Bin cages, as you might guess, are hamster cages made out of storage bins! They are the most economical hamster cage option, and can be super fun to make!
Our sister site, California Hamster Association, has more info if you are planning on making a bin cage!
Currently the only bin that we know meets our minimum of 600 square inches is the Sterilite 50 Gallon Stacker, available at Walmart. During the holiday season, they are available at Target with a red lid!
Our favourite option are the barred playpens available at pet stores and amazon*. This is what we use now!
For your first bin cage, wire playgrounds are an awesome option! You simply have to twist the panels apart at the length you need and secure them to the cage--super easy! There are no sharp edges to harm you or your hamster!
