anywhere from every 3-5 days for a full bedding change. It depends on the size of your cage (the smaller the cage the more often they’ll need cleaning out). It will need to be poop picked at least once a day regardless of what type of bedding you useIf I got fleece bedding how often would I need to clean their inclosure?
I recommend getting premade liners and putting the thin blankets on top of thatI got my fleeces from an online fabric shop 18 months ago and compared to those I see in photos on here, they are very thin and can get smelly quite fast, even though pee is going through to the pads. Should I be getting the ones you see rolled up for gifts, from a cheap shop, as mine certainly weren‘t £3 each?
I have that fleece! The piggies love it lolI absolutely love fleece and I don't spend alot of money on it. Each fleece I buy is very pretty, soft, good size and good value! You need to use polar fleeces, they're 2.99 each. I think primark to them but I get mine from my local garden centre the cherry tree barn. I also ordered some really pretty butterfly polar fleeces from the online home shop! I don't have any good pictures of the fleece but it is lovely, here it is. (See picture Attached) It can be flattened but I always give mine an extra layer so they can hide under it (with it pegged to one side) it was 2.99 per fleece and I brought quite a few! I always use puppy pads underneath and only change them if needed. I don't like to waste them. They can be quite pricey but I get a packet of 105 for £10 from the cherry tree barn my local garden centre and it lasts me forever! Best of luck!View attachment 159456
it's up to you, you can always try one out worst case scenario you lose £3, mine quite like to burrow in a folded fleece as well. The ones I purchased were fairly thin as well, but I prefer that they go through to the puppy pad and dry and then I just dispose of the disgusting puppy pad! I did spend alot of money originally on guinea pig fleeces which were very thick, but the pee just stayed in the fleece, getting all smelly, wet and heavy so I had to change fairly quickly! I actually only change the thin cheap fleece once a week but I have quite a big cage, but admittedly it could benefit from being changed a day earlier but generally have more time on a Saturday to do it! I only change the puppy pads when they're wet if they haven't weed on them I'll just reuse them.
