What size bins do you use? I've been scouring the cage threads for at least an hour, but no one mentions what quart size their bins are. I'm a math idiot. I need to be hand-fed information. Lol!

TIA!

I was hoping to go with one so I will keep searching. We're military, so as much as I want to do something elaborate or some sort of C&C Cage, it's just not easily moved. Considering the gliders and bird already have massive setups I'd like to keep the one for the hedgie fairly portable. One bin would be awesome because I could cut holes in the lid and on top of the bin and move the hedgie in his cage just like that when needed.

Thanks!

You JUST missed the earlier postings/probable sales on Christmas tree storage boxes

Though I wonder if you could still ask the employees at those stores and see if they still have some in the back somewhere.
That's ok. ^_^ Wal-Mart has the 90-quarts for CHEAP. Full price is fine with me, it's not like they're expensive or anything! Ha ha ha! You never know, maybe I'll get lucky. ;)

I had used a jumbo clear one that had wheels (took those off). Sorry I don't remember the actual size. I do remember reading somewhere that you should aim for a minimum 4 sq feet of room for your hedgie to move around.
Yes I read that too. Having a hard time finding a list of their sizes and dimensions. LOL.

I'm confused since so many people use bins and yet no one knows [or will admit] how big they are and everyone is saying they're too small. :?:

I think it's also because you are wanting one single bin. Most here use at least 2 connected/stacked bins.

Also, it may be a good idea to take measurements of igloo, wheel, food/water dishes, so you see how much room they would take away from the overall floorspace. Then when looking at the bins, it'd be easier to determine what's too small.
I saw several people using a single bin per hedgehog. I have no issue with doing something else if I have to, I was just pointing out that there are a lot of people who use single bins and yet no one can tell me what size they are and now people are saying they're too small.
