    Popsicle Sticks

    I read on a website you could use popsicle sticks to create a ramp. Wouldn’t you have to do something so it would be strong enough? I just don’t think it would work. One of my friends used them as chews and I told her off.

    Re: Popsicle Sticks

    I just built a second story to my 2×4 cage and needed a ramp. I used 2 bent cube panels and then covered them in coroplast. Because the coroplast is a smooth surface that they would not be able to climb on, I lined the coroplast ramp with popsicle sticks spaced about 3/4 of an inch from each other. Now they can climb up the ramp easily.

    Won’t the ramp get moldy if peed on? I use towels or bath mat that can be washed.

    Re: Popsicle Sticks

    I think my friend was using a really bad kind of popsicle sticks and it made me mad. She could have gone to the store and picked up some colorful chews. I took my second story out due to the fact I have a expecting piggy. Hopefully, she wont give brith until I get my new c&c cage!

    Re: Popsicle Sticks

    lissie – I guess only time will tell. It appears very cleanable and I don’t think they are spending enough time on the ramp to pee and I haven’t seen any moisture yet. They just take a couple of hops on it and they are upstairs. Do they pee much on the towels you use on the ramp? I am doing a full clean this afternoon so I will be able to evaluate it better then.

    They love the new space underneath the ramp as it creates a new tunnel for them and I have to admit that it has been fun having a creative outlet.

    Colorful chews can be bad. They have artificial dyes that are not good for them. And if her pigs are like mine they don’t even bother with them.

    Mine don’t like them either. They would much rather chew on the grids.

    Re: Popsicle Sticks

    While popsicle sticks are very convenient for traction, I would like to caution anyone to make sure their piggies do not chew them. They splinter lengthways into very sharp points. I sometimes chew on them myself and have gotten very nasty cuts from the splinters. At least I can make the stupid choice for myself , a guinea pig can’t.
    A guinea pig should be satisfying its need to chew on unlimited hay, not pieces of wood.

    I wouldn’t say it’s a lot, but enough for me to want to wash it weekly with the rest of the fleece.

    I don’t put anything made of wood in my cages. It’s porous and will absorb urine and quickly be a breeding ground for bacteria. I have had cardboard tunnels in there but I toss them after a couple of days.
