All the stuff came from eBay and Teacrate today :)

I have a basic 2x5 cage done, but I'm having trouble adding the upper level. Pics to follow if/when I ever finish.

OH is very annoyed with me for spending money on the animals, but the stuff is here now so he's too late :))

Hi

That is brilliant.

We want to do a C&c cage ourselves . We want to put it across the kitchen on the back wall. We will have to split it in the middle though as one of our pigs is a horror always rumbling to the other one. I am too frightened to leave let them be together in case they fight.

We went to b&Q yesterday but they did not have the wire cubes in stock.

Were did you buy yours (website address please) / roughley how much did that cost so i get a idea?

and would you recommend them / i am always weary of buying anything over the internet

Thanks very much

I have just looked on the site and noticed they are based in Warrington / that is not far from us.

I am going to give them a call to see if we can pop up there on Saturday and buy and collect. That will save me taking a day off work.

Also what do you use for the bottom of the cage?

Hi Just to let you know i contacted the website for the wire cubes today in Warrington.

I have ordered 2 boxes and i can collect them direct tomorrow.

Very excited now can not wait to build it.

Correx is ordered and will get that next week.

We are looking at 2 cubes width and five across going across our back kitchen wall / i hope it is going to be big enough for them.

I am going to sell my dining room table and chairs this weekend and going to buy a smaller bistro style table as there is only 2 of us and we never sit on it unless its Christmas lol

That sounds good.

I don't think i will be able to do a hay loft (will see when it is set up) as i am going to have to divide it in the middle.

I bought 2 boars January and within the first week had to take one back to Pets at home as he was not well. He ended up on injections through a bad case of mites apparently it was something to do with thier hay batch. I believe a lot of animals came back due to this (Fudge was ok).

So Sid was away from fudge for 7 weeks . They were going to put him up for adoption if we did not want to buy him again. I felt awful about this and decided to get him.

I had to buy him another cage as they said there may be fighting.

So i now had fudge in a rabbit 100 cage as we bought the big one for the 2 of them / then had to put Sid in a small one. I do not feel comfortable with animals in small cages.

I have tried putting them together but Sid rumbles a lot and i am the one which gets totally stressed out by this .

My friend looked after them at her home when we went on holiday. She let them both out together in her kitchen (she has been a owner of 2 guinea pigs) She said they rumbled a lot but were ok.

I tried it and Sid started growling / it freaked me out completely.

So i have decided to go for the C&C cage / i only came across them last week and thought brilliant i want one lol.

I am going to do a divider in the middle for now. / maybe one day i will be brave enough to put them together and not freak out. The other option is to have them both neutered but i am scared they don't make it with the anaesthetic.(these pigs are treated like babies lol).

Maybe one day i will be able to do it with a hay loft but until then i will keep it ground level.

If anything happened to them in the future and i decide i want other piggies i will definitely take rescues on this site. I only found this site after i had bought them from Pets at home.
Maybe i will be fortunate enough to get 2 what have really bonded. (that's what i wanted in the first place). But until them my boys are with me until the unmentionable happens as i would not part with them.
