Do you have somewhere for them to hide in in the cage? We use little kiddy stools, cardboard boxes and towels pegged to the corner of the cage. It's important that they have somewhere to hide when they get scared.

Right now I have a separated little kitchen area for them with the bottom of a hamster cage and put carefresh bedding in it. For the most part they have only been going to the bathroom in there and I've had to clean it out pretty much every day and carefresh is not inexpensive. So I was thinking about buying a corner litterbox but I didn't know what I should put in it that won't cost me a fortune, suggestions?
If you can find a feed store or home and garden store that sells it in large quantities that would be my suggestion. Our local FleetFarm stores in the midwest sell them for $6.00 for what amounts to a months supply. If I don't feel like making the drive, my local pet supply store sells it for about $11.00
If in a pet supply store be sure to ask if they have the bulk or bale size quantities, they usually put the tiny tiny bags out on display for the tiny petstore cage size litter box for $6.99 - $9.99 and the larger bales in back.
