so i was on the forum and i see that a lot of people agree that mesh wheels are safe for mice, just wanted to know if the opinion still applies or if it has changed? Confused

I personally steer away from both mesh and barred wheels. While mice can't get sores on their feet like hamsters, they can still easily get a toe/leg caught in the gaps. Solid wheels get rid of these issues and have some nice silent options if that's something you'd want. Smile

All wheels have their pros and cons. In my opinion, mesh wheels are safe and as long as I can find them I’ll use them. They offer grip support for multiple users and are easier to clean. They’re also loads of fun!! I’ve offered two-three wheels to a group of five-seven, and most of them all chose to pile onto the same wheel. Multiple mice piling onto a solid wheel doesn’t work out too well! Laughing

I have a mesh wheel in with my colony and my male gets a few different types. He enjoys his saucer and loves to spin himself on the mesh. Won’t touch a comfort or silent spinner.
