PROPER CAGE SIZES!

Three guinea pig's need a PREFERRED size of 13 sq. ft. = 2x5 C&C Cage.

CAGE CLEANING TIPS
"Your nose will tell you. Generally one week is the maximum between complete bedding changes. How often you need to clean will also depend on:

Your choice of bedding material
The age of your guinea pigs (young pigs mean less waste)
The size of your cage (bigger is better) and
How many guinea pigs you have. "
