Hi to all - 1st timer owner of 3 female Degu - Kim, Kourt, Khloe - lol. I have read loads but still worried about everything - got a large 2nd hand Parrot cage - need to make shelves make or buy toys - advise please.
Toys and accessories that I have used with success in my metal Midwest Critter Nation cages have been: attachable wooden shelves designed for chinchillas, hammocks designed for rats and ferrets, things to chew on like apple sticks and pumice stones (hanging or otherwise), bendable wooden log structures, wooden huts, straw huts, etc. Again, our Cages, Housing and Accessories section will provide you with lots of ideas. deguworld.proboards.com/thread/18716/accessories-make-buy
The cage needs to have 3 levels of 50x100cm or the same equivalent area. You can make the shelves with softwood that is safe to chew, or you can use plywood or furniture board that is more waterproof but then needs the edges protecting so they can't chew it. deguworld.proboards.com/thread/17316/cage-materials
Don't worry, we can help you figure everything out
