Hi! I just wanted to share with all of you a video which I just uploaded on my YouTube channel about our outdoor enclosure which my parents very kindly built for my guinea pigs. The enclosure is 5x3 metres and will be home to 5 sows and 1 neutered boar during the warmer months. We thought this would be great for our herd as it will allow them to live a more natural life and it will be nice for them to live outdoors when the weather is better. I hope you enjoy watching the video! :)

Holy CRUD! That's the coolest piggy palace I have ever seen! SOOOO JEALOUS! It's a bit similar to what I built for my giant rabbit, but unfortunately I don't have the space for the height. I'm thinking of making something similar to this on a much smaller scale for my pig this summer- which we only have about 2 months of pig safe weather :(

Wow. That is amazing. I did wonder what would happen if it rained on the bedding. You are so lucky having parents that do all that for you let alone taking over part of their garden.

I've never come across hemp bedding before. Does it have a name or is it just hemp bedding?

Thank you! It's just called hemp I think :)

This is a very nice natural enclosure and great use of garden objects. I love the hidey bits underground. Fab that your parents have agreed to build it in your garden. I'm curious to know what sort of palace they live in during the winter, as you mentioned this is for warmer months?!:D

Thank you! We have a large C&C cage for the rest of the year which we made last week - we now have 7 sows and 1 boar who was recently neutered so he is currently separated from the sows in a 2x3 cage but he will be introduced to them during the Easter holidays. Here is a picture of their cage :)
