    Large Cage Dimensions

    • Lower level = 27" x 56" = about 10.5 Square Feet of cage space
    • Upper level = about 4.5 Square Feet of additional space
    • Total = about 15 Square Feet of cage space
    • Exterior: 30" x 60" when assembled = you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 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.
    • While a wider upper level provides more space on top, it is more difficult to reach under a two-grid deep upper deck. It is trickier to clean and to retrieve your guinea pigs for lap time.
    • 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.

    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

    • (36) 14" Powder coated Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (34) Connectors in black or white
    • (1) C&C Wonder Bar 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 Large Cage Stand 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 2x4?

    • Up to 2 adult guinea pigs comfortably. It varies a bit depending upon your group. This is the recommended cage size for two guinea pigs. Males typically need a bit more room than females and while this cage can work, we ideally recommend a 2x5 size for two males.
    • It would be possible to house a well-bonded group of 3, but 4 would really pushing it in this size cage. Keep in mind with more guinea pigs in a smaller cage, it's also more work to keep it clean.
    • ONE guinea pig needs at least a 2x3 grid-sized cage. This cage size is really too small to divide, so you should make your decision wisely if you suspect you may have to divide the cage. In that case, you should go with a larger size to start with.

    Recessed Ramp

    Our Deluxe, multi-level cages use our new recessed ramp design! This design provides a more stable cage overall without the need to overlap grids in the front of the cage.

    Versatility

    You get a more professional look and the ability to add or remove a top as desired.

    Our Ingenious Reinforced Ramp!

    We invented the Reinforced Coroplast Ramp! Our Coro ramps are very strong as they are reinforced FOUR times along the length of the ramp with a strong custom wire made just for us. This keeps the shape of the walls and adds to the overall strength of the ramp while at the same time, still giving you some flexibility in how you adapt it for your own use!multi-colored cage

    I KNOW this cage will fit in my space!


    I've read the cage dimensions and have measured my space. GRIDS are 14", NOT a 12" FOOT! For example: 2x4 Grids needs 2.5 x 5 FEET of space.

    <p>I am so glad to have found this company. I did not realize how large of a cage was required to happily keep 2 Guineas. The two were kept separate until the cage arrived and were introduced to it together. Its been complete harmony ever since. They both have developed their own personalities and entertain us daily. They are my other two children &lt;3 Thank you for all of your information, and help. Fast and friendly service!</p>

    Amazing Hedgehog Cage

    Product:
    Service:
    I bought this cage over 6 months ago for a new baby hedgehog. It arrived so fast and was packaged very well. It was easy to put together and everything fit with no gaps. I purchased the 10" walls and the cover not knowing how big Q-Bert was going to get. He is still a small hedgehog and I don't use the cover because he can't get out. The cage is very sturdy, it doesn't have any sharp edges and is well worth the price.The colorplast is durable and easy to clean. Q-Bert runs around the whole cage all night, up the ramp, down the ramp and over again. I am so glad that I found this company and Q-Bert loves his cage.

    This cage is wonderful!

    Product:
    Service:
    <p>I was nervous about buying a cage online that I hadn't actually seen in person, but based on the reviews I read, I went ahead and ordered one. I'm SO glad I did. I wouldn't have been able to buy a cage this nice in any pet store in my area. We were originally going to get 2 piggies, but ended up getting 3 baby guinea pigs. They LOVE their cage. They weren't even in it 2 days and they were already popcorning. It took them about 2 days to figure out the ramp/loft, but once they did that is their favorite place to be (other than in their kitchen eating!)</p>

    Absolutely worth the price!

    Rating:
    I have built cages like this in the past and this time decided to be lazy and order one so that I wouldn't have to drive from store to store looking for the grids. Also, cutting the chloroplast correctly to fit the size you need (without cutting yourself or your flooring) was the worst part of making them. I went crazy and got funky colors for the 2nd level. I had trouble placing my order and was amazed that on a Sunday, my email was replied to immediately. The problem was with my computer and I placed the order Sunday. My cage was delivered on Wednesday. I was also impressed to see "please deliver to side door" hand written on the box so the delivery person couldn't miss it. When it arrived, it was indeed at our side door!



    The instructions that come with the kit are wonderful and very easy to follow. I put all of it together myself except for installing the ramp which really needed an extra hand to get it attached in exactly the right spot.



