I've just ordered a cage for my pigs when we get them! :yahoo: Exciting. I've gone for the fairly basic Ferplast 120.

I'm thinking about possibly taking out the hidey bit it comes with, and adding slightly bigger/higher mezzanine level with a ramp, just to maximise their space a bit. I'm wondering what to use though? I'd like it to be fairly sturdy and permanent, I'm wondering if I can get some thinnish wood, drill holes, and use cable ties, but would that be sturdy enough to hold two pigs? What can I cover it with to protect it from piggy whizz?

Thanks :lol:
I'm thinking of doing this too. Have you added a floor?

Two 2x9 c&c stacked cages.
Built it myself.
Top cage houses 3 boars.
Bottom cage houses 5 sows and 1 neutered boar.
Grids bought from wayfair.co.uk
Beam running along the underside of the top cage so I could keep the whole of the bottom cage open :)

Hi, here is the cage layout for our three pigs. We tried to give them as much space as possible. They have access to the cages and the run 24 hours a day. Any thought on how we can improve their environment would be welcomed.

Thank you, the pigs pretty much own the summerhouse! They certainly seem happy with all the space. Each of our three pigs came from different homes and were unfortunately kept in small cages. With lots of love they are now very tame and love running round the garden!

What a great set up! What do you put in the run to protect the carpet?
