Default Re: Kerry Vs Marrakech Vs ??

Slowly getting there. I've included quite a lot of additional ventilation on the side with 21 x 16mm holes each side. They are also staggered with the back vents to assist the airflow. I've replaced the bottom plastic air vent with a solid metal vent, which has 5mm ridges, and also put a lock on the doors to prevent any Houdini antics.

I've got a couple of things on order at the moment for inside, including a wooden sand bath, a wooden two-chamber house, and a platform. I'd like to replace the current house with the wooden one once new hammy is tame. I'll also add more 'stuff' after a bit of initial taming.

Currently looking at what hamsters need a home at a nearby rescue. Will see if something works out.

It's looking good but needs more ventilation in my opinion anyway. I'd definitely go for a meshed lid and a hanging plant with a free standing wine rack. I have one made from horse shoes.

Thanks Ria. Like I said, I'm not averse to putting ventilation in the roof if it turns out it's needed. The enclosure is in a large and well ventilated room, it has large holes that are on opposing sides, and also create a chimney effect. The ventilation seems fine. I'll absolutely keep an eye on it and modify if needed. We have plenty of resources, knowledge, and time to fix any issues that might arise. Coupled to that we have a couple of emergency cages, so no hammy will be coming to any harm thanks for all your feedback!
