Hiya Piggie lovers, I'm curious as to what hay racks you're using? I'm worried about choosing a store one encase its unsafe. Any attempts I've made so far have been suitable for Moo & Tubby, but they are not Dom proof as he uses them for Hiding, weeing, playing, sleeping, pirching and pooing. So I end up throwing away allot of hay as Tubby tells me "naturally Dad, it just doesn't taste the same after Dom's been playing in it" :eek:

If possible please attach your Hay rack pictures for me to take a look at :)

Dom climbed up into the hayrack, whilst Tubby eats from underneath!

I bent a c&c grid over in the middle then at the sides to stop them climbing.Hung it from top of c&c cage with cable ties.Worked great for my girls.

I found this one earlier on amazon which has an enclosed top, he would be able to sit on the top but not in the hay

I also bent a grid section over, but cannot picture in my head how you bent over the sides without it snapping, but what I could do is put a full grid each end to stop Dom from climbing in, I think its just crazy enough to work :)

Hey! I have a Ferplast cage so I use the Ferplast hay rack and I think its great. It is plastic so piggies can't get their heads etc stuck in it or anything nasty like that and my girls have never had any problems with it. I found this link on google, just to show you what it looks like.. http://www.petmeds.co.uk/Ferplast-R...6&cadevice=c&gclid=CMO06sqvocUCFW7KtAodUDcA8w

:)
Thank you for sharing this, my biggest concern is my boys getting hurt or injured, so I'll put this on my list of possibilities :)

I use a bent C&C grid with one over the top so they can't climb in it or pull hay over the top and out of it. :)

Thank you for all your suggestions and ideas, at the moment I'm just placing the hay on the floor, but having to throw heaps away as its soiled by Dom, I really do like the hay bag idea and will look online to see how much I could pick a couple up for!

I too have a piggie who poops in the hay rack whilst eating! But I change the hay every day anyway so it's ok:

I also have this one which is too narrow for them to sit in and works well:

Hi! I use the pets at home basic wooden hay rack! My pigs love it! They jump inside and I often find them sleeping on top :)

I've finally found a solution to my hay rack problem, I've taken both hay racks out and I simply pull the fresh hay out from the hay bag, this alerts the boys and they both come racing out Wheeking, I then dump the hay on top of them, this gets them so excited as they are basically swimming in a huge hay clump, they also sleep and rest on it :D problem solved!
