    Just popped over from the dog forum as I'm getting two guinea pigs tomorrow. They are Texel littermate boars. The only problem we have is choosing names for them, any suggestions?

    Where did you mange to find the C&C grids? I struggled to get any even on EBay. In the end my OH made mine using an old book case and some aviary mesh.

    Have you looked on Amazon? That's where I have always got mine from in the past.

    Just checked there - http://www.amazon.co.uk/White-Wire-...VZ9M/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1357158671&sr=8-4

    The price seems to have soared since I last bought them :eek:

    i have 15 guinea pigs at the moment. all are rescue piggies that have had bad experiences but have a great life now. i have 6 huge hutches and an indoor cage. they live together as follows:
    molly - currently on her own as her sister died and she doesn't seem to like other piggies
    beau and woody - sow and neutered boar
    blossom and her 2 daughters, nutmeg and hazel from a terrible life of back to back pregnancies (3 babies died)
    honey, hope and heidi - 3 sisters, hope was born blind
    angel and harry - sow and neutered boar - angel had a c section recently due to back to back pregnancies in her previous home. the baby died but thankfully she recovered.
    frankie and benny - angels' babies that arrived at my house with her - all were in poor condition
    storm and pinocchio - 2 boars rescued recently
    if anyone is interested i make cosy cups, tunnels and snuggle sacks to help fund the vets bills that accompany these little pigs:)
