My cage is 4x2 with a 1x2 loft with a stand underneath (I needed the room to store all the piggy stuff underneath) and a lid (just in case the cat sneaks in without me knowing). I cable-tied it together as well as using connectors to make it more secure. 0B9E8E2C-F825-4B17-AC11-3CF5526BF41D.jpeg I keep my 2 baby piggies in here. I bought the whole thing from candcguineapigcages.co.uk. Ive had it for about a week, and it’s so much easier to clean be auss I can actually reach the corners unlike my old hutch! The piggies started popcorning as soon as they were in there. They’ve really come out of themselves since having loads of space - they let me watch them, they rarely hide, and they’ve started taking food from my hand. It’s hard to believe what a difference it’s made to their personalities! The fleece is from Pampered Piggies Boutique - I absolutely love it! All the furniture is from pets at home

I’ve just made a new arrangement for the pigs pen. The pigs are now in two separate pens because the boys can’t be together in one pen. The bottom cage is attached to the pen with an open hatch. One of the pens is 1meter x 1,60 meters and the other is 2 meters x 1meter x 1,5 meters.

These homemade floor cages are each about 2,5 meters squared. I made it by lining the floor with water proof foil and vet bed bedding. I separated the cages apart by putting cage walls together. It is filled with lots of toys hay racks and cosy hiding places. I extended one of the cages by making the bottom of a cupboard a part of their territory.

6x2 c&c double cage from the c&c website and 6x5 run made from grids from amazon. Run floor is a wipeable table cloth and the cages have fleece from ziggies piggies. I have 4 boys and 5 girls but 3 of them are only babies atm. Long term we plan to extend the cage area so they have more space. They get daily run time and once the sun starts shining they will go outside in a run often too.

Has anyone got cages that are also used for something else? For example we used the Ikea lack rectangular coffee tables and made into a run/ tv stand. We don’t have much space in our front room so decided this would work for us but am curious to see if anyone has something similar. :)

Home made grid cage (Not c&c) with hay loft.

Timber base (b and q)
Interlocking storage boxes (argos)
Perspex (ebay)

The floor area is made up of correx, puppy training pads and finally fleece.

We started with a ferplast 2 tier. But found it impractical for cleaning out and accessing in general. So we made this for them today. It is about 1.2 x 1 mtrs with a hay loft 0.6 x 0.4 mtrs.

My 3 new cages for our 6 pigs. Just trying some new cage ideas... my old ones created a little mess so we upgraded to these. My parents allowed me to dedicate this part of our living room for the pigs.
One cage (2 pigs) is 90cm x 1meter, which is over the minimum.
Ps. We cut holes in between the plastic so that the pigs can safely move around. Hope u like it!

Just wondering, how many pigs do you have in your cage?

I added an L shaped loft for the boys and used the FloPlast gutter for the ramp (stuck on carpet tile). The boys seem to like it as they go up there every now and then. Fudge had a snooze up there earlier 😁 I need to cut the coroplast and make some liners then I’ll be done with it...for now. I want to possible add another loft the other side with a gutter bridge in between. We’ll see :woot:

My cage is an adjusted c and c to fit in my space. My two boys are still very little as you can see in the picture (7 weeks on Friday and only weighing 313 and 330 grams respectively) although in their teenage years I may have to expand a little! It is currently 112cm x 72cm and a 1x2 c and c hay loft. Is this big enough

It is a quite tricky to spot clean but great for the complete clean once a week, I take out the correx grids and disinfect.

It does come apart quite a lot and the connectors do often come out of the grids but this is fine because it is easy to fix.
