go through lettuce and hay like crazy. Over this Christmas break we had 2 bunnies and 5 guinea pigs at our house and we were constantly making trips to the grocery store to load up on greens.

That is an amazing pig room Guineadaddy!

Out of curiosity, what is the average height of the sides of the coroplast? My sides are 6" but I was thinking of cutting it down to 5" or so.

We buy between 2 to 3 cases of lettuce a week, 50 pounds of carrots a month, no less than a 110 pound bale of hay per month plus the assorted other greens and fruit as treats.

There is nothing like hearing 50 plus piggies wheeking for food when you open the fridge or rattle a bag.

I tend to go with a 6 inch side to help keep the bedding inside the cages. We have both fleece and standard bedding and use pelletized pine in the potty boxes and a small coro tray under the hay bins.

We are This Little Piggie Small Animal Sanctuary Inc.
We focus on Piggies but we will take in most small furries, some of the piggies are personal, then there are sanctuary and adoptables.
The sanctuary pigs are the older or less than perfect health that are just as lovable just need a little extra care

Loving all these cages! Am I the only one who puts barely anything in their cage? I have a 1x2 kitchen and a 2x4 running area. I have piles of hay and waterbottles hanging over the kitchen (the water is on the opposite side of the hay), and on the 2x4 running area I have a fringe curtain and food bowls. Daily I'll swap in a new "toy" - big brown bags cut open to run through and munch on, grid tunnel, ikea tunnel, beds, stacked pads to climb on. However, most of the time, it is empty. Since I have a fairly small-ish cage (2x5 for 2 large girls) I like to keep it open for them to run. It also gets them more accustomed to me.

Love the cage, GPigsRSweet! So colorful and neat!

Decided to share my cages... First a little look on the full thing.
Image

Image

Next to the cages is the storage for the "Pig Junk". A large bag of kiln dried pine, a little bag for daily laundry and three large tubs containing hay, bedding and pellets. There's also a double dish for my free range rabbit.
Image

First is two adult males, Bingo & Pogo, in their 2x5.
Image

Below them are the "Mini Boys", Dillie and Jessie (2 months), also in a 2x5.
Image

The fleece is a little messy, they are both determined fleece diggers. ;)
Image

Next comes the herd cages. The top contains 6 females, 1 neutered male. Girls: Precious, Nugget, Parfait, Molly, Olive & Frizzle. Boy: Fable.
They have a 2x3 kitchen.
Image
Sorry the kitchens look a little messy, haven't done the daily rounds yet.

& a 2x6 bedroom area, 1x2 of that being two "bunk beds".
Image

And finally, the smaller herd consisting of 4 females, Honey, Annie, Pixie & Dixie.
2x2 kitchen area.
Image

2x7 bedroom area. There are also some structural grids to hold up the floor of the cage above.

Do they jump up to the bunk beds. I'd like to do that with two of my cages.

Yep, they just hop right up! It's about 4 squares high, or 6 inches. Even Fable, who is 8 years old, can easily jump on up without a problem.

Grr! I cannot seem to find Coroplast anywhere! I really want to make a C&C cage but am having the hardest time finding the materials!!! There is one company that may have Coroplast but they aren't open on Sundays so I will call them tomorrow and see what I can find. When I find the stuff and make my new cage I will post some pictures. Wish me luck!

Those cages stay together okay without any zipties?
