I was contemplating on buying one of martin's BIRD cages. BB-820 Bird Cage.

# 24" x 24" x 20"
# Slide-out pan
# Floor wire

I would cover the wire floor with a hard surface to get rid of the rats having to walk on the wire and making my own shelves.



Would this be larger and cheaper then buying a Rat cage from Martin that already has the shelves but less space for more money?

I don't know what to use though to make more shelves and ramps, but Ide also make a couple more doors to get the rats out from then that one large door.

Anyone have any opinions?

What could I use to make ramps and levels and how?

Walmart and dollar stores sell 'hook on' wire shelves that you could use, or you could use tons of hammocks. :lol: :)

That cage is wayyyy too small for even one rat. It would be better if you went with one of martins rat cages made for rats.

Savveth, I think you may have your two cubic feet per rat calculations a little off... this is the second post I've seen where you've been a bit out. ;) Granted, this cage isn't massive, but with some levels it does at least cover the minimum requirements for two rats.
