    How long will it take? (shipping FAQs)

    Large Cage Dimensions

    • Interior: 27" x 56" = about 10.5 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.

    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

    • (26) 14" Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (24) Connectors in black or white, matching the grid color
    • (1) Extendable LONG Ultra Rod Set (extends 38" to 64": includes 2 rod pieces & 2 end caps) in black or white, matching the grid color
    • (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 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™ Large 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 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.

    Met all my expectations!

    <p>I am so happy I found this site. The shipping was fast and it was so easy to put together. My son and I built it in under an hour. I purchased the large size for our two pigs and it is awesome. Plenty of room for them to run and play. The cage was exactly what was promised and met all our expectations. I highly recommend this cage to all Guinea pig owners.</p>

    My pigs are very happy!

    Last Fall, my family bought one Guinea pig and we soon realized our male needed a friend. A month later we got another male. Fast forward a few more months, I realized that their cage was way too small. I searched the Internet because the pet stores in my state did not have what I was looking for. During my internet search, I came across this website and knew this was exactly what I wanted! Check out was a breeze, shipping was super quick, and most importantly, my piggies are so so happy! Is been really entertaining watching them in their new home! Their first day, in their brand new home, they played all day and probably all night! They barely napped! Thank you!

    Best place to get a cage hands down.

    After searching the internet for a while i found this website for cages. I cannot believe the service and the product I received. Also and this might sound weird I loved building it. The only complaint I have is when I was building the cover I used to many zip ties on the first section. I think there should BR a suggestion on how many zip ties to use. Other then that small little thing which is my fault mostly the cage and service is amazing!!

    Love this cage!

    I recently bought two of these cages; one for my boy piggies and one for my girls. They love them. The girls took a little more time to warm up to it(I think the size over-whelmed them) but both the boys and girls do popcorns and seem to get along better with their cage mates due to having more more for them to stretch out in. Definitely would recommend these cages if you have multiple piggies.
