Guinea Pig housing


The minimum sized enclosure we home guinea pigs to is 3.5 square metres for them to have access to 24/7

If their accommodation is outdoors then the mesh needs to be at least 16 gauge to be predator proof, the lower the number the thicker the wire. Chicken wire is not safe!

The flooring of the run section should be slabbed to prevent predators being able to dig underneath. 

Locks on outdoor enclosures need to be bolts, not just swivel latches

Lots of people build their own cages with C&C grids and coroplast (see videos)

There are various places online that sell these types of grids
