    Boars with broken bond in split cage, can I add a female each?

    Hi everyone! I have two lovely, almost one year old boys who currently live in a large cage separated by c&c grids down the middle.

    Hi all. I'm in the process of making a c&c cage for my 2 girls. I was really hoping to make it 4 grids by 3 grids.
