    Hi there, I'm currently looking into upgrading my piggies cage, I currently have 2 male pigs in a pet shop cage (I know it's bad, it's only temporary and they are out all the time) I'm looking into building my own cage and using a base that will be 150cm × 75cm and eventually I want to grow my...

    Cage cleaning

    Hello I was wondering what to use for cage cleaning. I was always using white vinegar and water but the cage is getting smellier and smellier. I read that you should use detergent and water before the vinegar and water? If so, what type should I use and how long should I wait for it to start...

    Felt Bedding Care

    Hey everyone, Just wondering how often you change your felt bedding in your piggies cage and how you care for/wash it? I know what the washing instructions are for my felt, but having quite a large cage, putting the felt lining in the fur bag means its a struggle to get it in the machine. I'm...

    Taming Process

    Hi! I've had my two boys, Finn and Parker, for about a month and a half. They're settling in well. They've recognized my footsteps and wheek when I come up the stairs with food, I play ukulele for them every single night and they seem to really enjoy that (does anybody want to see a video of...

    Cage Clean w/ Scared Guinea Pigs?

    Hi:D I have to do a cage clean today. I have had my piggies for a week now and they are lovely but still very scared (they're still settling in.) I don't know how I am going to get them out of their cage to clean it. My mom suggested that we block of some of their cage and lure them to go into...

    New piggie palace!

    In my ongoing quest to make sure the boys stay together we have upcycled a toddler bed to give them lots of room. Also, I'm a children's book illustrator and, as I wanted the piggies in the centre of our home, I felt it needed to be pretty too! Not a main concern for the piggies, but nice for...

    Ideas for Bigger Cage

    Hi all, I currently have my two pigs in the bare minimum for a cage, but have been looking for some way to extend it. (I don't remember how big my current cage is- probably around 8sq ft if i were to take a guess. I measured it a while back and would have to measure it again.) To kind of make...

    Do It Yourself Cage Liners

    setting my boys up in c&c cages. I’m looking at making my own cage liners (probably 2x4) I’ve been looking, and I can’t seem to figure out what exactly people are putting in the middle for the absorbent layer? I’m guessing the top and bottom are fleece? Where is the cheapest place to get...

    How Long Does Dominance Last?

    Yesterday I put my two boars in a bigger cage that is 2 x 6 grids. They are doing the usual stuff, teeth chattering, rumble-strutting and mounting. How long does this dominance usually last?

    I Need A Plan Quick!

    So, since my cage isn't big enough for 2 piggies, I decided to keep Winnie in a pet store cage for a few days because we are deciding on how and where we are going to build our HUGE C&C guinea pig cage. I need some ideas because obviously, pet store cages are too small but that is the only...

    Fleece Bedding Is Better?

    I am thinking about switching to fleece bedding because it seems to fit my standards. I need fleece that I can just wash every day and will not leak through and have a washable absorbent layer. Right now, I currently have store-bought bedding, which everyone knows is a hassle to keep up with so...

    Poop Coming Through C&c Grids - Solved

    Here the problem: the boys' cage is up against a wall and they push their poop out through the c&c grids and it becomes trapped between the skirting boards and the side of their pen which is a pain to clean. The solution: cot bumpers from Aldi! Let me first off make it clear that cot bumpers...

    How Did You Even Manage To Do This?