    My pigs refused to go up the ramp when I tried to shove them up there, but when I was cleaning it a few days later, I put one pig on the second level and left the room. When I returned a minute later, the other pig had joined her up there. They haven't used it since, but I have hope that they will at some point. If they never do, the second level will be a great place for storage.



    I will say that cleaning under the loft is quite a challenge as my hand won't reach all the way under there. A small broom of some sort will be needed.



    The price of these cages may shock some people...but there are no store bought cages that even come close to being big enough to make pigs happy. With the color, size, and other options available, the great instructions, amazing customer service, and the ease of having the chloroplast cut to size for you...this really can't be beat.

    So much room!!

    Product:

    I bought this cage for my hedgehog actually. I know they are meant for guniea pigs but hedgehogs also need a lot of ground space for exploring since they are not good climbers. He absolutely loves it!! It was kind of a pain to put together but after it was done the labor was worth it. All of his toys fit and he still has a lot of room. I lined it with fleece so I can just pull it out and throw it in the washing machine and then it's clean. It is a little difficult to clean under the loft but I just bought a scrubby brush with a longer handle and it reaches just fine. Order was shipped very fast and tracking number provided helped me figure out the exact delivery date. I am happy I purchased this cage.

    I've Never Seen My Piggy So Happy!

    Product:
    Service:
    When I first got my guinea pig Pepper, I bought a "starter cage" from the same store. Unless I took her out, she only came out of her little cave to eat. After just a few days of living in her new home, she now zips around her cage just for the joy of it. There is now plenty of room for new toys and another piggy, if I adopt one. I love watching her play!



    I highly recommend this product because it is durable. I know because Pepper attacks everything and the house is unmarked. The customer service is great, and the cage came after only a few days, in all the correct colors (go wild, by the way!).

    Love it

    We bought this cage and we love it. My little guy was so happy when I put him in. He was running all around and up the ramp and down. He is so happy. We're getting him a friend tomorrow and can't wait to see how he does. Lots of room. Great cage. Took a while to put together and i used a lot of wire ties and the cage is going no where. Very sturdy and doesn't move. I wish I had room for a bigger one. Thank you for having this product. I don't understand why stores don't carry this. It's a must have for them.

    Not as impressed as I had hoped to be...

    Product:
    Service:
    The shipping speed was phenomenal (the cage arrived at my home less then 48 hours after I ordered it) so the service definitely receives 5 stars. The product however was only okay. First of all the instructions were less then adequate. I actually needed to disassemble multiple parts after getting them together because the instructions did not say (and in some cases it was not readily apparent) which way to position the connectors. It was both time consuming and frustrating. Next was the fact that after the cage was completely assembled it is not as rugged as I had anticipated/hoped. The size is perfect and provides plenty of room for my daughters 2 pigs, but it is not very sturdy-even after adding many wire ties for extra support. Overall the cage is good, just not as great as I expected for the price I paid.

    This cage is HUGE

    Product:
    Service:
    I never thought the cage could be so nice and spacious like this for my two male guinea pigs. They love it and seem happier than ever now that they can run around and play more. The assembly was simple to understand... I mean, if a 15 year old like me can put it together alone, anyone can. Its just really time consuming to put it all together. From start to finish it took me about 3-4 hours, so you need to make sure to have some time on your hands. Its totally worth it though. This cage is perfect and the shipping was quick. The colors I chose are just right. Thank you so much!

    love this cage!!!

    Product:
    Service:
    When I got my guinea pigs I hadn't a clue that the cage I got from the pet store wouldn't be big enough for my pigs (even though I was told by the owner that it would). After getting them I noticed that they loved to popcorn around but hardly had the room for it. I knew that I needed to get a bigger cage, and quickly. After doing some research I found out about C and C cages, but I was having some problems finding all the materials I needed. Thankfully I found this site (I'm not only thankful for the store part, but also for the vast amount of info on the sister site.) and found the perfect cage. I received the cage in a timely manner, the instructions were wonderfully made, and within no time my piggies were popcorning around without running into anything.

    This Cage is HUGE! My 2 girls are still getting used to it they aren't quite sure what to do with all the room they have.

    The back corner of the cage under the loft is a bit hard to reach if you are short, but other than that we are completely happy with this cage.
