I will be painting the skirting boards of my room soon and was wondering if I should move my guineas into "temporary accommodation" in another room (it would have to be their old, small cage).
When I paint the walls at a later date I will have to move them into another room anyway, but do they have to be moved for this small paint job as well?

Thanks. :)

If it was me I would, I know that when I paint the fumes always give me a head-ache not sure how it would affect the piggies.

you can now buy a water based paint for your wood and doors. This paint has no smell on it.

We bought ours from B&Q. It is a little bit dearer but well worth the money.

I have asma end every time we glossed my breathing was very bad and would i would end up off work.

The paint is great and it stays brilliant white and does not fade or go a off white. We done our living room 2 years ago and it is still brilliant white.

I would recommend this for people with bad chests and animals
