Actually, galvanized wire is basically stainless steel with a coating of zinc to avoid any degrading in the steel. So saying that there should be no zinc, but galvanized is okay, is backwards. I have...

I like the fleece liners because they're easier to manage. Make 3 or so, then swap them out and wash them when needed. I also shake them out everyday (poos, old hay, and all) to prolong the amount of...

umm... I use Mazuri. I like it so far :) I got a 25 lbs bag online. Then I put it into containers and freeze the one's I'm not using. Freezing them makes the nutrients last longer.

Is elmers strong enough to hold together hiding houses? I would just as soon nail the thing together far from the edges and just take them out/replace them if their nibbling gets too close.
