they dont really know what to do as i think both have of them have always been in a small hutch which was about a quarter of the size of this cos it is huuuggggee! wasnt expecting it to be so big! both boys wont even try the ramps as they havnt a clue what they are! any ideas what i can try to entice them on to the top layers? ive already put some carpet up them so they can grip but there just not interested in anything apart from graham squealing at me when i put food in :))

with my lot i covered their ramp in fleece then sprinkled readigrass all the way up... it did work.. :)) most of the time though they copy each other.. so if they see one use it they soon realise and follow.. lol

Awwwwww it looks fabulous! x) When my boys were moved from hutch to cage they were nervous of the light and space, as hutches are quite dark ? So i found putting a blanket/bath towel over the top for a couple of weeks allowed them to get used to the new cage! :) For the ramps i'd do a veggie trail :)

That looks fantastic! I've stapled offcuts of carpet and vetbed to the ramps in my new cage to make them easier to climg, and Pudding & Squeak fly up and down them! I did tempt them with bits of their favourite foods at first, though ;)
