This is what our Cage Size Guide says:
3 guinea pigs: 2x5 ft (150x60 cm) or 10 ft square = 2x4 C&C grid cage; strongly recommended for 2 guinea pigs
4 guinea pigs 2x6 ft (180x60 cm) or 12 ft square = 2x5 C&C grid cage, recommended for 2 boars or 3 sows or 1 neutered boar/2 sows
Add 2 square feet (60x30cm) for any additional guinea pig.
So four rather than three could fit[/QUOTE
Thankyou I guess I could get 5 in there as planned as there’s 12+square foot on each level ? I could always section off the levels so there’s 3 per level ? Not sure if that would work?
Wow BIG hutches! Looking furward to seeing those. Where did you order from in the end?Thankyou for your help everyone not long after this post I went and paid a deposit for a custom built hutch 3 hutches at 7ft long and 2ft wide Should be deliverd by the 17th of this month
Sorry only just spotted this post but it is incorrect. When working out cage size it's based on one storey only and additional floors do not count. Do the above advice of 3 pigs is correct. The hutch is too small for 6 sows.The hutch has 12 square feet on each floor. Together it is 24 square feet, and 24 divided by 4 is 6. (Guinea pigs need about 4 square feet each. A lone piggy would need 7.5)
Six sows could live in the hutch.
But are the cabinets included in the space? If they aren’t, six sows wouldnt work.
