    I need some cages and was wondering were a good place is to buy them. I am not handy so i can't make them. my tractor supply doesn't even carry them. the cheaper the better of course.
    or if anyone has any used ones for sale please let me know.
    thanks so much

    try posting an ad on craig's list for any type of wire cage and ask for pics....then you can decide for yourself if you think you can alter it to fit. you can usually find several for nearly nothing compared to new. So if you destroy a couple in the learning process, you should still come out ahead.

    Try any swap meets around you. I sold some of my first breeder pens at a swap, and I see cages all the time at the swaps we go to. Rabbit cages work just fine. Minimum of 1/2 X 1" wire on the bottoms, and 1 X 2" tops and sides if you have Coturnix.
