I have a C&C cage and my pigs seem to want to chew on the grids rather than there chew stoys. is it ok for them to chew on the grids.

It won't do them any harm! I have a fair few bar chewers here - especially at meal times!

Well its coated in thin plastic stuff... so just watch they don't make too much off a mess of that... I *think* the pieces are too small to do harm though.

mine do it as well, the grids i have are silver metal so nohting come soff, but one of my pigs Harvey actually uses the grids like a ladder, lol, the biting only becomes a problem if he developes mouth sores, usually at the corners of his mouth, just keep checking

My girls do it on their cage too! Not a problem, but like Michelle says, to check their mouths often.
