cage building

Posted by heartzlink 7VA (My Page) on

Hello everyone, I have been building my own cages for several reasons for a year or so. Some are for grow out cages for chicks, some for rabbits etc.... At my local TSC, I can find 'cage wire' but it is not as rigid as some of my store bought cages and I would like to know if any one knows a good reasonable source for cage building supplies?? I have a very nice set of stacking rabbit cages where each cage is framed with metal work that locks in to the next cage and makes them stackable when necessary...... I can not find a source for the frame metal... also if anyone knows of a good J clip plier, please send me a link because I have broken three of those cheap ones sold at TSC for building rabbit cages......thanks so much for any input you can offer....

RE: cage building

I don't know where you would get the wire, but Jeffers Livestock catalog sells cage clips and other assorted cage accessories for chicks and rabbits.

There will be a metal and scrap yard somewhere in your area that buys scrap metal. They'll let you take a look at what they've got and sell you anything you find, by the pound.
