Answer by ChewyJul 01, 2021
The Small size is suggested for sugar gliders, flying squirrels, degus, gerbils and other small mammals (1-2 per box). The Medium size is suggested for young ground squirrels, small birds, and small groups of sugar gliders (up to 4). The Large size is suggested for grey squirrels, ground squirrels, medium-sized birds, and colonies of sugar gliders.

Is it waterproof?
Answer by ChewyDec 02, 2020
This nesting box is now waterproof, it is constructed using pet-safe pine timber.

You say it can fix birds, birds are different sizes. Would it fit macaws?

The spacious design is ideal for encouraging small animals to forage and not recommended for larger animals.

Served 3 rats over 3+ years

This box was a perfect addition to my single critter nation. It mounts perfectly to the bars of the cage with ease or fits well on the floor of the cage, too. My rats are comfortable in the box and love pulling bedding into this thing. I couldn't figure out how to put the post in when I originally got it, but wasn't really worried about it for rats. They were happy with this thing, then so am I.

When I got it, it came in broken. No big deal, added some screws and made it work. Thought I treated it for mites, as I normally do, but about a week after it was in my pet’s cage, they got mites. Nothing in their environment had changed except for me adding this. It was upsetting and hundreds of dollars later at the vet, I threw it straight in the garbage. Make sure you treat it TWICE OR THREE TIMES before you give it to your babies. Super upsetting and a huge waste of money.

Great for gerbils!

I wasn't expecting a huge box from the medium sized I bought but it was huge. Perfect for my boys and very sturdy. I recommend since they love it very much.

Quality box

The box is great and sturdy but the screws were too short to adhere to any fence, limb or post.

poorly constructed

I put this box outside on my deck for squirrels and it fell apart in a matter of weeks. It’s not well joined, and has some design flaws.

Large box is very small

I thought this would be big enough for my small mandarin hen but it's barely big enough for a small baby chic. Seems like good quality and made well but just too small.
