It’s empty in here!
Ham loves this cage, we’ve had this cage for about 3 months now and definitely seen a positive behaviour change. However, the wood house (which she loved) is not treated and so got stained with wee very quickly so had to be thrown away. Also, Ham has managed to bite a few holes in the cage (even though she has plenty of toys 🙄) so I will unfortunately have to switch to a bin cage eventually as am not paying the massive price tag again. Is a shame as this cage is great! Just wish base was thicker
Very spacious cage, the tray is really deep so its excellent for putting loads of bedding in there so they can burrow The wooden ladder doesn't have much grip on it and my hamster was reluctant to use it so I added a wooden bendy bridge which has much more grip. The cage wasn't packaged the best & when it arrived i noticed one of the top corners of the blue tray had snapped off, it doesn't impair the use of the cage at all- just something to note. Overall I'm really happy with it!
It’s great, there’s not much else to say. It’s the ideal size and has great wooden platforms and hut. It comes with a wheel but I used a slightly bigger one for my Syrian hamster. I bought it nearly 2 years ago and has held up well. This is definitely worth it over cheap, small and cramped cages that are sold in pet stores. It’s just a great cage!
First one I ordered came snapped, but will be used by a rescue centre which is a bonus. The second one came with a smaller snap in it, but I didn't want to have to wait for another. Overall, a good, spacious cage. The ladder needs more ridges as it's difficult for my dwarf to get up, but she seems very happy with all the space this cage provides. A shame that it couldn't get here in one piece, twice. Ledge also doesn't fit all the way to the side, may need covering in case a paw gets stuck
My hamster really loves this cage as it's much bigger than his original one. The only thing keeping this cage at 4 stars though, are the side hatches being too small. The upper hatch is great and allows you to work and adjust anything in the cage but hamsters are prey animals and hate it when they catch a hand going down from above even if they know you're there. Having a larger side hatch would be amazing.
I'm buying this cage for my syrian hamster, chicken nugget, in a couple of weeks and it looks really good! It exceeds the minimum size by far and I'm sure my hammy will be really pleased with it. I've read all reviews and seen a couple saying their hamster chewed through the base but mines not much of a chewer at all, so this shouldn't be an issue. Well done again zooplus! I will update when the cage arrives!
I bought this cage for my 2 gerbils. It's amazing! My parents weren't really keen on getting such a large cage with bars because they didn't want all the bedding to fall out or for it to look ugly. But this cage is the complete opposite! The floor space is perfect and the basis is large which means not any bedding comes out. The cage fits in perfectly in our house and it's like a mansion for my 2 pet gerbils, Chico & Pip :)
I love the large size of this cage. It is perfect for my mice and my late syrian hamster but unfortunately the platform that comes with one of the cages i brought (i purchased 2) didn't fit and kept falling so i had to modify it so it stayed up. The small doors of the cage makes taming hard when multiple mice are in the same enclosure. The wheel that came with isn't silent but I really like using it with my small animals. I really do recommend this cage due to its size and simple design.
Got this for son's syrian hamster. Feels quality build and Lovely size for hamster, with plenty of space to explore. Only thing stopping 5 star: -Wheel needs replacing for syrian (we got 28cm trixie instead) - 2 front doors a small. Need to be a little bigger.
Bought this cage for my female Syrian & never had any issues with it! She’s naturally quite active so needed a large cage with a decent amount of floor space & this cage is great for that :) it definitely fits all her needs
I am not happy with the side clips as I feel as though they don't secure the base to the wire top very well and the wire top appears to be warped since it pops inwards whenever I go and lift up the cage but I am happy with the overall size of the cage.
Using it for my new addition and he loves it it’s sooo roomy. Soo much burrowing space can’t recommend it enjoyyyy.
We bought this cage for our Syrian hamster Coco. I think it’s an extremely affordable cage compared to other cages of its size, i.e. big enough! It has a very deep base so that lots of substrate can be added for burrowing which is a great bonus. One of our main concerns with the cage is that the platform has fallen on a few occasions when opening/ moving the cage to hoover behind it. Fortunately this has never harmed coco, but it could have. It’s also just a pain. Overall good cage though!
Excellent sized cage, solid construction and easy to assemble. One flaw is that the little lips at front and back make it quite difficult to lift the metal off the base, you get one side out and the other pops back on, it can also be quite heavy to lift but that's not too big an issue. Definitely recommend this cage.
This is a great sized cage, well over the RSPCA old minimum guide of 80x50cm It is relatively easy to put together but the ramp could be improved as it can be difficult for hamster to get up. It has loads of space for plenty of enrichment and a deep base for plenty of substrate. Taking the top off is a nightmare though due to the ridges that the top must sit it to make it secure, it's a very very heavy cage and makes lifting down to clean difficult.
Got this cage for my Syrian hamster and it is huge. She loves the den and it's her favourite resting place. However, I gave this cage 4 stars out of 5 because the 2 front doors are easilly opened so I've had to secure them with locks so she can't escape. The wheel that comes with the cage is extremely noisy but she loves it even though we have tried a different quieter wheel, this is the wheel she always comes back to so don't want to remove it. It rattles, bangs and squeaks.
Debated for ages over various cages but went for this for size and solid platform. it is very roomy and initially our hamster looked a little lost and has worried me by falling off the ledge ( which weve now lowered) and climbing the bars and falling- which wasnt an issue in our smaller cage.Weve repaced the wheel with a 33cm trixie one which she LOVES- I mean never out of it! shell be exhausted. Hard to put top on and i had to adjust the clips as they are really loose on the front openings
What a great cage! It has improved my hamster's life a lot since he started living in there. It has a deep enough base to encourage burrowing and enough space that you can put as many of your hams' favourite toys in there as you like, creating a safe and exciting world for your ham. I couldn't recommend this cage more!
