Default Question for the breeders...

i'm not sure whether this is a "stupid" question to ask, but can anyone help me with breeding/large quantity of hedgie cages.
i've been working on getting my hedgie room set up for potential breeding. i've read my risks, done as much research as possible as well as work for a pet store that sells USDA licensed hedgie and am talking to a USDA licensed breeder as a 'Mentor" you could say.
i've also already experienced the loss of a whole litter (my very first rescued accidental litter, which led me to wanting to breed) as well as the heartache of hand-feeding newborns who ended up passing away.

now that that's cleared, and by all means feel free to ask me ay questions at all or give me tips, i need to know the best way that has worked for you breeders to house all your precious hogs. racks/tubs/homemade? pictures are very much appreciated! thank you all.

currently i own 6 Females and 2 males.(personal pets)
breeding would only be a hobby, and i'm going to apply for my USDA license as soon as i get the hedgie room setup up and make sure everything's just right.
