Guinea pig run

Hi, we got 3 little guinea pigs at the weekend, that are adorable and living in a hutch outside. All well so far, however when I bought and erected a wire run for them to have a scamper about in they duly escaped. They poked their little heads out and scampered. Luckily my dd and I were doing it together and spotted the escapee. This is a wire cage, big enough for three grown guineas, so lots of room, but obviously the space between the bars is still too wide for them. At what age should I put them in a run, or is this the wrong type of run? Any advice welcomed. Thank you.

Hello. Well, it sounds like you'll have to wait until they are much bigger to ensure the wee ones don't escape.

Hope all 3 are female (although sometimes you can keep 3 males together.)

You can find lots of information on housing of piggies here. Best of luck! Guinea Pig Forum
