    Well it is adequate but I would make it at least twice that size with several levels, tubes and holes and lots of different compartments. I have often used short lengths of 3 and 4 inch diameter plastic pipe to make cages more interesting for ferrets, including peices which act as slides. You will need at least two dead end compartments which will be sleeping quarters and one larger, easily accessible one which will be their toilet.

    When they are awake they should spend that time outta cage they ain't like gerbils they are more akin to dogs and cats and not confined to a hutch or cage 24/7 plus theres the fact they won't get tame enough if you don't interact outside of the cage

    It seems suitable,. though adding an extra layer or something will make the ferrets happier, because they need as much room as possible. Either way, just so long as it's not too small, they'll be Ok if they have lots of time out of the cage!

    Good luck :)

    With ferrets, the bigger the better. They are incredibly active when they are not asleep.

    If you give them loads of tubes and hiding places with lots of holes to squirm in and out of.

    They need their environments changed frequently to keep them happy.

    If you have them out to play every day for four hours minimum, it will be fine.
