Minimum suggested size for one or two gliders is 3foot tall x 2 foot wide x 2 foot deep. However, the bigger the better! If given an option, taller is always better. My pair are in a cage that is 3 foot wide, 20 inches deep and 4 1/2 foot tall and seems to work great.

Cages can be made out of PVC coated (plastic) wire, Powder coated wire, Plastic mesh, stainless steel(very expensive!). The one thing it should NOT be made out of is galvanized metal. Cedar should never be used. Pine can be used but only if it has been sealed with shallac (4-5 coats). Never use pine or cedar wood shavings as bedding as they both release toxic oils when wet that can cause respitory problems.

Plexi glass isn't a good idea as they need ventilation and need to be able to climb on the walls. If you go to the Gallery link at the bottom of the page, there are pictures of cages there. Some are quite elaborate, some more simple. Attached is a pic of two of my cages.

Heres a pic of the newest one I just made in Jan for two of mine. It is 6 1/2 X 3' X 2'

I purchased the wire from Klubertanz for $130.00. With hubbys help it was completed in a couple days. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
