Hamster Cages

Pros

DIY bin cage for hamsters project from Hammy Happenings! It shows an inexpensive way to make a decent sized cage for adiy hamster cage, also there’s video of hamster’s reaction to the bew cage 🙂

Cons

It’s important that you drill as many air holes as possible into a plastic bin. Unfortunately, plastic bins heat up pretty quickly, so if you don’t want your little one to fry in the heat you’re going to want a healthy amount of holes in your bin. I drilled about 14-holes at the top and bottom of each side of our bin

If the bin is made of plastic, yes, they can escape. Hamsters can chew through plastic, and they don’t need a big hole in order to escape.
