I am currently on the hunt for a new cage for my two boars. I would prefer to build one myself so that it is a good size for them and they have plenty of room for popcorning! They are both just under 3, so they still have excellent mobility so multi-level cages wouldn't be a problem (they have lived in a couple before and got on well with them). I am planning on keeping them inside for the most part, but I'm also looking for a hutch/run for outside during the day when the weather is nice. Also, if anyone has any recommendations for fleece liner tutorials, places to buy them or the supplies to make them that would be greatly appreciated :)
Thank you in advance Poppy, Pippin and Oreo :roll:

I have mine in an L shaped C&C on a table so they’re higher. A x3 would be quite tricky to clean out though I imagine - I need a stool to clean out the angle of my cage! Also use hemp bedding which I love.

That looks great! Did you use any specific tables? I’m struggling to find some that I think are suitable :)
