So after much trial and error we’ve come to this..... Waterproof picnic blanket on the floor, then on top of that - the pink waterproof washable incontinence bed mats, the tray base is lined with disposable bed mats topped with a Primark fleece blanket, 2 hideys, 2 feeding / water stations, 3 litter trays and lots of hay, chew toys and tunnels! Think it’s fair to say my daughter and I (okay me!) got a little carried away! (Please note the radiator in the background is set low to not overheat the little fur balls!) X

It looks good. I would take out the cage and have the hides on the floor where they don’t have to jump in to get to them. I bet they’re happy!

my cage is 3x4 squares too I think it's a great size ❤ I think it would be better without the cage or with the cage outside of the run opening up into the run so they have the full length of the run to zoom about and run at full speed. also the hay rack looks a little on the small side they should never run out of hay so unless you are there 24/7 to keep a really close eye and top it up multiple times a day it may be easier to feed from a large tray or multiple large hay racks (just speaking from experience). I love the range of hides and tunnels I bet they're very happy piggy's.

:agr: re hay. They should have a pile. And pellets should be a tablespoon a day each.

Looks fantastic! I agree with the hay pile - I used to use a hay rack before I knew better and they eat so much more when you have a big pile on the floor and they love to burrow and forage in it!

:agr: I don’t use hayracks either, big hay piles all the way say my boys!

your cage looks great! (id also take out the commercial cage as well though, it breaks up their available floor space)

Looks great. People build trays out of corex for the bottom of the cage. B&Q, wickes, homebase etc do sheets of the 2mm correx that they call "floor protection" 2 sheets should fit your cage. Just duct tape them together.

Yes. Pellets are the junk food of the piggy world. Hay needs to be the main food so pile it in. You have to resist giving in to them, however much they may beg.
