Hi I was wondering if anyone could tell me if it was ok to build my guinea pigs things for they're cage made from railway sleepers? I was going to cut them up and make a second story and ramps? If that's not possible what wood am I safe to build with?

Hello!

Unfortunately railroad sleepers can come in many types of wood, so just buying any random railway sleeper wouldn’t be a good option. Of course, don’t use used railway sleepers if anything.

Some safe woods would be solid pine, aspen, birch, and oak. Pine especially can be found very easily in most hardware stores.
