I've bought a beco litter tray to use as kitchen area in the c&c I'm setting up for my first ever guineas! It looks likely now we will be rescuing babies so I'm worried about them getting in and out.
Whats better, cutting a hole or using a bendy bridge?
If you've cut a tray, how did you do it?
They'll be indoor and on fleece so was hoping to contain some mess and with the tray.
Thanks for much for your help

I would try the bendy bridge, but as long a one as you can, that might make a more gentle slope.

I used 32 litre underbed storage boxes as hay trays when mine were young. They just jumped in with no probs. I now use flat plastic trays sold as boot racks by ikea.

I stand the magazine rack with hay in it on the tray



when I adooted some elderly sows I cut the side out of the underbed storage box

Great ideas. I guess once I have the pigs I can see how they manage!
