I currently have 2 ferrets (male and female) in a 182 Ferret Nation (double unit. I do want to add more if they will get alone. So my question is, how many can fit in the cage I have?

A ferret nation cage is not appropriate for guinea pigs. Guinea pigs need longer, not higher cages. They don't jump or even climb generally. What they need is running space -- on a flat surface.

I don't believe it was rude, just an oversight. I do think the ferrets will take care of there not being many in the cage in a VERY short time...they multiply just like guinea pigs do :)

Hah..answered my implied question. I would suggest searching the pictures of ferret cages on here and seeing if the owner has posted how many live in theirs. Hope i helped even a smidge :)

They share all 4 levels. I thought I read somewhere that 6 could fit in there.
