just hit the report button and pop the reason in and the mods will sort out moving it @timmypiggy
Or a house trained ban hammer for hire who happens to be awake at stupid o'clock!
Extended the boys to a 2x5 had enough materials left from building the 2x4 and they had started bickering so I decided to extend to hopefully avoid a falling out. The coroplast base is a mess as i had to tape bits together because I didn't have the right size of coroplast left but it does the job until I can buy new coroplast. Was originally going to purchase a new 2x6 but the 2x5 is bigger than I thought, so we will see how it goes. It saves me some money anyway.
This is Noel and Liams rock star pad before they moved in and made it their own
Last night the coroplast finally arrived, so I was able to put together my girls' new and improved 2x5 cage! And I'm testing out non-fleece bedding under the hay to see if it's easier to tidy up. So far the answer is a definite yes!
Thistle and Clover are in hiding, but you can see Flor's sweet little face peeking out of their tunnel
This is my piggy cage, we have recently extended it as I'm adopting two more piggies to bond with my pair Its about 2.3m x 1.2m (although it is shorter at the end with the litter tray in)
I'm hoping the pics work!
Wow looks great!
Aw, thank you!
i have a 6x2 stacking cage and i have alot of diffuculty cleaning it out that i resorted to subtrate bedding in the lower cage,but ive seen you have put yours on a small table,that is a great solution !
Yeah i had to have it higher up so i could clean it out better as i have Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis it was agony doing it on the floor, the boys seems happier also, Liam was very skittish when i ever i walked past him on the floor but been on my level seems to really work for him he greets me with a kiss at the door now. I use shavings on the bottom tier and just puppy pads with hay on the top, so much easier
Perran and Ruan's current 4x2 layout. The small plastic litter tray is where I put their fresh food, as the diagonal means they can both eat together side-by-side. And their dry food bowl is just out of shot in the near corner.
Closeup of their new giant bedbox. The smaller box is where they like to hang out to eat and poo, and Perran also likes to sit under the wicker flap thing (Ruan prefers under the plastic stool).
Just upgraded the girls to a 2x4 with a 2x1 loft and they love it, lots of that bubbling noise they make when they're exploring, plenty of room for hay toys but also for zooming round the race track on the outside
Love seeing everyone's lovely setups
Does anyone use the c&c grids without the correx? Having to change my set up due to house move and sadly gone from 3 to 2 piggies recently. I currently have the largest of the Ferplast indoor cottage with an additional small run attached at the front (c&c grids lined with a fleece blanket) but the gps mainly stay inside the hutch. I've got a square space in the new house (approx 115cm X 85cm) so was thinking of a big c&c grid lined again with fleece with the addition of a couple of Hop Inn tunnels (one for sleeping and one filled with hay) with water and feeding bowls in the space. I want to keep it flexible so I can extend the grid when possible (hence wanting to do it without correx).
Will layers of fleece (I have Ziggy's Piggies fleeces) work without correx underneath or should I play safe and add the correx?!
Any thoughts and advice on a flexible single level living space for 2 piggies very welcome
I have put a waterproof picnic blanket under Noel and Liams bedding in their C&C cage for warmth and to protect the correx a bit, i don't know if that would work for you, i just hose it off every week and swap with the other one till it dries. You can see it on my pic earlier on in this thread you could still put the fleeceys on top of that (but i turn it over to the waterproof side facing up now) Hope that helps.
The 3x2 C&C cage arrived today...making the dage now 8x2
I have set it up, but the 3x2 part is separated for Snowy when he gets the all clear from the vet (appointment is Sunday) because he is still. Quarantine.
I couldn't take the full cage in one go, sorry everyone. Pleas excuse the mess, as I have a lot to sort out (again).
Can I just ask where you got all your lovely pink cosies and fleece etc, I'd love a pink themed cage for my 4 girls
Sure! The pink and white dotty fleece is from Matalan (think it was £5) and the pink floral fleece is from Asda. The bigger tunnels, pee pads and pink and white heart house is from a company called Fleece Cages (she has a fb page) and the pink tunnel in the middle is from The Cosy Hut on Etsy. The little cuddle cup in the corner is from Stephs piggiee paradise and the natural bits are from the hay experts and pets at home xx
Thanks a lot, I'll have a look to see if they still sell them.Your cage looks great.
Hi. Has anyone converted the space under the stairs in a house into a pigie den?
