I recently expanded my boys home I would say they have approximately 11 square footage of space available from the original 8 square feet they started out from. I realized both my piggies were getting bigger and demanded more running room. I do have way more toys and hides that I did not put in the cage at the time the photos were taken but they have plenty to keep them stimulated. I purchased a set of 12 plastic detachable panels that I cable tied to the original bar cage that had and I am super pleased with the results. If you have any comments or recommendations please feel free to comment and tell me

I love this!! This is super creative!! Your piglets are gorgeous! :love:
My only comment would be to add some more wood/fleece hides. Plastic hides are not very well ventilated, not super safe for piggies to chew on, and clear (which kind of defeats the purpose of the hidey). Wood hides are great as they can file down their teeth and feel secure at the same time!
If buying more hides is not an option, you can simply place a towel or blanket over the bars of the wire cage.
I hope that this helps! :)

Looks good and I’m sure they appreciate the extra space. Where is the hay? Do two piles. And also add another bottle of water. One thing to note is pellets shouldn’t be available all the time. A tablespoon per piggy each day is their limit. Bet there was some popcorning and zoomies when they moved into their new place 😁
