they are good for nothing other than litters, travel or possibly sick rats. Rats need ventilation.

well no luck but it is a 107 ql. cage with the top cut out and chicken wiring on the top for air it is mainly for litters as she said or small rodents such as hamster it is a great alternative for small animals

If you can find one of the huge ones and are handy with a knife you can cut out the sides and then there is just as must ventilation as a regular wire cage.



And Chicken wire should not be used as it is wider than recommended for smaller rats. Hardware cloth is typically preferred, vinyl coated being the best as it doesn't absorb urine. That being said, I still don't recommend bin cages as they're often too small. I think you'd be better off covering your rabbit cage with hardware cloth.
