Any 200 inch bin cages?

Post by PastelMouse on Sat 13 May 2017, 10:17 pm

I've been looking into using bin cages for mice. They seem like a good option for me, and I love the customization of them. However, I find all the bins I've looked at are too big. I'm looking for one 200-250 square inches to house a single male. I also want one with flat sides so a mouse couldn't chew out, and, if possible, a latch top. I don't know if a bin like this exists, but does anyone have suggestions? Thank you for reading!

I don't have a specific bin in mind but wanted to mention that most bins have slightly sloped sides, so the actual available floor space inside is less than the dimensions given on the label. If you can, take a tape measure and check them out in store. Smile

Oh yea, I'll be sure to check. That or just finding a bin that's over 250, because it's actual size should be around 200. Might just get a 10g to be easier, but for some reason I love the look of bin cages. XD

I used this bin for my original bin cage before I upgraded to a 110 quart for them. I really like this one and was able to mesh the top and sides quite easily.

Thanks! Do you know what the bottom dimensions are?

I think it was about 300 square inches. Bigger than a 10 gallon but not too big for the two females I had in it.
