Wooden bridges? I don't think I've seen those. I have a couple plastic bridges but i couldnt find any way to affix them to the plastic cage and coroplast, plus the pigs don't like them. I thought about putting carpet on them but I feel like they are just too flimsy to go through all that.
I have two cages simlar to yours, one for Finn and one for Lara. I am reading your thread trying to find solution in case I run into your scenario. Mine won't be having babies but I might bring friends for my Finn and Lara making it necessary to add more room.
Currently, I have a separate playpen Finn and Lara play at different times. I physically put them in the playpen as there is no tunnel to lead them to their playpen.
I'm not sure if this is the same for all pigs, but both of mine just love to run and run and run all the time. I actually had a separate playpen for my pigs as well, which is where I got my metal panels from. I would also pick them up to move them to the playpen every day. It worked well for me, but not for my mom. She didn't like it being in the living room for all to see and smell even though I cleaned it often, which is why I decided to just extend my current one to make a more spacious and comfortable home.
When I was measuring everything, I cut the walls of the coroplast to be about 8 inches tall, just to try to minimize the amount of bedding they kicked out. I believe the cage has 8 inch or 9 inch walls as well.
My big mistake was deciding to cut the wall of the plastic cage. I didn't cut the whole thing off, but immediately realized my mistake. Now I'm stuck trying to put it back together. The coroplast wasn't as big of a deal since I could duct tape it, but yeah.
I've since put the blue cage back together in one piece and left the two cages close together while trying to find a bridge and whatnot, and they started going back and forth without the bridge. Didn't think they could do that. But they seem to be arguing a lot less often now, and appear to be enjoying their time apart, almost?
They will swap cages a few times a day. Picture attached.
Yes, I considered just kind of taking my current cage apart and making a full size C & C cage, but I wanted to be able to use my current cage since it was expensive. But, I guess in the end, I technically made a C & C cage. I just attached it to my old cage.
Yes, that might work. I've tried putting the plastic bridges from the cage on either side but they are more interested in getting under the ladder and flipping it around than anything else.
It would have to be really long I think.
I was thinking about that too. When I went to the store yesterday, I even looked in the reptile section to try to find something or anything long enough that would work but didn't find what I need.
A pig pillow might work, but I feel like the first thing Oliver would do is go around it and under it and push it out of the way.
I wonder if a wood platform/steps would be a better solution. But I don't know what kind of wood splinters and what doesn't in case they decide it looks yummy.
