so the cage that is coming with the rehomes is about four square feet maybe. i think that is too small. so i was looking at this onehttp://www.amazon.com/Midwest-171GH...1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1255460038&sr=8-1 . it is eight square feet and i can out a top on it with no issue and it is relatively inexpensive and the best part is i do not need to figure out how to make a c&c. heehee. so what are ya all's thoughts on this cage. any feed back will be appreciated

it might need higher sides on it. hard to tell from the photo... most people put coroplast at least 6 in up the sides of their C&C cages. and like you said, it'll need a top. otherwise, nice find. decently priced too...

Looks good! Just keep in mind how you will heat it, and you are right about it needing a top. It's a good size for the price.

would ya prefer it taller? i was going to heat it with a ceramic heat emmiter or two. and the top is either going to be a solid one with wire or a complete wire top. either one is easy to make. the c&c is scary to make,

Looks like a good cage with the top option, fantastic floor space! :)

I don't see much problem with the inner liner height if it's 3", I have a 2 floor C&C cage set for my girls and the top floor tray is only 3" high. Haven't had any problem with that as my hedgies aren't climbers much. If they were, I doubt that a 6" inner tray height would do much to stop them anyways!

Don't be too scared of C&C cage assembly, it is a bit of a pain but not complicated and worth it imho ;)
