Unbelievably good purchase arrived today. I have those new does in from Little Bud Mousery and they will be going in with the previous batch of does from the same place. So I felt that, as the old Barney cage had been nibbled to bits (paint stripped off and the whole nine yards), it might be as well to look for something a tad bigger for all eleven does.
What I got really staggered me when it arrived. At £43, it was a full £7 cheaper than the Barney but the quality was even better and the general design and finish of the thing absolutely first class.
Here are a couple of photos of it with the Barney in the background:
And one with the giant easy-access lid up:
The cage requires some basic snap-together assembly but is fine once you get it done. The bars are a tiny bit further apart than the Barney, but this won't be a problem for the mice I have as they aren't diddy little petshop specimens.
The name "Grosvenor" makes me chuckle. Why they didn't just go the whole hog and call it the Dorchester, I don't know!
Ask not what your rodent can do for you...
