    XL Cage Dimensions

    • Lower level = 27" x 71" = about 13 Square Feet of cage space
    • Upper level = about 2 Square Feet of additional space
    • Total = about 15 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.

    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 Cage Kit Includes

    • (22) 14" Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (36) Connectors in black or white
    • 4mm Coroplast bottom in your choice of 15 colors!
      The base and loft are 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.)
    • 27" Ramp in Coroplast color of your choice and edging to match grid color with gray 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 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.


    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

    My piggies & I LOVE this cage!

    Product:
    Service:
    I received this cage today in the exact beautiful colors I ordered. (I did a different color for every separate piece of coroplast.) Assembly took me about 2 hours by myself & although the directions seemed a little unorganized they were straightforward & simple. This cage fit in the space I intended it for PERFECTLY & is solid & sturdy. I used nearly all the zip ties it came with to reinforce it, too. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase! I added the Bistro to my order as well & it works like a charm in this cage. My piggies immediately began popcorning upon entering their new home. I highly recommend this product! It is worth every penny! Awesome quality product and service! Fast shipping!

    Our Guineas LOVE their new cage

    Product:
    Service:
    <p>This cage is amazing. We purchased our guineas from pet smart and bought a cage there. we were told it would be big enough for 3 guineas. I'm a first time guinea pig owner, so I had no idea. 2 months later even I could see they were miserable. Didn't know what to do, then I found this website. The guineas have been in the cage for 2 days and are so much happier. They roam around and exercise. They have been interacting with us and making their adorable little noises. The case is sturdy and was easy to put together. It took about 2 hours (we have the loft and the cubbies underneath) but it wasn't difficult. I put it together on my own w/ no help from my hubby. Everything is well made and just perfect. Thank you for making these cages!!</p>

    <p>I received my 2x5 cage today with Narrow Loft and my 3 piggies Bella, Nibbles and Snickers absolutely love it. I had no problem at all putting it together and the instructions were very clear. I also purchased the stand with this cage which I highly recommend. its very well constructed and sturdy. Very well worth the money I paid for it. The customer service and shipping times were awesome. My piggies haven't stopped running and popcorning since I put them in the cage. Thank you GPS for a great product.</p>

    <p>We upgraded to a larger home for our two piggies. They both took to it well. I was surprised t how fast they started to use the loft area. Now they have a ton of room to play. The product itself is awesome and the shipping was amazing. We received it in two days. I would recommend The Guinea Pig Cages Store to anyone who loves their pigs.</p>
