Hi,
I have 4 guineas; 2 sows 2 (intact) boars. The ladies live in an 8 square feet c and c cage and the boys live in a nine square feet. I have an indoor pen which I use when I clean them out but this is no bigger than their actual cages so kind of pointless for any sort of enrichment activity.

Basically, I was wondering if you lovely folks had any ideas for fun (for the pigs) things to do outside of their cages...

:D As your piggies are living in such big cages, I don't think it is really necessary to give them time outside the cages. They have got plenty of space inside to run about and do what they want. I think there is a thread on here somewhere about home-made piggie toys or something like that. Perhaps you could get some ideas from there, as to making them tunnels or giving them boxes to play in? My pigs have big C and C cages, too. Sometimes I give them a box filled with hay to burrow into, or sea grass baskets to gnaw on. They love those!

My three currently love a big pile of fleece pieces (off cuts I got for free from the local fabric store). The pieces are small enough for them to burrow into and push around, but not so small that they could eat or swallow them. The smallest is about the size of a cloth place-mat if that makes sense.
They also like a paper bag stuffed with hay, and their fabric tunnel.
