How to keep your cages looking fresh and clean every day! Follow these 6 tips to encourage your guinea pigs to use litter trays and make it easier to clean up after them!
1. Use litter trays and position them in areas of the cage where piggies are more inclined to go anyway - think darker shaded corners or underneath hidey huts.
2. Put HAY in the litter trays! Guinea pigs pee and poop whilst they munch on hay, so by adding hay to the litter trays they are far more likely to use them. Don't worry about them eating soiled hay - you should provide them with fresh hay at least twice a day and fully clean the litter trays every day.
3. Get large litter trays. Forget about those corner ones - they just don't work and are not big enough to provide your piggies with a decent space to eat hay. Start off with cat litter trays and maybe even create your own larger trays in the future. I have a tutorial video for making a great size litter tray from an under bed storage box:
4. Make sure the lining for the rest of the cage is different to the material in the litter trays

UPDATE July 2015: WOW over 100k views! Glad you enjoyed this! All the animals are healthy and doing well. Mycroft is older now, and no longer wants to play with the dogs.
Vexx, Shiba Inu, playing with Mycroft, Camelot macaw. Okami, Alaskan Klee Kai, makes sure Vexx isn't being too rough, she is very protective of the macaw.
NOTE: This situation only happened a couple of rare times. Mycroft is a baby in this video, and doesn't understand the dangers. He just wants to play. I do NOT recommend letting your pets in the same situation.
Thanks for watching! This was a highly requested video so I thought it was time to make an updated guinea pig routine as so much has changed since my last one. As you probably noticed from the video, the guinea pigs have a new cage! This is because they just weren't using the space in the large cage and it seemed a waste; the reason we made the previous cage so large was because we just put all the sows together for the first time and we wanted to reduce the risk of them fighting by giving them more room however they all started to get along very well after introducing Bramley and I thought that it would be more practical to make the cage a little bit smaller - it is still large enough for 8 guinea pigs as it is 7x5 grids so they have plenty of space.
