Can anyone recommend a hutch big enough for 5 guinea-pigs?
Oops sorry - that isnt what you meant! Was just into guinea pig napping mode!
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?
get a shed
I can't get a shed, It has to be a hutch
I don't see why not, I think it should be fine.:001_smile:
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
