    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 Cage Kit Includes

    • (24) 14" Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (34) 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 and Material of your choice and edging to match grid color.
    • 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

    Go Color Crazy

    Because you can with our cages! Pick a different base, ramp and deck color if you like. (large with wide loft shown)

    Optional Loft Offset

    If you are new to C&C Cages and are interested in the Wide Loft, please understand that it can be more difficult to reach all the way under the loft to the back corner to either retrieve guinea pigs and/or clean that corner of the cage. Offsetting the loft by one grid length is the solution if you have the additional space to do it.

    The Offset Loft Support Kit includes (3) grids (1 for the bottom back wall, 2 for the sides), (6) connectors, and extra cable ties.

    I have one guinea pig, a male named Ginger. Normally I would have two, but Ginger doesn't get along with other guinea pigs and the vet said to not try and introduce him to another cavy. I thought that he might like a bigger cage than the pretty small one he was in earlier, so I bought this, and I love it.

    The instructions were a bit hard to follow, but I figured out in 5-10 minutes. It took about 2 1/2 hours with washing (the fleece flippers) to set the whole cage up (and 1 to just set it up without washing the other things), so it was easy to build, even though I had a slight malfunction with how the grids fit into the holders. Over all, this is a great product, and if I even need another cage, I'll get a c&c one.

    Can I give it more stars please?

    If I could give this 10 stars for product and another 10 for service, I would. The entire experience has been overflowing with pros! <3 <3



    I want to say that in doing research before bringing home our pair of sows, I knew I needed to give them a large amount of space - at LEAST 7.5 square feet, but getting 2 (which you absolutely should do, they are herd animals and NEED company) 10.5 sq feet is highly recommended. This fit the bill perfectly. However, knowing the measurements and seeing them are 2 very different things. I planned to put this together in my office and slip it out for the 7th night of Hanukkah (the guinea pigs were a gift for my daughter) that wasn't happening. It was just a smidge too wide to be able to slid through the doorway in my old house. Needless to say, my dining room was pretty crowded until I played musical furniture to get it to it's final resting home. Well, it's final resting home until we redo the basement. ;)



    That being said, Hammie and Callie are so happy with all their space. They have room to run and pay and just be ... well, piggies. Even the veterinarian suggested a C&C cage, we already had it by then, but hey that's besides the point.



    Shipping was insanely fast. They were amazingly helpful when I called missing the cut out for the ramp. I had that piece in like 2 days time. This wasn't an issue as I had ordered with plenty of time for holiday delays in shipping which didn't exist anyhow. Customer service with them is certainly not a lost art. All around, amazing experience.



    The ONLY con to this cage that i can come up with takes looking for an issue, really. That would be cleaning underneath the loft taking contortion maneuvers. I wish I had seen the "Quick-Detach Connectors" before I ordered, because they would have been added to the initial order. I will be ordering them on the next payday, because that will make it so much easier to get under there.

    We bought this cage for our three cavies! The first time the boys went in their did several laps and pop corned all over the place! The extra wide loft is a great addition. We use it as the kitchen" with all of the treats and hay in one place. They love running up and down the ramp! "We have added a little boy to the family and will be adding another 2x4 so they have more than enough room!! Great cage, well constructed for the price!!