Cage is huge with lots of floor space & room for enrichment for a Syrian. Base is nice and deep for borrowing in substrate. Shelf and house is unfinished would so absorbs urine. Cages or not packaged sufficiently so first one turned up broken and a replacement was sent. Wire top does not line up with the base correctly as it has to click over 4 wedges to make it safe and it’s very difficult getting it back off the cage for cleaning. Great size and value but lacking on quality in some areas.
This cage is HUGE. It gives the owner so much scope with how to arrange it and the hamster loads of room to explore. The base is deep enough for digging without the substrate getting everywhere. My hamster only just moved in and already loves it, I cant get him of his 22cm wheel that I added in. The only worry is that the door hatches on the sides are easy to open, but this is easily fixed with pliers. Overall an amazing cage.
Bought this on Friday and came today some off the wood for the house and bridge thing came chipped one off the bits on the wire are loose the door is slightly bent. Hassle to put together
Never had a problem with Zooplus till now the packaging is extremely minimal not much protection and that is probably the reason for the base to have come broken I got a exchange that one was broke as well so my third cage has arrived not broken finally great cage though my Syrian loves it the wheel is very noisy so got the Trixie massive wheel
This is an awesome cage. It is a great quality build and my Syrian hamster has been living in it for quite a while now. It’s not tricky to put together and is a perfect size! The only problems I found was that: *the ladder is a little bit slippy and doesn’t have enough grip (fixed by buying an extra large bendy bridge) *the house has a gap behind it it so you are left with a small space where my hamster always slept and I couldn’t get to it (fixed by using Some sides to create a shady spot)
This is one of my favourite cages, I have had in it mice and hamsters. its very good quality and will be ordering another for my new Syrian.
This cage is (yes, i know everyone says it) so much bigger then I expected! The level is a bit hard to put inside the cage but it's quite easy to then move higher or lower. The wheel is 8" and very loud, but some oil fixed that. The house is enormous! So big it would accually fit a baby guniea pig! The ramp is quite big, and you have to attach some metal bits to it to be able to put it on the level, which can be quite difficult but once you manage then they Stay in place. The cage is just great!
I will say the cage is big but the base arrived broken
Barney cages are my favourite and I've just upgraded to this new size and I love it! I have a 3 tier climber as well as a playground in ias well as the items that come with the cage. I have upgraded to a 29cm wheel as the one that comes with it is too small for a Syrian. Well worth the money and great Quality.
Wow!! We have one happy hamster! Having previously had a "large" cage this one is practically a mansion! She is really enjoying the extra space! Everything was included as stated and easy to put together! Quick delivery! Fantastic value for money!
This is one of the best cages ever! its perfect for my Syrian and my dwarf hamsters, the wheel is a bit squeaky but I got a new one. This cage is perfect
It arrived quickly and my Syrian loves it so far. It is good quality and she loves the hideaway house.
I received my cage today and to my surprise it was huge! I was not expecting it to be so big, but my hamster loves it so far! No worries at all with it and I'm pleased with the look and quality of it. Brilliant overall cage and really recommend it to anyone looking for a great cage at a great price. You can't find these in pet stores!
I have a syrian hamster in this and she loves it. The bars are great for climbing, she likes to climb up to the roof bars then drop off. Plenty of room for toys and running around. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a happy hamster.
Our hamster is a bit mental & loves to climb and run around ALL THE TIME. His first cage was far too small so we got him this one. He still climbs (and drops aargh) but he's so happy!! There is so much space! Yes - it's so huge it's nearly bigger than my flat - and yes the wheel squeaks a bit but who cares?? One happy hamster. Amazing :-)
got this cage for my syrian hamster and it was bigger than i thought it would be but my hamster loves it. i find it so much easier to clean
I have 6 girls in here and it provides plenty of space and enrichment opportunities. I would recommend the Barney cage highly.
Excellent in size for your hammies, but come with some problems that i have noticed so far, some of the bar spacings are a bit larger than stated on the corners which dwarfs may find their way out! The bars do bend quite easily so due to the small bar spacing do not try to stuck something through them that doesnt slide in easily, also i had an escaped hamster last night as the side doors are extremely easily to push from the inside, so i suggest some padlocks for the side doors! But other than that the cage is very good for space, can add alot of toys in and hamster seems to enjoy!
Just received my cage today, kind of annoyed it took longer to arrive than expected and took longer than my other package from the order. Very big and spacious. Although I am annoyed as the attachments for the ramp are missing and the level is extremely hard to attach and quite difficult to move around once inside. I also found that the entrances are quite small on the front. Although the age is a lovely size and my hamster is very happy with the upgrade! I just need to buy more toys to fill it with!
Love this cage, got it this morning. The only problem was the wheel broke as soon as I took it off the cage. It's a bit fiddly but got there in the end. I've not put my hammie in there yet but I'm sure he will love it just as much as me. Wish I'd got this cage before getting the one I have now. So much space for my boys toys :) can't wait to put him in there :) can't fault the the delivery time either.
Researched this one cage after having a smaller one and felt this would be better. On arrival this cage is a lot bigger. My observations were the following:- There is a lot of give on the cage bars especially on the top hatch. I am very careful when pushing these clips in. The two side hatches are ok but I think as our Syrian as she gets bigger she could push this open. There is a lot of flex on the base. It's good value and our Syrian loves it.
After 2 cracked cages arrived from Amazon we decided to order this cage from zooplus instead. Its massive and absolutely perfect for our group of 3 roborovski hamsters. I would definitely recommend this cage for any hamsters or mice.
