I have a box of them (20) + 5 extra ones with 27 of the corner pieces going spare. I'm going to auction these off to help towards Bunny Fat Camp.

If you would like to make an offer for these please add to the thread. I'll leave it open for a week. If you live further than collecting distance let me know and I'll see how much they could be posted for. If no-one is interested I'll put them on ebay. :D

Sorry - They are the same as the ones in Crazyt123's post except they are silver in colour - kind of like these ones -

Will get a pic and post if you like? The grids themselves are 14"square, can't find an exact link as the argos ones have been discontinued but there are a few examples on the forum of how people have used them.

Would they be suitable for guinea pigs? If so I might be interested also.... :)

As much as possible!! :D In all seriousness I'm not sure how much they are at the mo, but if you're interested you could make an opening offer and see where it goes from there!

Lea-Anne - yes, I believe they are suitable for Guineas and because Guineas don't jump you can probably get and even larger area out of them!

I have put them on the Guinea Pig forum linked to us too. :D

I've been wanting some for ages, but I can't really get any till I've moved. However I did find some at screwfix direct which are around 20 quid for 4 cubes, which I think would be 12 sections, if anyone wanted a rough guide of starting price.

I really want to put an offer in, but you'd have to give me some idea of postage first. I'm in Sheffield.

Thanks,

Postage is looking quite expensive so far - the best I've found is about 10 on the internet. Will pop down the p/o today and have a chat with them see if I can get a better price.

For those that didn't win the auction, you can buy these in some B&Q (definately the one in Crewe) for 15/20ish.

Cubes are great - my pig cage & temporary cage for Millie looks like this:

Great cages! Thanks for the inspiration. :D

Does the piggie have a slide??? :lol:

Can I ask what have you used inside for the shelfs?

P.S. I'm about half an hour away from Crewe so might go and get some more! :lol:

The stuff on the shelves is called Coroplast, you can get it in sheets from signwriting companies.

Just found some on line

Screwfix have this kind at 18.99 for 4 cubes, these seem to have a smaller mesh.

http://www.screwfix.com/sfd/i/cat/97/p3057597_x.jpg


Or Robert May (never heard of them before) have the kind everyone seems to be aquainted with. 17 panels and 20 plastic connectors for 22

http://www.robertmay.co.uk/

Go to the download PDF cataloge page, select item Page 54 (Page 54, glass / wire cube build up system) and the PDF will open in your browser, scroll down to the wire ones. I think you can order by phone (?)

I'm getting some!!! :D

I've used them as an outdoor run but only under supervision, I wouldn't leave guinea pigs out in them if you're not there

Can just about see it here
