Wire Wheels?

Wire Wheels? Empty Wire Wheels?

Post by GabbiLuvsMice on Fri 30 Dec 2016, 10:23 pm

I feel like I posted about this before but what is everyones opinion of wire wheels? I have a medium sized one for my girls and I'm torn. The silent spinner is nice but the poop just piles up. Whereas the wire wheel is great and the girls have so much fun, I'm just concerned about their paws?

It depends on which one you are referring to. Wire bar wheels are dangerous and can be deadly. Mesh wheels are completely safe.

I was skeptical about mesh wheels at first too, but Rogue has had one in his cage for a while now and I've had no problems at all. It's actually probably my favorite type of wheel because Rogue uses wheels as a bathroom and with the wire one poop doesn't build up and smell gross.

Mesh wheels are perfectly safe for mice! And they love them! Some mice love to spin around in circles and girls will often play on the wheel and spin each other around.

With multiple females though, I do prefer an 8" mesh wheel, it allows for all of them to run and play together on it.

* the only of wheel that is unsafe for mice is the one with the bars that go straight across with spaces in between. Their little feets can fall through and get injured.
