nic cages are pretty simple to build, all you have to then do is make sure to secure your pieces and make them sturdy, and the coroplast bottom allows you to have and size and depth of a pan you want, its an awesome deal for lots of room with not so much pinch on the wallet

honestly IMO those cube cages can be expensive if you want a BIG cage.

Martins sells decent size cages for like $60 and I'm sure you can find a few at petsmart. Just shop around and see what works for you.

Ahhh cage ideas. Here I am lol. The big cage is 4' x 3.5' x 2'......i made it out of wood I found lying around here, but to go to a place like Home Depot would be just as easy, the supplies are cheap-O. The smaller wire-shelfy cage is about 3' x 2' x 2'. I found the rack at the end of someones driveway for pickup (it was with other broken things) but still it seems to not be broken.

this is the link to the big cage pics

this is the thread of the rat cage i made for mookie, the only thing missing is the caging which is 10$ for me to get a huge roll. (huge huge roll)
