Hey guys. So, I may be going on a trip for a week or so to some relatives house, and I'll have to take my rats with me. Obviously I can't take my CN with me, so I was wondering what's an affordable cage that can fit 6 rats?
Of course it doesn't have to comfortably fit 6 rats because it'll only be a temporary stay...
I'm trying not to break the bank because I have some financial issues right now. :p
I also found this cage and put the dimensions of the XL cage into the rat cage calculator and it said it could fit 7 rats so I maaaay end up getting that one... It's a bit expensive but I might be able to have someone else help me pay for it~
Thanks!

The one you are looking at has 1" bars, so if you have any small girls they may squeeze through it. Are you wanting one with a tub type bottom?

If you need the bar spacing closer there isn't a lot that I see with tubs that will be easy to fold down. You might be able to use like the kaytee first one- http://www.amazon.com/Kaytee-Habita...=UTF8&qid=1418499938&sr=1-4&keywords=rat+cage It would be a tight squeeze, but for a short stay I don't think it would be a big deal.

I like martins delux barn if you don't care about a tub-http://www.martinscages.com/products/cages/travel/ Not sure if it folds down however.

I have the hey fey has. Mine doesn't have the grate in the bottom however and they can push the plastic tray out and leave. ;)

I also have a collapsable one from Quality cage, but it's 1" x 1" bars and only suitable for my boys. It's my favorite, I wish they made one like that for the rats. It's 24" inchs all sides, so fairly roomy and folds down to a 1" and sits in the plastic base. They probably would make it for me with smaller wire spacing, but it would be rather spendy.

I also use the http://www.amazon.com/Super-Pet-Hab...=UTF8&qid=1418500690&sr=1-3&keywords=rat+cage Which would be really tight for 6. It's nice for short trips though cause it's really skinny and can fit on a car seat without issue. It also has a very deep tub so it keeps most of the mess inside.
