I just got a wire cage (like a C&C cage) and I'm just wondering about the heating. Do they stay fairly warm with a heat lamp? It seems to me like a lot of heat would escape because its so open.

How you heat the cage has some to do with it, but a huge factor in escaping heat is the outside temp, in this case the room the cage is in.
If you heat a cage in an un heated room, the heat system has to work harder because air is constantly mixing.
With any cage you should be loosing heat because of ventilation, unless the whole room is heated to an appropriate temp.
