Wooden cages – how are the cages arranged

       Do you have a cage with a bottom net? In this way, you need some sawdust to deodorize and absorb water under the bottom net in winter

       If there is a toilet, you can buy it. In fact, if the cage is marked, it doesn’t need much. The toilet will leak

       The use of the toilet is usually a cabinet cage

       And in summer, the chinchilla is very strong

       If you can’t, you have to teach it by yourself. If you can’t, you can put your excrement in the toilet and get it for several times

       Besides, the toilet is made of ceramic, which is not easy to be knocked over by chinchilla. The plastic chinchilla is easy to overturn

       What other questions can I ask

       Hope to adopt

       The standard cage does not need a toilet. In any case, it will leak. The toilet is usually a cabinet cage.

       Feeding conditions

       The environmental conditions for raising hairy mice are quite strict. At present, indoor cage is widely used in China. The main facilities are houses, cages and temperature, humidity and lighting equipment.

       house

       It is built in a high-rise, sunny and dry non downtown area. The windows should be smaller, and the north and south windows should not be opposite to each other to prevent air convection. In winter, there should be heating equipment, preferably water heating or steam heating. The indoor temperature should be kept between 10 and 20 ¡æ throughout the year. Too low or too high is not conducive to the life of hairy mice. It is suitable to raise 100 breeding rats in 20 square meters. The cage can be stacked 3-5 layers. The front window of the room should be installed with green curtain. The floor should be kept away from moisture and cool. One 40 Watt fluorescent lamp should be installed every 10 square meters.

       The shed should be built in the place with leeward and sunny, high and dry terrain and good drainage. In northern China, it is cold in winter, so it is usually reared indoors. Generally, the combined iron wire cage (preferably galvanized iron wire cage) is used. The volume of each cage is 50cm ¡Á 45cm ¡Á 10cm, or 60cm ¡Á 30cm ¡Á 30cm. The diameter of cage passage is 13cm ¡Á 13cm. The mesh of wire cage is 2.4 cm ¡Á 1.2 cm. If the structure of bamboo and wood is used, the cage is easy to be gnawed. The male and female should be kept separately during the non estrous breeding period. In addition to the feeding trough, drinking water pipe and springboard, a movable wooden litter box with the size of 30cm ¡Á 25cm ¡Á 20cm should be placed in the cage before the female pregnant and giving birth. In addition, a sand table (made of wood or iron) is placed in the cage. The size of the sand table is 30cm ¡Á 15cm ¡Á 8cm. It contains 4cm thick dry and clean fine sand. It is better to put a small amount of talcum powder. In addition, some small sticks can be put into the cage for rats to grind their teeth.

       mouse cage

       Cage requires 16 iron wire, processed into 1.5cm mesh, galvanized, electric welding.

       1. Breeding cage

       The best breeding cages were 1 male and 4 female, 5 single cage groups, 1 in each single cage, 50 cm in length, 35-40 cm in width and 35 cm in height. A passage was set up under the rear of a group of cages, 10 cm wide and 15 cm high, for male rats to enter and exit during mating. Each cage has a round hole with a diameter of 7-8 cm, which is connected with the mating channel, so that the male and female can freely enter the female cage when the male and female are in love. A sand bath box is placed between the two cages.

       2. Squirrel cage

       It can be a single cage or a combination cage.

       accessory equipment

       1. Food box

       That is, the granular material box is used to hold the fine material and is made of galvanized iron sheet.

       2. Hay box

       It can be made of iron sheet and wire mesh.

       3. Drinking bottle

       It is suitable to use 150-200 ml vials with rubber stopper dropper.

       4. Sand bath box

       The hairy mouse should take a sand bath once or twice a day. Sand bath has a certain effect on the growth and cleaning of plush, so it is necessary to have equipment. Placed on the side of the cage, can be placed in the cage. Sand used in sand bath can be ordinary yellow sand or white sand, but it must be disinfected before use. First, sieve the sand to remove dust and large particles, take the middle fine sand, soak and wash it with boiling water, then dry or dry it out, and then add 1% – 2% talc powder to mix and set aside.

