    Coroplast problems

    So the base of my c&c is currently corrugated plastic sheet from wickes, before little one Willow arrived it was doing the job fine, as my older one Honey is extremely calm, but now Willow keeps jumping around and now the sides of the coroplast base have started to "cave" inwards.

    Fleece cage liner reccomendations

    Hi all, I want to make the change to cage liners for my two boars, but am finding it hard to know where to look. Does anyone have any recommendations for a shop that isn’t too pricey, but have a good absorbent layer? I have a 2x4 C&C cage. Thanks!

    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?

    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...

    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...

    ... but I'm not a native English speaker. What's the name of the black plastic "things" the person is using to cover the sides of the ramp in this video please? I'd like to order something like this from Ebay or Amazon, but I'm not sure what search term I need to use. Thanks in advance! :)
