Bin Cage Tutorial
Selecting a cage can be confusing and overwhelming. There are many different options out there to consider, and what works for one person may not work for another. While there are several excellent cages available on the market, I personally like bin cages; they are very customizable, lightweight, and fairly inexpensive to build. Bin cages aren't commercially available, and the process can be a bit intimidating. So I've made a tutorial showing how I make my cages, and hopefully it will be helpful for those wanting to make their own!
Now let's get started!
Materials cost breakdown (Not including tools, bedding, or accessories):
$10 Storage bin with locking lid
$9 5' x 2' roll of 1/2" hardware cloth
$10 Stainless Steel Zip Ties, 100 pack
= $29 total cost of materials.
I still have enough hardware cloth left on the roll to make at least 2 more bins, and 20 zip ties left over.
I hope you have found this tutorial informative and easy to follow. If you have any questions or need clarification on any of the steps, please don't hesitate to contact me.
