Stud Closure

We made the sad decision a few weeks ago to close the stud. We've been slowly reducing our numbers over the last few months, but it just hasn't been enough. I just don't have the heart for breeding anymore. We are going to keep 3 pet sows for the kids, but all of the pedigree animals have been found new homes with trusted studs to continue the work with our lines.

We have a few last pet pigs looking for homes still. A pair of pet rex sows (Cupcake - shown above, and Chilli will go together nicely), as well as our LAST baby pedigree texel, and a baby satin curly-coated boar. All the information on our adoptables can be found on the available page.

We will need to sell our tower cages as well. The above cage shows our newest long 3-bay cage. This one measures 200cm x 60cm x 110cm tall. Each of the 3 levels is 200cm x 60cm allowing for LOTS of room. There are centre dividers that are hinged and have a bolt to allow you to secure them out of the way when opening the section up (no need to remove/no risk they'll get lost). They also have front pannels that are removable for easy cleaning - with each pannel the same size so they can all be mixed around. We're asking $400 for this cage, and pick up is from Wynnum West, Qld.

The older cage is our taller 4-bay tower cage. Each section here measures 120cm x 60cm, and it too has the centre dividers to turn it into 8 single cages if required and the front lift-out panels. We're asking $300 for this cage. They cost well over $1000 new, and have been professionally custom made by a fellow Brisbane Cavy stud.

There is also this little patio-hutch style cage below with the lift-up lid. It measures 120cm long by 45cm wide by 50cm tall. It's one of our very first cages, so is a few years old. But hasn't been used in a while. We're asking $40 for this one.

Email me at if you're interested in any of our cages.
