I don't about about everyones experience with bin cages, i made a kick *** one for my hamster muffin once, and within a week of being in it he died. I figured it was old age, so i mourned and moved on. i cleaned the bin out and put my hamster girl, batty, in it. well, SHE died within a week of being in it too. of course there was air circulation, i'm a bio geek. my concern was the plastic stink killing them? ventilation or not, that stink never leaves. i freaked out and threw the bin cage out, i wasn't sacrificing any more critters to it. building a cage is fun, and you totally DO NOT have to be handy, just swing the hammer, let that pent up stuff out! it's fun!
