My boys have been moved back into the Explorer after intro's, my older lad isn't 100% convinced by the babies yet though so they only have 1 bed for now as they're all gladly sleeping together.

Chino's started slowing down a bit and doesnt find it as easy as everyone else, the big boys are huge, almost solid muscle and seem capable of anything and the babies will gladly throw themselves at anything but apparently havent a clue they're only small :lol: I've tried to make this layout work for everyone and I'm fairly happy I've succeeded!

My brand new SRS. I still have a few things coming in the post that I need to put in, but this is my set up so far. My 2 boys are loving all the space and the new things around them!

Think my SRS is finally coming together. I'm really happy with this set up and I think my girls are too!

Top half has their triangle thingy from Rat Pad, two new wooden perch things to climb on, haribo box is now better placed with bedding in, wheel, sputnik, pink house and litter tray.
Image

Bottom half has two hammocks, catch scratch poll, box full of strips of news paper, a wire/rope coil, little set of drawers and their wooden chew block and another litter tray.
Image

A digging box was later added to the bottom level which they are loving.
Image

And as a measure to stop them escaping on to my wheelchair, my dad got me a length of perspex cut from work. It goes up to the little level on the bottom so that is where they great me rather than on the floor of the cage. It's a bit low, and Edith has escaped a few times, gone on to the wheel of the wheelchair then on to the bed. :lol:

Image

^ Edith inspecting the perspex. It's working quite well.

I'm currently growing another digging box for the top and I wanna get more perches for them to climb on. (:

The explorer i no longer have. Bought second hand in brilliant condition for £80 off preloved.
Was home to Adam, Eve, Eden and Apple. No longer has this cage as i found it took up far to much room.

Also tried the fleece approach but this is what my girls thought of it.

Image

They always dragged the fleece into their hut.

I tried to make it a bit more challenging this time so the tubes are steeper and theres more jumping needed. The yellow tunnel and cardboard tube are there as "easy" routes for my older fella who's starting to show signs of HLD, but yet again he's proved me overly paranoid by leaping between stuff to get up :roll:

This was supposed to be the last pic! Much better than the aventura with the shelf, and I think it's a slightly bigger gap so I can actually fit something useful under there.

My easy going layout for the boys (Adrian has quite a bad ear infection so while his balance is off it's an easy one for them to negotiate and a settling in easy layout for the girls while they get used to their new cage. :D Girls on the right, boysies on the left. :)

Set up for four youngish boys. Have tried to add as much climbing opportunities in as possible to make up for the lack of space.

Any suggestions would be appreciated (Note - these should be sent via PM as replies are not permitted in this section of the forum).

Aventura Cage.

I took out the Aventura shelves yesterday and added the cat toy this morning. The girls really enjoy it; it uses up less substrate without the shelves, and gives more room for hanging things.
