    It would be quite difficult getting a hutch big enough for 5 piggies as they do need lots of space, sorry I can't help.

    you would need atleast 16sq foot of cage space, so a bare minimum of 8 x 2 ft (preferably bigger) or a 6 x 2 ft double

    What you could do is... get a load of wood and create one yourself, have it so it's about the size of a shed and at the side have a piece of wood and string that when you pull lifts it up and so they can run free (maybe have it meshed so they can't run off) and leave it open in the summer.

    Thank you :) I was thinking of maybe connecting my 3 smaller hutches together, that would make it 10ft long, would that be ok?

    If you have an unused garage you could convert it like mine , or it can be used and bribe your grandad to do it while your mums at work :D
