i'v got a hutch but i'm worried about the pigs falling down the ramp or knocking things down it. i dont want any of them to get injured. the ramp is similar to the one in this hutch. haven't got a photo of mine

To stop them falling down you could attach something like picture frame or just a strip of thin wood to act as a banister to stop them falling/jumping off. You can also line it with fleece/short carpet or something similar to give the pigs some grip when they're going up and down it?

Hope that helps!
