Hi... New to the site and had a question. I have a colony of gliders that need a new sleeping spot. I was thinking I could use a milk jug cut on a diagonal edges smoothed and hung by handle on the side of the cage.I would then add fleece squares for comfort and ease of cleaning. So my question is has anyone done this before and would the milk jug be safe to use?

I have made these.

The plastic is made from food grade material, and is flexible. Just be careful and feel edges when cutting.

I will try to take a pic of my latest creation.

Here the pics I took:

I used a hole punch so I could loop fleece and lace a roof on. Mine don't sleep in this, I use it as a foraging place for now. The inside is full of fleece blankets.

It's easy to wash, I just swish it in clean dish soap water, and hang upside down in shower or outside.

Is this what you had in mind?

BTW, :welcome2: to Glider Central!
