1 Breeding Cages on Mon Jul 25, 2011 8:11 pm

Just wondering what the best breeding cage is? Possibly having a litter next year/end of this year but i want to be prepared this time. Last time we didn't know our doe was pregnant and it caught us totally off guard. Last time we had to make do with the freddy, but i found it encouraged her to wander off so would like something with a little lass floor space (Duna perhaps?)

Also the breeding doe will be 10 months to a year when we breed - this is becasueright now they are 8 months (perfect breeding age) but i see them as being too much like babies. I'd like them to be a little bigger to cope with it. (only one will breed).

zoozone 2 easy to clean they cant get out any bars at the top, it is ventilated and decent size, keeps drafts off to but I am no expert.
Shame you dont live by me could have given you anna's old breeding cage I used a zoozone one with her.

£15 its only so I can buy some food seems a bit cheeky to ask more when you have been so nice and your sorting the courier, I got a pink and a blue so you can decide which you color you want, will clean it up box it and it will be all yours it was £38 on ebay if your looking for new ridiculous I know not sure if thats a okay price I have no idea with these things, anyway its great and you would have seen it in the baby pictures often enough.


the pink one in use with anna




the blue got some use for a while to



they are only sitting round here so your more than welcome to either never throw anything away, I will steam clean the one of your choice to.

Ah don't worry about steam cleaning, might warp the plastic, i'll have the blue one if you don't mind, and 15 quid sounds perfect! Weyhey. Gimme chance to settle in the new crib (be around end of august probs) and i'll paypal you the money and arrange a courier to collect (courier only cost 7 quid if you know where to look). Fankoo!

I have a load of fake fur coming in the nex couple of weeks from my mum - also moving near to a fabric shop - so colours will be more certain then. Very Happy

I have to say corduroy tends to get chewed though - mine hav just devoured a hello kitty tube i made. And chubbo has just turned a hello kitty flat hammock into a seeping bag, and only pokes her head out when you call her. Mad

I'm all moved and settled in now, so as soon as i can i'll get sewing you some hammocks for your girls, any ideas of sizes/styles you'd want? I haven't nailed cubes yet. but everything else is pretty much ok.
