I got this cage for my two cockatiels, I removed the different levels so it is one big space. My birds are very happy in it, it’s huge and the horizontal bars on front and back make it easy for them climb around.
A really good sized cage for my group of 7 rats but it needs a number of adjustments.
The gap between the two levels is huge. My boys would definitely escape. I'm not currently using the shelf so I zip tied the ladders over the gap.
A lesser problem is the gap at the bottom where the substrate falls out. Because the base is so shallow, substrate will fall out anyway but that gap makes it worse so I've duct taped it.
It's a shame it only opens on one side. Its manageable but it would better if the other side opened.
On the plus side, it is reassuring that it is all metal. It is huge but still looks smart. The stand has wheels which is handy. All the shelves can be removed if you like.
Fixing my issues would bump this rating to 4. Add a deep base as well would take it to 5 stars. Also it was a bit of mare putting it together to be honest. Basically, if you can't afford the s*vic srs, this is a good alternative.
Quite easy to build, ready to receive chinchillas now
My 4 boys are all approaching full size so it was time to get them a new cage - this was super fast delivery even whilst on pre-order, I still received earlier than expected.
I ordered this cage after an order fell through on a cheaper cage on Amazon - a blessing in disguise as I'm so pleased with the quality of this! Easy enough to put together with the LPW Youtube video, I did it by myself in about 45-60 mins.
My rats absolutely love all the new space they have. It's easy to clean with the pull out trays :)
I ordered this cage for my chinchilla. Delivery was fast, although FedEx only delivered half the cage, but that was very quickly rectified by customer service. The actual cage is easy to construct and very good quality. Just the right size for chinchillas or rats.
