The cage looked far too big, they didn't use the top half so I have transformed it from this:

They love it as the video suggests :(|)

you could always sell it, someone may be interested in turning a 2- into a 3-storey cage?

I would but it only consists of the base, ramp and sides, there is no roof but if anyone is interested in the bits...it's only 2 weeks old. There are also 2 hay racks that I haven't used. :)

oh no, did they not use the top storey... this is one of the cages I was looking at as I'm finding it so difficult to source C&C grids

No sadly not, they are nervous little dudes. personally, I wouldn't say it was a good buy, its a lot of bloody money for what I've got from it, the only perk for me is that its a corner cage. They probably have the same floor space though.

It is a NIGHTMARE to build too. Really would not recommend. :(

It is good as it is but for over £100, you would expect more. grrrr

Might I ask where you bought the cage and for how much? I'd like something like that as the next cage for my girls:)

Could it be that the reason they didn't use the other level was because of the ramp? I have the same cage and the ramp that comes with it is very slippy and poorly made, I carpeted mine and soon my boys were running up and down. It's a shame you had to get rid of the level as the 2 tiers make a great lot of space for a pair of boars. :)

BonBon - I got it from Zooplus for £116. Really good service, so happy with them. :)

GuineaPigg, you make a good point, I've not really give them a chance. The only thing for me is my room is quite small and it takes over, it's huge! I may in the future give it a try. :)

If you've got the space I'd hang on to the bits left over. You might get them up in the top section with ramp help and more confidence, or you might need the extra base as a place to keep a poorly piggy in the future. Just a thought!

They are fab piggies, looking happy and healthy! A credit to their piggy mum!
