My piggies burrow all day long! Could they be bored or unhappy?

I have had my piggies since August and I have learned that they love to burrow under fleece! I have had to add small fleece blankets to the cage so they don’t burrow under their fleece I use for bedding. They love burrowing so much that if I put a small fleece blanket in the cage they will stay under it for the majority of the day. Of course they come out for food time and floor time but they love to be burrowed under their blankets.

Is this normal behavior or could they be bored?
They love their floor time and run around like crazy but are very laid back when they are in their cage.

I am just hoping they aren’t bored or unhappy.

Add tape under the fleece so they would not go under, like a light duct tape so you can take it off every week or few days, you clean the cage. Also, get them some Hidey Cozies or Tunnels:)

If your fleece is long enough andwide enough you could use Bulldog clips to clip it to sides of cage to stop burrowing. I agree with the above post give them plenty of hideys and tunnels. Also give them some ooden toys to gnaw or even tie strings over cage and dangle some vegetables which will stop bordom :)
