These are some tub cages (made by Wellington Hamsters not me) that I use. These are old pictures I have made about 7/8 more of them since. I have also made some smaller ones which I use to seperate boys and girls from litters before they go to their new home.

This is a split cage also made by Wellington Hamsters. They are really good for pairing up Chinese as it gives you and idea of how they are going to react before you introduce them.

If you have one of those split ones spare, I'll buy it :D
If not how much do you think it would cost to make a split one? materials etc :D

I'm sure it won't be much more, just the cost of a larger bin and a divider :D

It isn't much more cost-wise Matty it just takes 3 times as long to put a divider in place. I only have one at the moment. I made 3 new tubs yesterday but all singles.

My single tubs cost me about 5 each plus time^^
I use a soldering iron to melt out the square for the mesh. You will need mesh, nuts, washers and bolts.

I will post a guide later on how I make them.

MR.CHEAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and sometimes Wilko's but Mr.cheap has the same tubs for 1 less each ^^
Wilko's sell them at 3 ish each in loads of different sizes!

And now I have heard about the hamster wiki article who needs my guide lol? (PS:that was rhetorical)

the nearest one to you is;
DROYLSDEN SHOPPING CENTRE GB - MANCHESTER M43 7AD
I love store locators ^^. Not sure if it's too far or not, I just used Stockport as a search reference.

I've been struggling to find some and was going to settle on the below boxes as they are great dimensions for the space and other cage I have but I will check out Wilkinson when I am in Leeds on Friday!
