I have 10 rats and only have 1 silent spinner. Only 1 of the ten rats is interested in running in it, and the alpha of my group Joey loves making his nest in it. I guess if my rats were using the wheel I'd add more

I got my wheel when I get the girls, Pixie and Gigi used it as a shelving unit, no interest what so ever in running in it. Cue Delilah's arrival. After 4 months she decided to climb onto the shelves and see what they could do - and what do you know, it's actually some kind of exercise machine! From the amount of noise she makes in the night, she loves it.

I would only get a second if I felt they needed more in cage storage space.

I added a Wobust Wheel to the existing spinner when I had Daisy, Flora, Alba, Asha, Aziza and Casper all living together, but that was mainly because Alba alone filled the spinner and threw major foofing, shrieking tantrums if anyone else tried to join her. :oops: :lol:
