I'd also like to mention-hedgies are NOT low maintainece pets. SOme *can* be but this is not always true. One of my hedgies is relatively low maintainence. That's becuase she is not fond of being held and really only truely loves her cagemate. My other two are VERY high maintainece. One thinks she is a person so I have to compare her to a toddler. She takes THAT much work. SHe is also very sick, along with my other hedgie. Both require LOTS of vet trips, lots of money and lots of special care.

I never noticed this thread before, how I have no clue, I thought I'd read everything. There is lots of mention of using plastic bins but I did not notice any mention that the bins MUST BE CLEAR.

Many hedgie owners recommend the Sterlite containers but very often fail to add CLEAR to it. I am guilty of that myself in the past until I read a few replies of I have a blue one, or a red one.... Now I try to remember to add that very important word, CLEAR.
This is just a reminder so new hedgie owners don't get the idea that any bin will work.

Hedgies need 12 hours of daylight a day. They cannot get enough light living in a solid sided bin. It would be like you living your life in a room with no windows!

Widgets home is blue BUT it is translucent so light can still get through and I also keep the tops off. Is this ok?

You probably didn't notice the thread because it's old! Phr34k hasn't posted a message in 2 1/2 months. I doubt he will see the reponses to this one.

But good info Teasels Mom...I agree about the clear bins.

Kay, IMO, if it's the light blue translucent bin, you'll be fine.
