Hi,

I'm considering adopting a couple of himalayan boars from our local rescue, now I already have a two tier Saville grid cage which works brilliantly and I do have like 11 spare grids but the other cage that I would like to add to was bought from a company online and I'm pretty sure that they are Safco grids which are thinner than Seville and the connectors are a bit slightly smaller than the Seville one's.

I need about 33 white safco grids with connectors. I have seen the packs you can get on the net and if I am honest I am not willing to pay those prices as I got more for my money when I bought the Seville ones... or I can just buy more Seville grids whichever way is easiest.

I'm just wondering if anyone has noticed either of them going cheap, I would need about 34 of the Seville grids.

I hope my post makes sense lol.. not always great at explaining!

I live in the Nottingham area.

(I have checked out other posts and found the grids had gone up in price, my grids were only around £25 per box when I first got the Seville ones).

thanks in advance

Prices for grids really do increase don't they! I'm sure someone on the forum can help.
Wanted to say congratulations on to adopt a few boars! :)

Well I'm still having a good think about it @Chief Guinea Pig because I want to make sure that I can provide for them, I know that sounds a bit daft when I already have 7 guineas, but I'm sure you get what I mean. I'm not going to rush into something then think "errr what have I done?", it took me about a month to be sure that I wanted to adopt our sows. We did have 8 before and it was no problem but yeah, I'm just one for worrying lol. If I can get the parts for the 2 tiers then I may well adopt them, PLUS I was talking to my Mum when she came today (she gets the piggies veg for me) and she said she could make the liners because I was telling her that for one it would cost me £30.

PS - We have 4 handsome boars and 3 beautiful sows :)

Of course :) adding more piggies is a big change to think about! I'm sure you will make the right decision whatever you do! :D

Oo that's good that your mum's a sewer you'll save yourself a lot of money there. Has she made any cosies for you? x

She made their hay bags and spares (I have allergies and the hay in the rack was causing me some grief) not asked her to do house, cosies or anything like that, I tend to buy them, I don't want to break her machine LOL.

Aw :xd: Haha! I have a singer machine, very good, but I have to admit it does get a little bit worrying when you go over a thick piece! I can understand that! :))
Not had any broken needles yet lol!

Lol, I did say to her "can your machine handle sewing liners?" she was like "Of course it can!" It would save me well I hope anyway, I bought 6 liners at the end of last year and need to replace 3 due to holes on one and shrinkage... So we're talking £30 per liner.. £90 and if I do get two more guinea's that's another two liners! Plus I will eventually replace the whole lot anyway.
