    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.

    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.

    Cage Kit Includes

    • (12) 14" Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (24) Connectors in black or white
    • 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 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™ Large System 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 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.

    The larger cage made immediate difference.

    <p>I have two guinea pigs from the local shelter. They have been in a Jumbo Prevue Tubby cage, approx. 7 square. feet, for almost a year. One pig, Lucy, runs in this cage and popcorns occasionally. I have never observed the other pig, Ethel, doing either. And, she has gained weight. And, there is a fair amount of squabbling. </p><p>I decided to upgrade to the C&C 2x4, approx 10.5 square. feet. Put it together, a snap, put the pigs in with their fleece and kitchen, and there they go...both popcorning. And at 6 AM, there went Ethel on her laps. Super fast run through two tunnels and around the cage, 5 times. Then Lucy took her laps. Haven't heard any warning grumbles. The extra space makes a big difference in their ability to be mobile.</p>

    <p>This cage is truly amazing and an upgrade from the Midwest Habitat that my 2 girls were leaving in. I just got them a month ago and new that wouldn't be their forever home and this cage definitely is it's seriously huge and great for my piggies. It came in less then a week with instructions , coupons , & even a Guinea pig care sheet. Assembly was much easier than I thought it'd be too. All in all 5 out of 5 and I will definitely be purchasing more things from this site!! Thanks 💝</p>

    Easy to assemble... even my 3 year old daughter could help!

    The coroplast base was well worth the money. Not only does this website offer larger coro sizes than my local (and by "local," I really mean two towns over for me) hardware store, but it was CHEAPER than my local store too!

    Our family ordered the orange base and it took about two minutes to put together. My three-year-old daughter was able to put in the rivets all by herself!

    Very happy with my purchase. Our family is planning on upgrading our piggy cage with a loft in the very near future.

    ;) Our piggies were happy with this purchase too!

    Great Service!

    <p>I had to return this product before it was delivered to me, so I do not know how this product is. But during the returning process I emailed them. But Sue answered back with no complaints about how I emailed nonstop. She was very nice. I would definitely be ordering from here again!</p>
