    Does anybody want to show off their cages and brooders? If so just post a picture.

    Nice cage. My wire is not level right now. I need to fix it bad. A coyote knocked off the board going down the middle so I know what I'll be doing today.[​IMG]

    This is what mine are in right now. It measures approximately 3' wide by 8' long by 2 1/2' high (inside height):

    Before the rat problem they were in 2x2x2 and 2x4x2 cages, and some were in a cage I made that measured 36"x30"x12".

    Quote:Yeah, that's supposed to be my guinea egg collector, but with this cage being so deep (and me not thinking to put a door on the wire side) I needed something to 'grab' the eggs out of the far back corner [​IMG]

    The zip-ties are there because I had to cut a 'door' in the wire so I could use the guinea egg collector to get the eggs...I guess I figured they'd be nice and lay all their eggs in the 'house' section of their pen [​IMG]

    ETA: the zip ties were used to 'close' the door that was cut into the wire, until the rats figured out that the zip ties were 'easy' to break [​IMG] The door is better reinforced now, no more zip ties [​IMG]

    ETA again: Just in case anyone was wondering, the guinea egg collector is a spaghetti 'spoon' duct-taped to the end of a 6' cane pole...how hillbilly is that? [​IMG]
