So I have a cage and the bar spacing is 1cm big if i look at it I cant imagine mice heads fit through it should I risk it? If i would have mice that would fit through I do have a spare 15 gallon tank. I am not planning to use the barred cage and permanent housing  either. It would just be until I Can get My diy stuff from Ikea and other stores. What would you do?

1cm is perfectly safe for mice Smile Wouldn’t do anything above it, though.

Maybe that’s for pups? I could potentially see a young mouse fitting through 1cm, but they’d have to be very small and determined.

I don’t know every site I have sees says that is the maximum. Maybe they do just want to say in general for every age
