    Finally got these breeding cages done for my buttons. [​IMG] I bought a metal shelf awhile back, we put a metal sign on the back and then we put small wire cloth of the front and put wooden "flap" doors on each pen. And Vola - 6 Breeding cages! [​IMG] I have 2 other shelfs that are awaiting to become breeding cages as well. I maynot need them until next Spring though. [​IMG]
    Let me know what you think!

    Amazing how so many people are making these before me! I had this idea over a year ago and just haven't gotten around to doing it. One suggestion is to get some shelf liner (not the rubber stuff, the kind that looks like wall paper) to put on the bottom of the cages so they aren't walking on a slick surface. Even with bedding in there it will still be slick. You might also want to put a piece of wood, coroplast, plastic, or whatever you have handy on the bottom front of each level, at least a couple inches high. Even though the wire is small they'll still make a mess with their bedding!
