For those who use bins... how big are the bins you use? How many mice in each bin? Thanks!

I think the ones I have are 7'' by 11'' and i usually keep 1 doe with a litter, or a buck and doe paired together, or a single doe in each one. Right now I'm a little cramped for space because I'm saving litters for Rodent Fest sales, though. Embarassed

I have different sizes, I'll have to measure to be sure.
I only use clear bins with locks on the handles.

I actually like the 15- 17 QT sterilite for single boys, one litter, or a breeding pair.

I'm slowly switching all my bins over to Really Useful Boxes (RUBs) as money and time allow (I wait for the buy 2 get 1 free sales at Office Depot!). I've used cheaper bins but just haven't been as happy with their quality, and my slight OCD hates that they were all miss-matched. RUBs are super smooth on the inside with very few places for little teeth to get a hold. I just last night finished the new single boy bins, they are the 9 litre size, internal dimension approximately 12.5" x 8.5" x 5.5". I also use the 17 litre size (internal dimensions approximately 15" x 12.25" x 6.7") for a doe and her litter, or a mother and her daughters I'm keeping, so usually 3-4 adults in one. I'll only do 3 adults if they are unrelated.
