Cage Question

I am building one of those cages made from the cubes tommorrow for my fosters coming on Saturday.I had a larger guinea cage when I had Apolla,but ended up giving it away once she went.


Now I decided to make my cage.
Just curious,how high do the sides need to be?
Pictures are appreciated!

if you are using the cubes then you only have to have one cube high, with my guinea pig he never tried to get over the 6 inch coroplast bottom i had. but i had cubes anyway

Okay...thanks!
My sister has the cubes for her bunnies,but because they are hoppers,they have to be 2 cubes high.

Congrats on your new foster piggie! ^^
My piggies LOVE their cage, and they never want to leave, and if you take them out, they always try to sneak back in
SO i wouldnt worry about your neww pig getting out

In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

We went to target and got two packages of those snap together shelves. We made ours two squares high but they can't get over one. They can't climb like rats but they can jump hurdles. Though not just real high. Very much ground dwellers these.
