On June 9th we are moving to our grandparents house (until ours is built) and they will have to stay in my grandparents basement. I am so glad they are letting them in the house! They do not allow any animals in the house at all, but the only other place they could stay is in the garage and my grandpa goes out at 6 am and uses power tools so that wouldn't work! I am so thankful for them... Anyways, they have to stay in a cage the whole time, their can't be to much smell or mess, and their will be a tarp underneath them. I am trying to decide what condo to use. They will only be in the condo when it is raining or too hot, otherwise they will be in their outside pen.
Condo #1 (this is an old picture before they where bonded)
This condo is smaller them my current one but it contains the mess VERY well! It is hard for hay to fall through the wire and if they pee none will get outside of the condo! BUT, it is only 2x3. I am not sure if that is big enough for 2 buns, even if it is just at night, What do you guys think. Also it would be easier to clean then the one I have now.
This condo is 2 feet longer (a 2x5) But is not as clean. If they ever have an accident on the top level pee gets all over the wall and soaks into the baseboard. It is also harder to clean because of my hurt knee I am not allowed to squat so I have to sit inside the condo to clean the bottom level, Also, since it has such big holes the hay falls out very easily.
What would you guys do? I really want to prove that I can keep it clean and not smelly, but, I don't want the buns to be in to small of a cage! They normally sleep all night any way.
