Awesome cages! I recently joined the FN cage situation myself, and it's been a pretty big list of pros and cons.

Here are some of my cage setups - some recent changes include switching to stainless steel bowls that adhere to the bars, removing the girls' wheel to a shared playtime cage (all my chins go in one at a time once or twice a week when they seem restless), and adding some ledges and huts. I tried not to clutter up the space too much, I don't want them feeling like they gained a new cage but lost space to run or jump.

New FN182 owner question

Hi everyone, I'm a new FN182 owner, and I have a question. The bottom of my cage doesn't seem to be sturdy. It's fine as long as it stays in one place, but it I want to move it to vacuum, then it is really flimsy. So much that I will not move it unless my chin's are out of the cage for exercise time. Does anyone else have this problem? How do I fix it? I have already taken the cage completely apart and put it back together thinking something was off, but it's exactly the same. I have included a couple pictures. Please excuse the mess. I had just finished cleaning cages, and I hadn't vacuumed yet. See how the bottom part leading to the wheels bends out at about a 30 degree angle? Well maybe not 30 degrees, but you see what I mean.

I am not a fan of the "no tool" ferret nations. The newer ones do have a better base than earlier no tool models but they still move compared to the 142 models. Conact Midwest and explain the problem.

Ferret.com had a sale, we upgraded to three tiers

Well ferret.comhad a 25% off sale on FN add on units.
So we got the third tier.
(FYI There is still a 15% going on right now.)

Gerby's house now qualifies as "apartment status" in NYC.
I'm going to have to start charging him rent.
:)

Hi! I may post this somewhere else too so it doesn't get lost in this thread, which is incredible by the way! But I was curious, I recently bought my FN 181 unit and was looking for a second unit; does it have to be the 182? Or can a 183 unit go right on top of a 181 as well? Thank you for any help:)

Also! I saw someone post that ferret.Com is still 15% off, and just so people know 1800petsupplies is 30% off! A 183 add on is 69.99 which I believe is even cheaper than the ferret.Com sale, so if you need to save money!!:)

The 183 is made to go on top of the 181 (to make a double) or the 182 (to make a triple high cage). It's basically just the cage part like the top unit of the 182, or to look at it another way, like the 181 without the stand and a cutout bottom instead of solid.

Oh ok thank you! I just didn't know if maybe they connected differently and didn't want to buy the wrong piece!

Wow, 3 levels all to himself! What a lucky chinny!
I love all the blue fleece items. I try to have mostly blue/green things!
