Obviously I don't want to paint the piggies! but I do want to re-treat their hutch to protect it. It's multicoloured and the kids love it so I'd like to keep it like that. Don't want to poison my piggies but can't seem to find much info on what paint is safe / not safe to use.
I had a look on the bunny websites WRT painting hutches. They recommend Cuprinol Garden Shades (available in different colours)
Pets at Home do an animal safe paint for hutches (I don't know if it's waterproof) and no idea what colours it would be.
Our Pighouse was my DC playhouse in it's previous existance so it had already been painted with external wood paint. DH treated the inside before the pigs moved in but he can't remember what with
Luckily my piggles don't chew their surroundings (GP2 eats cardboard)
What colour are your guinea-pigs? They might fancy a change of colour? Our hogs are jet black and golden agouti so not much scope for a quick colour change. Unless I paint a white stripe on the black pig's back and he can pretend to be a skunk
