Post New Chin Cage

I just wanted to show you all this, hubby is building new cages (3rd generation cage) and well he built the first one tonight, and wanted me to show you all. I am very impressed with it, and cost us about $6/$7 max to make it. It is 21"x14"x28" so a good sized cage we think Have A Good One

Great cage!! I want to make my own cages, but the wire mesh I want costs about $1 a foot and only comes in 100 foot or more rolls AND I have (make that had ) no idea what to use for a bottom. What size and gage mesh did you use?

Becki, the mesh (chicken wire) is 1/2" 19 gauge it was like $18 for a 2'x50' roll here at menards the areas local (home-depot) they came in smaller rolls but we knew we would use the bigger one.... The bottom is a storage container bought at wal-mart for $2.84 (normal $3 something I believe) of course we left the lids behind, no use for them, hahaha!! Sassy hubby thanks you, and says it is amazing what ideas you can gather from other sites
