    How long will it take? (shipping FAQs)

    XL Cage Dimensions

    • Interior: 27" x 71" = about 13 Square Feet of cage space.
    • Exterior: 30" x 76" when assembled = you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 6.5 feet to accommodate this cage.

    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.

    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.

    Covered Cage Kit Includes

    • (30) 14" Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (28) Connectors in black or white, matching the grid color
    • (2) Long Ultra Rods (37" each with 2 end caps each) 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 15 colors!
      The base is cut and scored so you only have to secure the flaps. (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.)
    • Cable ties in black or white, matching the grid color. Reinforces the connections, making 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™ XL 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 2x5?

    • Up to 3 adult guinea pigs comfortably. It varies a bit depending upon your group. This is actually the recommended size for 2 males. Males typically need a bit more room than females. They need space to get away from each other when they want to.
    • It would be possible to house a larger, well-bonded group of 4, perhaps as many as 5, but that would really be pushing it.
    • ONE guinea pig needs at least a 2x3 grid-sized cage. This cage could temporarily be divided to accommodate splitting a bickering pair or separating a male and female. You just need a Cage Divider or our "Wall of Silence" down the middle of a 2x5 to instantly create two 2x2.5 grid cages. But, as we really recommend a 2x3 for even one guinea pig, using this cage to separate them should be a temporary situation.

    Pretty & Pink Piggie Palace

    I bought a pink XL Standard Covered cage and it is huge! My poor Ginger & Snap were living in a cramped store bought cage but now they have a Pink Palace! Its great!

    My reasoning for 3 stars in the Service category; My cage was delivered within two days of ordering which was amazing!, but when I opened it I had someone else s' packaging slip ( and my packaging slip) and Assembly Manual. I had all the pieces for my cage though, but not having the Manual made making the cover really complicated. I looked everywhere for specific directions, I couldn't even find any on the website or on google. So my dad and I looked at pictures and hopefully we did it right but we were both a little frustrated. So who ever packages things needs to pay attention to what they are doing!

    Overall wonderful cage, quick shipping, and poppin' piggies. :)

    Great popcornin' fun!

    Easy to put together. took about 2 hours to complete. My first pig lived in a very small store bought cage, and he was lonely. so we bought this cage and tomorrow we r buying another pig for him! wonderful! my cavy keeps on pop corning! it's fabulous! only complaint is my guinea pig keeps on nibbling on the edge of the coroplast, and I'm not quite sure what to do about it as i don't want him to ingest it. overall, wonderful cage!
