    How to create a bigger guinea pig cage?

    I have recently gotten two guinea pigs that keep fighting and I have heard that getting a bigger cage will help them get along. I was wondering if anyone knows how to fuse two cages together to create one big cage? I want them to be inside and can't find any bigger cages than the one I have...

    I have a 2 story hutch for my 2 pigs but only one will use the ramp? Both will go up it but only one down again. We have already adapted it to a more tunnel shape to try and help, temped her with food and her sister being at the bottom. We have literally tried everything but she is still...

    Bonded?

    Since roughly around yesterday 10am, I have been bonding my Harvey (aprox a year) with a new baby pig (aprox 1 month) Milton, I didn’t read up enough and thought washing Harvey’s blankets and wiping down a bit would be enough to put Milton in his cage, stupid now that I know. They were NOT...

    "are We Moving Again?"

    Hi, recently I've been taking my piggies upstairs in their fold-out run so that we can spend some time together, and also so that they don't get agitated by the fireworks.
