I am thinking of using some guttering for a ramp. Will they chew it ? Is it safe? I noticed one of the companies selling packs for C&C cages use guttering as their ramp so thought I would give it a try as the correx one I've made is a bit bendy and springy.

Yep. When my piggies were permanent indoors I used guttering with no problems. They didn't chew it either, took some sniffs and that was it. I secured it to the next floor by drilling two holes in and then using cable ties. I secured carpet in the guttering too whilst using the holes for the ties.
Just remember when cutting them to size, angle off the ends so they are flush with the floor.
