    where to buy Rat breeding lab cages

    I want to start breeding mice and rats... does anyone know where I can buy breeding cages like labs use? I've seen some online that look good but I have no idea where I can find them. I'm thinking something like this:

    Big apple has various sized ones but are a little pricey http://www.bigappleherp.com/Big-Appl...c=2&category=4.

    Racks are the way to go if your breeding for multiple snakes/lizards. A lot cheaper and easier to maintain but you need a few tools to make them.

    Big Apple is where we got ours. Over the past 3 years we've purchased 12 large and 6 medium size and they run between $40 - $50 each. We did buy one small for mice but we have had zero luck trying to breed mice and luckily rarely have a need for them.

    Recently we made one from the direction on one of the stickies above and it works really well.

    I agree with the rack system if you have the time, tools, talent and room for one.
