In reply to: Franke and Alder 's message, "Cage requirements" on 08:58:57 09/29/09 Tue

No larger than 1/2" spacing between bars for flying
squirrels. The 1/2" x 1" or even 1/2" x 6" is ok.
A cage size of 18" x 18" x 36" is about the minimum
size for a pair.
More nest boxes than the number of squirrels in a cage
is best.
You don't need to change the nesting material in a nest
box often. They like a "messy" nest box. They will pull
the nesting material out when they want it changed. If
you change it, it doesn't smell like home to them...
