Cage Changes - YEA!

Since we moved we had to put most of the pigs in their own cages, boy was that a pain when it came to cleaning, even feeding. It is so much easier when they are all open top and we can just throw the hay in there, dump in some food (in their bowl) toss in some Kale or baby carrots and keep going.

It has taken two months to get them all back in Super Large C&C cages, but finally we have done it. Yesterday we got all the boys into C&C and put Gwyn and the babies in the largest top-opening cage we have. She and the babies love the space.

The boys however did all their chattering and some even jumped at each other. We did everything we could to make them stop, and they are fine, it didn't take long actually. Two did bite their lips though. Poor things, but the large amount of space is so much nicer for them.

A couple were really funny, and stationed themselves near huge piles of hay, food bowls and drinking bottles. One was so funny, he just layed there and took from whatever he wanted, I think he sat there for 2 hours. Silly guy. Anyway, we have some girls and hopefully another pair of pigs going out this week, and one boy coming on Saturday. Trying to cut down on who we take in, for July.

  1. Do you need any coroplast? I have a spare piece, enough to make a 2x3 grid cage.
