I found out... her diet was RABBIT pellets, "some" hay... once I got her she had ALL her veggies, guinea pellets, water always topped up never ever empty... On a good note my friend is doing the same and maybe in the next hour will we hear from her about how the appointment with the vet went!! =D
Anyhow, this time I asked the owner of the skinny what his diet is, and I'm making sure to get hay for him since the "he nibbles" and "pellets and veggies" I kind of clued in he needs stuff to chew up
I get him today!! My friend offered to get him since she is in edmonton right now.
First picture is the fabric I pulled out. Unfortunately my ipod is terrible for pictures, destroyed this picture carity. There is: 1. supposed to be green, is a light fabric.
Second is bamboo - very very soft!
Next one is black polar fleece.... the bamboo is still softer
The pink one is a fluffy one.. very soft, but only on one side (much like faux fur).
Purple silk is the fifth one.
The last one is a thick plaid.
1. I found boxes that were short - which will be very good for my idea of having ramps leading to little "levels", which aids in exploration. I try to make sure the boxed were never used for raw foods such as seafood and meat.
2. You'll want to fold the box so the fabric can fit around it.
3. It's like wrapping a present - you can choose what method you want to use. Try to stay away from stuff like wood glue. I do show staples, but it is not for this part. I used hot glue, which I will note The guineas cannot get to unless they determine to chew continuously. Which in this time you will want to replace it anyways. You can also try sewing it, but I'm not that good
4. Make as many as you want. I used the softer fabrics... such as the pink "faux fur" and then for the male, the bamboo.
5. If using hot glue, you'll want to keep a good inch or two above the fabric to avoid burning it, or melting it (depending what you use). Never press hard on the outside piece to "make it stick". You want to rub it along the glue line, to make sure it sticks without going through to the other side. This'll keep a clean and soft look on the outside rather than a hard globby mess.
Next post will be on making homemade carefresh bedding :)
