Before I knew better, I bought treats like that and such, but they are a choking hazard. Mine used to love the little marble sized treats that were covered in seeds, but they can get stuck in their teeth and potentially choke them.
The pellets should be plain too.
Should ship to where you are, but it might be a bit expensive.
They come with a combination of regular (c1inx1in) gids and the mesh type you are talking about in the same set; I think the mesh is designed for normal people who actually want to make a storage system and not a piggie cage to put small items like keys on top without them falling through.
The lid is zip tied to the bent grid. Here's a picture with it open.
Side view. I cut the ends to be slightly larger than the bent grid (maybe a quarter of an inch) all the way around. Then I poked holes in several places and zip tied the ends to the grids. You have to make sure you poke holes in places where you can place the zip ties so that they can't slide a bunch (in other words, at the intersections). You can also see the tall piece of coroplast that I put between the coroplast that covers the bottom of the cage and the grid wall to keep hay from getting behind the cage.
Grid is bent with the seamed side on the outside (otherwise it'll snap):
And a pig perspective without the tub underneath to catch stray hay. The hay on the floor is hay that I put there for the pigs to play in - it didn't fall out of the rack on its own.
Look! Oreo is not chasing the others away anymore.
There's a fleece tent with litter boxes with hay in 3 corners in case someone gets blocked from the hayloft.
Rocky sleeping in the hay/litter box.
My new tool for cleaning the deep cage. I was harder to reach the back of the cage without this. It's 40" long.
