Hi, we have recently bought to baby piggies. Cage we bought is within the recommended size, but definitely noticed they need more space. We have build an extension on the cage using C&C style walls. However, just realised the piggies can get through the gaps! We haven’t got hold of any correx yet, but can’t find where to buy any from. Can someone suggest?

Also, any temporary fixes to baby-proof? Terrified they will get out!

Thanks

Welcome to the forum. Baby piggies are escape artists!
Strips of cardboard from Cardboard boxes offer a temporary fix, or if you have extra grids, you can overlap them. Otherwise, pegging a towel or other fabric tightly against the sides might offer some extra line of defence.
