    Can anyone recommend a cage suitable for 2 boars that would look nice in a front room? They are currently in a 4x2 c&c cage but are looking at changing it to something like the ferplast indoor cottage 2 tier. They used to have a bigger c&c cage with a loft but when we moved house we didnt have the room so reduced it to what it is now.

    Edit: have seen a Lounge Small pet cage on gumtree close to us, measurements are: 116cm tall, 108cm wide and 56cm deep. Could this be suitable at all?


    We have 2 house rabbits as well so we need to try and fit in space for their hay tray, food etc and litter tray in the room too.

    Thanks in advance :)

    i would try for a bigger cage,120 cm x 60 cm is the minimum recommended cage for 2 piggies,pets at home have 140 cm ferplast cage on offer,ive the liberta cage that is 150cmx 77cm from pet planet,ive 2 boys in this ,and has a stand,and messane area,which i adapted with fleece.you need to provide an area for roaming freely if you are going to get a small cage.hope you find a suitable cage,there are lots of pictures of cages in this section.

    We were looking for slightly bigger than the 120x60 tbh but were after something aesthetically pleasing like the Ferplast indoor cottage (Blame the other half!) and with 2 tiers as it worked well for them with their last cage. Will have another look through the galleries on the laptop as they dont load well on my phone.

    Thanks

    This is the Ferplast Rabbit 120 Guinea Pig and Dwarf Rabbit cage and the dimensions are 51 x 120 x 58cm. I bought this cage from Zooplus. It is easy to clean and a good sized cage to house two young boars.

    Here are some better photos of the cage when I first got it. NOTE: It did house three boars at one point but this was only temporary until I could sort out larger accommodation for them.

    Hi all. I'm Jess, the human of Frodo and Bilbo, two boars born January 1, 2017 and adopted on Feb 3.

    Cage Type:
    We initially purchased a rabbit cage but after a few days we decided it was too small for two. So we took to Amazon and purchased this Midwest Guinea Habitat Plus (white cage). The black cage is their play lobby which we detach at night. They sleep in the white cage on a table at night with us. The black cage is a poor attempt at a C&C cage. We wanted their entire cage to be C&C but we failed miserably and ended up with this annex. Worked out pretty well in this end as a daytime playpen for them.

    How many piggies are kept in it: Two boars. We plan on adding another Midwest Habitat this summer.

    How easy it is to keep clean/if you'd recommend it: I like this setup. I have a layer of coroplast in the bottom covered by two towels and a fleece blanket. I'm pretty much the sole cleaner of these cages and fitting the towels and fleece into the bottom of the Midwest Habitat is a bit exasperating in the moment but they love a clean cage so it's worth it when watching all the popcorning after the fact. In the C&C annex, I just have two dog pee pads beneath a layer of fleece which doesn't get very messy. They prefer using their litter box which contains bedding. I really like these two cages because we travel a lot and they're easy to set-up and take down.

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the land of piggies and so far our little piggy Val has settled in so well! We currently have 1 piggy as we want to understand her personality before adding another.
    So far this is our piggy cage it's a 120×60 decorated with liners and bed from piggy boutique she's amazing!

    I'm wanting to make changes to the cage, add a second level ect, and have it more open. Has anyone else done this?

    Thanks! 20170221_203829.jpg 20170221_203829.jpg
