    Cage and Top

    Our Jumbo Covered Cage
    is too large to fit in one box.

    Please add the two items below
    to your cart separately.

    We apologize for the extra ordering clicks, but this helps keep the shipping cost as low as possible (one box will be large,
    the other a bit smaller).

    Jumbo Cage Dimensions

    • Lower level = 27" x 84.5" = about 16 Square Feet of lower cage space!
    • Upper level = about 2 Square Feet of additional space
    • Total = about 18.5 Square Feet of cage space
    • Exterior: 30" x 90" when assembled = you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 7.5 feet to accommodate this cage.

    Upper Levels are Good For

    • Providing variety to your guinea pigs to help reduce boredom.
    • A potential Kitchen or Hay area separate from the main cage area. But please note, not all guinea pigs will want to use this.
    • A get-away area for some guinea pig pairs or groups who may not get along all the time. When one guinea pig can get out of sight from another, that can go a long way towards keeping the peace and keeping harassment down.

    Upper Level Things to Consider

    • Older guinea pigs typically loose their interest in going up a ramp to an upper level. Some are not able to as arthritis can bother guinea pigs, just like it can people.
    • Not all guinea pigs will want to use a ramp. It can take patience (as in days, weeks or even months) to get a guinea pig to change and adapt. Do not expect overnight results when adding an upper level. Training with pieces of food can help.
    • The gentler the slope of the ramp, the better, but more slope also takes up more precious downstairs cage space, so it's a trade-off.

    Flip-Fold Cover™

    Our Flip-Fold Covers™ are designed with you and your guinea pig's safety in mind. We compromise on neither and give you the best of both!

    • Easy
      Our cover design is based on many years of guinea pig experience with many hundreds of guinea pigs. When you are standing in front of your cage, you need to be able to open the cage easily and quickly. You need immediate access along the full length of the cage.

      With Flip-Fold Covers™, you only need one hand to open and close our covers, and you don't need something to lean them against to hold them up. Most people have their cages against a wall. Our covers do not require you to rest the cover against your wall, leaving unsightly scratch marks. They rest nicely pushed midway out of the way or all the way back. Or you can just flip the front section over the back section.
    • Strong
      Not only are they easy to use, our custom-designed and custom-manufactured Ultra Rods and Wonder Bars are very high-quality and provide added durability and strength.
    • Safe and Convenient
      Not only are they safe for the guinea pigs, they won't fall down and whack you in the head while you are trying to feed or pick up your piggies or clean your cage!

      In addition, our covers are reachable by the average person who can reach moderately across the cage. You don't have to be super tall to manage the covers safely, so it's safe for a younger person to simply fold back the front half to access piggies quickly.

    Counting Cage Space

    Please keep in mind that you should only count the lower level when determining how much cage space is required for your guinea pigs. Upper levels DO NOT COUNT in determining how much space you are providing. They are used occasionally and sometimes not at all by some or all of your guinea pigs.

    Coro Height Preference

    This refers to the HEIGHT of the COROPLAST on ONE long-side of the cage -- for the back wall.

    • 6" (inches) is standard. 6" sides all the way around maximizes ventilation and visibility, and it is generally high enough to keep in bedding for most guinea pigs. Also, a water bottle spout resting on the top of the 6" Coroplast is a good height for guinea pigs to drink from.
    • 12" (inches) is good if the long side of your cage is going up against a wall. This helps prevent hay (and in some cases bedding) from being kicked up and getting stuck against the wall. You can always cut it down later if you decide it doesn't work for you. The 12" option is just to help you keep your floor and wall cleaner in some circumstances.

    NOTE: We do NOT offer 12" walls all the way around because we do NOT recommend it. It cuts off too much air circulation for the guinea pigs.
    In addition, even if you wanted it regardless of our advice, coroplast
    is only 48 inches wide and that would require 51 inches.

    Deluxe Covered Cage Kit Includes

    • (48) 14" Powder coated Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (42) Connectors in black or white
    • (1) Extendable Long Ultra Rod Set (extends 38" to 64": 2 rod pieces & 2 end caps per set) in black or white, matching the grid color
    • (2) C&C Wonder Bars for support (29"x1" custom-designed by us for C&C Cages) in black or white, matching the grid color
    • 4mm Coroplast bottom in your choice of 16 colors! The base and loft are cut and scored so you only have to secure the flaps with the rivets provided. (Coroplast base is scored and folded for shipping, which makes an indented "crush" line, but it does not affect the function of the cage. It's barely noticeable when fully assembled.)
    • Rivets for fastening all Coroplast flaps.
    • 27" Ramp in Coroplast color of your choice and edging to match grid color with grey Carpet.
    • Cable ties that match the grid color. (Using cable ties to reinforce the grid connections helps make the cage extra tight and super secure.)
    • Easy-to-follow, color assembly instructions with photos
    • Two-page Guinea Pig Care Sheet

    Please NOTE about the Cage Bottom

    The cage does not have grids on the bottom. They are unnecessary. The cage is designed to sit nicely on a flat surface -- a table top, a desk, the floor (if it's draft-free), etc.