       5. Cork block

       Soft wood block or pumice stone (Jiangshi powder) should be placed in the cage to nibble on the molars by the hairy mouse. The cork block should not be too large and its shape is not limited. However, it should not contain the smell of pine oil or wood.

       6. Stool tray

       It is specially used for collecting excrement and urine, and the size depends on the size of the cage.

       Feeding food

       Hairy mouse is a kind of herbivorous small animal. It has a wide range of feed sources, simple feeding equipment, convenient management, less labor input and low cost (the cost of raising an adult mouse for one year is about 1000 yuan), which has the advantages of quick effect and high income, and has a great development prospect.

       Because of its long digestive tract and well-developed cecum, it is usually fed with hay, grain and green fodder, or compound feed, including herbs, vegetables, wild vegetables, mulberry leaves, elm leaves, alfalfa and grains, and vegetables with too much water content such as cabbage are not suitable for feeding. In addition to all kinds of Cereals, concentrate feed can also be fed to wheat bran, corn flour and soybean cake powder. Add a small amount of refined salt, yeast powder, bone powder and other minerals, such as calcium, zinc, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, iron, copper, cobalt, manganese, etc. the addition amount is generally calcium 1%, phosphorus 0.5%, potassium iodide 0.3/10000, copper sulfate 0.5/10000, zinc sulfate 1 / 10000, ferrous sulfate 1.5/10000, manganese sulfate 1 / 10000. For example: alfalfa 22%, corn 10%, soybean meal 18%, wheat bran 17.5%, wheat 14%, barley 12%, bone meal 2%, salt 0.5%, yeast powder 4%. The adult is fed about 25 grams per day, supplemented with hay and green feed such as alfalfa, clover, Echinochloa crusgalli, cat tail grass, wild vegetable, plantain, dandelion, bitter cabbage, water celery, carrot, etc., which is conducive to growth and development, fresh and juicy, palatability is good, can stimulate appetite. The combination of green fodder and concentrate feed should be determined according to season, temperature and the feces of hairy mice. Pregnant females should be fed with more vitamin E and protein. For the parturient females, proper amount of acidified milk powder and multi-dimensional glucose (one scoop per meal) should be added to the newborn rats to improve the survival rate. The feeding amount of Rattus Trichoderma should be controlled scientifically according to its biological characteristics. Excessive feeding will not only waste and increase the cost, but also affect the growth and development of hairy mice and even cause gastrointestinal diseases. The results showed that the amount of activity in the daytime was small and the food was little, and the amount of activity at night was large. The adult body weight is about 500 grams, and the daily feed intake is about 5% – 6% of the body weight. Pellet feed accounted for 80%, hay and green feed accounted for about 20%. Each animal was fed with 1 Ping spoonful of pellet feed (about 15g) at a time, and the forage was not restricted. Generally, they were fed twice a day at 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. every day. When feeding fresh green fodder such as fresh grass, it is necessary to air it first, not to feed wet grass with dew. Hay should be cut short and grain should be ground. Fine powder feed is easy to choke throat, often cause foreign body pneumonia, wet material is easy to corrupt, and easy to cause enteritis after feeding. Feed variety should be stable, from dry to fresh or from fresh to dry, must be carried out step by step, the excessive time should not be less than 1 week, at the same time, keep clean drinking water in the water dispenser throughout the day.

       1. There are at least three floors for the layout of chinchilla cages.

       2. The most simple and practical combination is two arc pedals and three long planks, from low to high. There must be a transition between the top and bottom layers, and be staggered horizontally like steps, rather than overlapping.

       3. Making full use of the three-dimensional space in the cage, chinchilla likes to jump up and down, and should give him space to live on each floor.

       4. Provide a wooden house for chinchilla. The hole of the wooden house should be convenient for him to enter and exit. You can enter the wooden house from all directions and positions of the cage.

