    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) 37" Long Ultra Rods (with end caps) 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 XL Cage Stand if you are interested in a cage stand.


    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!


    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.

    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.

    C&c 2x5

    It only took me about an hour and a half to put together and my girls LOVE it. It's so much bigger and sturdier than the 2 midwest cages I had together. I ordered it Thursday morning and got it Monday afternoon.

    Great cage! Well built! Would 100% recommend buying!

    <p>So first of all I have 2 male guinea pigs (Wilbur & Orville) and I had a standard pet-store bought cage for them as they were very small. I wanted a c&c cage but because of where I live it would be a hassel to get all the materials. When I came across this site I was so happy to find somewhere I could buy a cage with all the necessary parts. I ordered a XL covered cage (2x5 Grids) on Saturday June 3rd. I was worried it would take long because of me living in a remote part of Northern Ontario (Canada). But my package arrived Thursday June 8th! My boyfriend assembled it for me (as I was away at the time) and he said it was very simple and the instructions were easy to follow. I was also given extra pieces of coroplast which apparently protected the cage from being damaged during shipping. Once the cage was built I was very impressed with the structure of it. My guinea pigs were so happy to have so much room and have not stopped popcorning! The one reason why I haven't given this 5 stars was because I believe the opening lid of the cage could have had a better design, it functions well but it should maybe offer and small handle and a better way to connect the two panels that sit side by side.</p><p>But overall if you're thinking about purchasing cage I 100% recommend it!</p>


    The best cage I've ever had!!👍🏻

    <p>If you are a guinea pig rookie i seriously recommend getting this cage. It is steardy, roomy, very high quality, and a wonderful upgrade from a store bought cage. If you are cautious about the cage you should get, this one is a good size for 3 females, and the cover, and cage is steardy...if you do get this cage I recommend getting the stand for it. It's worth it in the long run.</p>


    Perfect for two piggies

    <p>This cage is seriously the best. I've never seen my piggies happier. They have so much room to popcorn and run. Pretty easy to assemble too. Highly recommend</p>

    so much room to play!

    I just put this cage together last night and i love it i cant stop watching my two little guys run around they were up all night enjoying all the new space! It took me about 3 hours to put it together ..i am HORRIBLE at putting things together and i managed to do this with no help so i was very pleased! I will never return to the old pet store cage again!!

    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!

    Perfect Home with Easy Access!

    This is a beautiful looking home. I LOVE the colour selection! The coroplast and grids are super sturdy and high quality. I wasn't sure how easy it would be to use the lid system but needed a covered cage due to having cats. It couldn't be EASIER! In fact, I put together multiple cages to make huge ones and the lid system is so easy and efficient. I can even get in and out easily to catch piggies for cuddling and to clean! :D
