Can you make a cage for a ferret with grids and coroplast?

Yes you can.

You have to double grids everything and make multi levels.

Do you know how big it will have to be for 1 ferret?;

I think a 2x4 will be big enough for one furret with 4 levels.

IT may not work too well because ferrets are great escape artists, maybe the mesh grids though.

It has to be built up though instead of built flat like piggie cages. You could do a 2x2 or 2x3 with about 3 levels going up. I wouldn't recommend using regular grids, the mesh grids would be more suitable.

Also I am moving this thread as it doesn't belong in cavy chat.

Yes definitely use the mesh grids. I recently tried building a cage of the regular grids for my new ferret rescues and just like the chinchillas, they will stick their head through the grid holes and can't pull them back out. I had to use wire snips to free one of the ferrets heads, so now I'm dismantling the entire thing. Double-gridding doesn't look so neat to me so I went ahead and bought them a huge ferret cage online.

In my opinion, these C&C cages (built of regular grids) are only safe for guinea pigs.
