Magical,

They should, ideally, be 1/2" by 1/2" squares, but if it's a bird cage they'll probably be 1/2" strips.

[:"green"]Cockatiel cages work well as long as the bars are at most 1/2" apart. Any wider, and your gliders will become escapees running loose around the house <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />. I use cockatiel cages for all of my gliders with no problem - they have 3/8" bar spacing.

They most definately can get through 1" openings! Half inch is the largest the spacing should be.

DEFINETELY get another cage!!!!!!

I had the pleasant experience of herding multiple gliders back to their cage... multiple times this week <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shakehead.gif" alt="" />

If they can get out- there's no stoppin' em!

1 inch is way too big... Remember the general rule of thumb for most animals: If they can get their head through, their bodies will follow. It's better to be safe rather than sorry.

Good luck with the cage!

I know what you mean... Star got here at 8 weeks OOP and she was a fatty b/c her previous owner didn't have her on a complete or researched diet.