    However, if you desire, you can make a cage stand out of grids. Please see our matching Cage Cubby™ Jumbo System if you are interested in a cage stand.


    ASSEMBLY

    We include detailed instructions with every kit, but if you have questions, we are always more than happy to help you out! Just contact us--pop us a note with your phone number and we will call you back as soon as possible with in-person assistance!

    PLACEMENT

    Please do not put the Coroplast directly on a hardwood floor. Moisture from the air and/or wood can get trapped and has nowhere to go and hence can cause sweating -- which has NOTHING to do with the quality or character of the cage. Nor is the cage leaking. All you have to do is put something absorbent down first like a towel or carpet and set the cage bottom on that instead of directly on wood.

    NEW! Rivets on the Flaps!

    • We've updated our cage design to make it even easier and more secure than ever! All of our Coroplast bases now come with nice, clean holes -- professionally punched in the appropriate locations. We include our new, easy-snap-in plastic rivets for securing the base. 
    • The rivets, while very secure when in place, can also be popped back open with a little separation pressure should you need to dissemble your cage and are generally reuseable.

    How many Guinea Pigs will fit in a 2x6?

    • Up to 4 adult guinea pigs comfortably. It varies a bit, depending upon your group. For example, rarely will 4 adult males be compatible even in this large of a cage. Usually 3 males is about the largest group that will get along together in any caged environment in the long run.
    • It would be possible to house a larger, well-bonded group of 5, perhaps as many as 6, but that would really be pushing it.
    • ONE guinea pig needs at least a 2x3 grid-sized cage. And this is why the JUMBO size is IDEAL if you need to divide a cage because a pair is fighting OR you need to separate a male and female to prevent pregnancy. You just need a Cage Divider or our "Wall of Silence" down the middle of a 2x6 to instantly create two 2x3 grid cages.

    Great!

    I love this cage! I can make a hay room, toy area and sleep area and still have enough room for my Guinea pigs to run around and eat and sleep. I'm glad I got the jumbo now! Wonderful company to work with as well. Thank you so much for all your help and time!

    Love everything

    The jumbo cage with wide loft is the best you can get anywhere. The cover is great, because I feel it makes my pigs feel safer. The website is run great, and Sue is extremely helpful, and nice. The shipping was fast. Nothing bad about the experience at all. I would definitely recommend it.

    Awesome cage

    This is a really awesome cage. The minute I put my 3 guinea pigs in it, they were running around and squealing with delight! The directions annoyed me a little, but the outcome was worth it. FYI the cage is 27 1/2x87 just in case it matters to some. I wouldn't hesitate getting this cage at all.

    I feel better already

    I am a new cavy owner. I bought the biggest cage that the pet store had to offer. As soon as I assembled the cage, I knew that it would be a problem for many reasons. One problem is that it would be extremely difficult to clean. Another big problem is that it obviously was not going to be enough room for TWO sweet guinea pigs. So, I started doing research to find a better alternative for my cavy guys and stumbled upon a few fantastic sites about guinea pigs, which all lead me here. I just got the package of grids, connectors, etc., delivered on my doorstep today. I assembled it all in less than 20 minutes. I will be working on the upstairs "loft" portion tomorrow night. Pretzel and Mr. Nibbles LOVE their new "apartment". They immediately started running laps to check it all out. I already feel better just knowing that it will be so much easier to keep clean AND that my little cavy guys will be happier now that they have the living space they deserve.Special thanks to Sue for all that you do on behalf of the cavies and their families!

    Easy to clean and extra roomy

    I recently bought a C&C cage and my 1-year-old piggies, Pepsi and Nora, love it! Before, we had them cramped in a smaller cage. As soon as i finished making their new 2 story home i put them in and they got so excited! I am so glad I invested in this cage. It is so easy to clean and extra roomy. I am now preparing to add a new piggy to our family!:-)
