The tile underneath is our safety plan in case our A/C ever goes out. Thats never happened but we cant be too safe living in San Antonio with guineas.
(carrots in hay basket are leftover food I got out of the way while cleaning)
100% fleece liner on top of the towels.
Happy guineas - Not so happy furbaby parents.
We are looking for literally any other solution ideas. We dont have an excessive amount of time, energy or money on our hands as my wife works as well.
- And got the T-shirt
I put a layer of thin fleece on top to make it easier to dump the poop and the hay, and stir the pellets when needed.

I have recently been very happy using large compressed bags of shredded paper (like this from Kaytee). I find that it goes a long way and does a great job of absorbing liquid. It costs less than Carefresh, and isn't the hassle of fleece. You would need to put a lip on the cage or it'd be all over the floor.

I would avoid newsprint - it's not very effective and smells quickly in my experience. You also don't want ink they may get sick from on any paper you use.
I like your setup - you have the hay nicely spaced out and you have multiple feeding spots so that no one pig can guard the food and prevent all the others from eating.
