    How long will it take? (shipping FAQs)

    Small Cage Dimensions

    • Interior: 27" x 41" = about 7.5 Square Feet of cage space.
    • Exterior: 30" x 44" when assembled = you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 3.75 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 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

    • (20) 14" Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (20) Connectors in black or white, matching the grid color
    • (1) Extendable Ultra Rod Set (extends 38" to 54": includes 2 rod pieces & 2 end caps) 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™ Small 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 2x3?

    • 1-2 guinea pigs. This is the MINIMUM cage size for 1 or 2 guinea pigs. This cage is too small for 3 or more guinea pigs.
    • ONE guinea pig needs at least a 2x3 grid-sized cage. TWO guinea pigs who get along well can also live in this 2x3 grid-sized cage. Although we do recommend a larger cage, this will suffice.
    • The 2 guinea pigs should be a BONDED PAIR. If you have two new males who have not been together yet in a pet home, then in all likelihood, this cage will be too small. Or if you have two guinea pigs who do not get along -- either they bicker all the time or occasionally -- then this cage is too small.
    • This cage size may not be divided to accommodate two guinea pigs who do not get along, nor is it appropriate for separating two guinea pigs of the opposite sex. It is just not big enough for that.

    Guinea Pigs should have a Friend

    Just a note that guinea pigs are a social, herd animal and are happier and healthier in pairs or groups. If you only have one, please consider the best interests of your pet and adopt a same-sex friend.

    Great Cage

    <p>My daughter wanted to adopt a guinea from our local shelter so she needed a cage. (Of course she brought home two!) We bought this cage and love it! Love that the back side is higher, it helps keep hay off the floor along the wall. We have added bottom for storage and this keeps the cage off the floor. Since we have two guineas we will be moving to the 2x4 size soon, to give our piggies more space. Best cage available!</p>

    Very good decision

    I purchased a large pet store model first, but decided to sell that and purchase this. I am very thankful I did! This is so much easier to clean and roomier! I did get the fleece flippers and it saves a lot of money in the long run. Very happy with the cage!

    Perfect for a hedgehog

    I bought one of these cages because they are suggested by many hedgehog care forums, and Im so happy they did. The cage was easy to order, and shipped quickly. It was easy to assemble, only took me about 45 minutes all by myself (and that includes gluing the flaps of the corroplast together). The cage itself is massive, I had to sit mine on the floor because I didn't realize how big it was.



    Now Ink has so much more room to run around and do hedgehog things, I cant wait until I can save up to add a loft so she has even more room. This cage is larger then her old one and her play pen all together. And best of all its so safe! the lid is heavy enough that I dont worry about her getting out, and the corroplast is high enough that she doesn't even try.

    The Best

    I bought one of the Standard Covered cages for my 2 female guinea pigs. Although it's a larger cage than I ever had for guinea pigs, it is so easy to handle and clean, and the pigs are happy with the space they have. This cage was well worth the cost. We have the cage set up on the floor in our living room. Our cats and dogs visit the pigs regularly, and visitors to our house always stop by to say hello to them.
