OTHER PEOPLE’s cages for guinea pigs – Good ideas / bad ideas

Here at BlueStoneCommerce, we like to study cages for guinea pigs – especially homemade ones. Manufactured cages for guinea pigs generally seem to us to be a) too small and b) not really innovative.

Here’s a cage I found on YouTube with a cool floor-plan…



Just a couple no-no’s first. It looks like they used electrical tape to bind some of the grids together. This can get chewed and/or eaten. Secondly, some of the floor areas are covered with wood. Yes, that’s ton’s better than a wire bottom because it won’t harm fragile toes and feet, but wood absorbs urine and other liquids and thus, captures odors. For best performance, flooring should be waterproof and smooth.

One thing I like is the innovative layout. It has two balcony levels – connected by a bridge. BlueStoneCommerce has a very similar floor-plan in a futuristic-looking cage we call the Millennium 200.
