Makeshift Nest Boxes

Postby blood red yeti » Mon Oct 28, 2013 1:37 pm

I'll be getting my first flyer soon, if all goes well this Saturday, and I just realized last night that in my haste to have all the enrichment items, food, and to get the cage done that I have completely forgotten to buy any nest boxes, so I was wondering what I could use as a substitute until then, I don't have access to a car so it could be a few weeks until I could get the materials together or make it out to a pet store. Thanks

Ya'ya likes to sleep in hanging mittens, socks, or hats. Those are usually easy to find around the house

None of my flyers have had nest boxes, they have a hammock with a cut up t-shirt in it.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I ended up using a shoe box and a couple old pairs of my pants. She really likes everything I've put in so far. Thanks again!
