    Are They Bored? + Shed And Hay Advice

    Hi everyone! Just wanted some advice/answers to a couple of questions. Firstly – hay. I give my two girlies loads of hay every day, in two different places, and also in a hay rack. I read that guinea pigs won’t eat hay that they’ve gone to the toilet in, but my girls seem to just go to the...

    Bordatella Between Guinea Pigs And Rabbits

    I currently have 3 rabbits and am getting 2 guinea pigs once my dad and I have built a shed. Issue is, they'll have to share a shed. The rabbits will have a two story hutch and full run of the floor space during the day while the guinea pigs will have a raised hutch. Each will have a separate...

    Guinea Pigs Seem Sad Since Moving To The Shed

    hi everyone, This is probably a silly question.. we moved our boys to the shed last weekend because of all that horrible rain and wind as our garden isn't very well protected from the elements! I've ordered a snugglesafe to keep them warm in the evenings and I'm going to dig out an old duvet...

    Officially Indoor Pigs! (v Wordy!)

    When I got my three girls the intention was always to keep them outside in a pig shed, which I had had made specially, partly due to my OH's hay fever. We realised in the summer that the position of the shed meant it was going to get far too hot and I scrambled for a c&c as a summer house. So...

    Heaters And Heat Lamps?

    Does any one have any experience or advice on electric heaters for a shed? The pigs are free range so it can not go on the floor - must be wall or ceiling mounted. Mains electric will be installed in the shed though there isn't any currently. I've been looking at thermostat controlled green...

    Home Improvements

    I bought this lovely house for my piggies: and they don't use it! (the ramp is a bit slippy - bad mummy didn't cover it!) They sleep under it and only go in when put food in there. And they chew the legs. They are growing and they are finding it a squeeze to fit under comfortably and the legs...

    Outdoor Thermometer

    With nicer weather, hopefully, on the way, I am thinking about my shed and the sun. I have already sourced shade cloth to fix over the windows to block direct sunlight (my shed is in sun for a few hours in the daytime) but I am looking for an accurate and reliable digital thermometer which I can...

    Solar Powered Shed

    I've just taken delivery of the solar panel and light for my shed. It says installation takes less than 10 minutes ... I feel this may be wildly optimistic!

    Lino Tips?

    I'm at the point of being ready to lay lino in my pig-shed but I'm not sure how to go about it. We'll be using a sheet, so no gaps, and thinking double sided carpet tape to secure, but the walls are double-framed which will make it a bit harder. Would you just lay it on the floor (I'd be...
