Hi guys,

I put in a plastic box into their cages. It has been 2 days now and they are still not going inside. Everytime i see them, they are around but not inside. What can i do to make it easier for them ? By the way, i also did put some perlite and those wood shavings inside.

Thanks in Advance.

Yes, you just have to wait it out. They have to be comfortable and unafraid of the new addition to their cage. Ours had a very similar situation and after about 3 and 1/2 weeks they were both going in and out comfortably. Not to worry.
