SRS/Explorer/Ferret & Critter Nation/Aventura style cages

I thought I'd kick this one off and get a thread going for all you lucky people who own one of these cages. Here's a few of my much beloved SRS.

Had my srs about a week now but the girls only moved into the top today & the boys won't be moving into the bottom for another few days.

I'm gutted that I no longer have my babies, due to a massive change in circumstances.

They will always be my babies. I'm heart broken. I'll never forget them.

Yay for a new thread :D My set up is for a mix of ages (10months - 2.5 years) and I'm attempting to keep most at a healthy weight whilst some could do with losing a bit.

I tried for a while to take pictures of my setup every week so I could keep track of what worked and what didn't.

That didn't last long :lol:

Here's some, anyway...

It tends to be a bit less bare these days now I have more ropes and interesting things to climb. Course I never took any pics of the setups that have worked the best :roll:

I got my new tray so have done a completely new set up. I've tried to leave bigger gaps than usual and have less stuff in so they have to jump and strech more. I'm going to add some perches at some point aswell.

It feels really bare compared to usual :oops:

isn't it very messy around the cage?
i have a CN and would like to scatter feed on the whole floor,but i think this will result in a very big mess around the cage.
i now scatter feed them in a little tray and in their toilets,but this is not ideal.
