Converting to a closed rattery in May. This means no visitors in the animal room.

The very large bins are mostly for Syrian Hamsters and my Opossums. The bins measure 32 inches long and 19 inches wide. The tall cages are critter nation triples.
I use micro cut shredded paper, newspaper, and cardboard mixed with PetsPick low dust kiln dried pine for all of my animals as bedding. I also sometimes add Sweet PDZ to the cages as an added ammonia and ordor control. All cages are cleaned once a week. I generally clean the entire rattery/hamstery every Thursday and Friday (bins on Thursday & critter nations on Friday) Cleaning takes about 6-8 hours for each day, more if all 25 of my cages are being used at once. This is largely due to the paper being shred as I clean.
This photo features the typical set up for my Syrian hamsters.
