    C&c cage and changing the shape with a roof

    Hello so I am looking for a new cage for my piggies. I was looking at a 2x6 c&c with a lid but am worried that it will not fit in my space but was wondering if I could turn it into a 3x5 I think? Would the lid be able to work on it and the floor? Thank you

    Is this a good idea to make the cage bigger?

    Hello everyone! Over the past few months I’ve been saving money in order to re-do my piggies cages and set up. The c&c cage I currently have is an upgrade form the store bought cage I had which was under the minimum but at the time the only option. However, I’m not happy with the current cage...

    Help! An escape artist in training

    Hi I have an urgent issue! I set up my new C&C cage today for my skinny pigs and my smallest one has jumped out twice within the past hour! I was told piggies don’t jump high and the cage would be safe, what should I do until the cover I ordered comes in?

    C&C cage

    I recently ordered my guinea pigs a C&C cage (5 x 2) and the correx came folded. I can't get it to lay flat at all. Is there any way to flatten it?

    C&c cages for babies

    Hi I was wondering if anyone knows anything about having babies in c&c cages? Are they safe for them? Wanting to buy a cage but not sure if I need to spend extra to have baby bars put in if they are ok with normal grids. So if anyone knows anything that would be fab! Xx

    C&C Cage Safety!

    I just built my piggies a whole new cage, but I worry that I've majorly screwed up. I have 7x7 hole grids and I've been told that that is unsafe. I can't exactly afford to build a whole other one right now and my grandparents would get extremely angry if I did. What can I do?

    Rolled correx?

    Just wondering if anyone’s ever had correx delivered rolled as I’ve found some cheap-ish on eBay but it comes rolled. Does it flatten out properly and is it as easy to score as delivered flat?