       5. Put chinchilla’s toilet on the bottom floor to prevent it from overturning.

       6. Any piece of furniture should be placed firmly.

       7. Hang the jug as high as it can reach when it looks up, so it won’t get wet when drinking.

       How to arrange the chinchilla cage? I believe many friends know that it’s better not to raise them separately, because they like the complicated and crowded home environment. If the space of the cage is too large and there are not many things in it, it will make chinchilla unhappy. How to arrange the cage? Let’s learn about it in the following article.

       1. Generally, the layout of the cage should be divided into at least three layers.

       2. The most simple and practical combination is two arc pedals and three long planks, from low to high. There must be a transition between the top and bottom layers, and be staggered horizontally like steps, rather than overlapping.

       3. Making full use of the three-dimensional space in the cage, chinchilla likes to jump up and down, and should give him space to live on each floor.

       4. Provide a wooden house for chinchilla. The hole of the wooden house should be convenient for him to enter and exit. You can enter the wooden house from all directions and positions of the cage.

       5. Put chinchilla’s toilet on the bottom floor to prevent it from overturning.

       6. Any piece of furniture should be placed firmly.

       7. Hang the jug as high as it can reach when it looks up, so it won’t get wet when drinking.

       In fact, the most direct way to judge whether or not chinchilla likes the layout of the cage is the reaction from the moment it enters the cage. Chinchilla is a kind of small animal with the spirit of trying. He will explore every possible road to every corner. He can swim smoothly at the bottom and the top floor without falling. The furniture in the cage works. There is no unreachable place, so the cage is successfully arranged.

       I think LZ asked how to arrange the furniture in the cage. Generally, the standard cage should be arranged at least three layers. The simplest and practical combination is a small cabin, an arc-shaped pedal and a long board. The four corners should be combined from low to high in the same direction. According to the thinking of the dragon and cat jumping, for example, the bottom northwest corner is 6 or 7 cm away from the bottom net, and the horizontal board can be put on the top (the food basin is high from the ground net, which can prevent urine and food) The upper southeast corner of the arc, and then up to the southwest is the wooden house, which is probably the meaning. Each floor is not too far away from each other. Let it play by itself. If the position is awkward, adjust it

       The cage is covered with sawdust. The chaff can suck out the urine, and then clear the pile of wood bran after urinating. Therefore, the rats and rabbits usually use the sawdust to crush, and then put water and food in one side of the cage, which should be packed in small vessels with lower level. Then you can put a small wooden table for it to play with. Chinchilla likes to sleep, so the wood bran is broken and thick. You can cover the three sides or both sides of the cage with cloth. Hope to help you.

       I’ll tell you how I arranged it. I have a big cat, a little cat and a cat. I have an ordinary cage. The cage has a nest. The mother and the child like to sleep together. They are directly raised on the balcony, and let them out in the evening, and play with them on the balcony. The next morning, they go back to the cage and go to sleep. Therefore, some people emphasize that the cage must be high and large, but no matter how high or large, it is also locked in an area. It is still not happy. If you are willing to free the balcony for them to play, they will live happily. If you’re willing to give them the balcony, the cage doesn’t need to be as high as it is. After all, they are animals that sleep during the day and move at night. Although the stool on the balcony will be pulled everywhere, but their stool is hard, showing no smell, so sweep it the next day. In this way, the cage doesn’t need to be cleaned often. Everyone has their own way of raising. I think my way of raising is very good. For your reference

       If the economy allows, you’d better buy a stainless steel dragon cage. This kind of cage is expensive, but the quality is absolutely good. It looks like it’s high-end and atmospheric. If you don’t want to change the cage frequently, this kind of cage is absolutely the best choice. If the economy is relatively poor, you can choose electroplating dragon cat cage. This kind of cage is more common, but the surface is easy to be oxidized and rusted. The humidity in the home is relatively high, and it is troublesome to clean the cage every day. The price of this kind of cage is about 100 yuan, which is available on some treasure.
