I was wondering if these cage sizes would be appropriate. I know the width and heights are all moderately okay but I'm having a hard time finding a cage with a larger depth. But I was wondering if it would be alright because the cages make up for the loss of depth in width. I also included images of all of the cages in case there was anything else wrong with them.

ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE THE CAGE BY ITSELF WITHOUT THE STAND

(Cage 1) 32"(W) X 19"(D) X69"(H)


(Cage 2) 31"(W) x 20.5"(D) x 53"(H)


(Cage 3) I'm on the fence about the height of this cage but it is the cheapest option. 25"(W) X 17"(D) X 30.7"(H)



The wooden rods in all of them are removable.

You don't want to take the cheapest route as cheap also means cheaply made.

The first cage is a good cage and I have one of them. The second two are cheap cages.

I have this cages: HQ Fight cage aka Brisbane cage

I didn't mean to come off as buying cheap cages. I just meant the last one was the cheapest of the 3. I was definitely leaning towards the first cage. Thank you!

Here is a cage with more depth. Honestly it's the largest cage I have. It's 36"t x 22" deep x 32w.

http://www.sugar-gliders.com/glider-cages/12-sturdy-sugar-glider-cage.html

It has a nice hammered powder coat finish. Mine has 2 large doors and 2 nest box doors I keep zip tied on each side. It's sturdy with no sliding doors that can wear the finish off. It also has an actual hinge on the doors instead of wire on wire to prevent the paint from chipping. I've had this cage 3 years, 9 months. The only issue I'm having is a little rust on the hinge pin which the gliders can't reach.

Exotic Nutrition carries one same size:

I hope this was helpful.

These cages are meant to last. I take this cage outside for a good power wash twice a year. More often when needed.


Almost forgot!

What do you use your nest box doors for? I also have mine tied shut but it be would be nice to fool my little nuggets once in a while and not play the game where I see if I can get food into the cage and close the door in time before a surprise session of catch me if you can happens.


Great googley moogley

The cages we're built intitally as a flight cage for birds. I have considered building a tunnel out of plastic mesh to go up and over cage and link the doors together.
