Nope, I am 100% sure that mesh wheels are safe.  Spoked wheels, on the other hand, are very unsafe.  Maybe it was just a confusion between the two?
Two girls have arrived :) Names coming soon.

Before I put the wheel in (it came with another pair of girls I got) I did a search to see what people were saying. I didn't see anything too bad about them, so I figured it'd fine. The mesh holes are way tiny so I'm not too worried about it. Plus only one of my girls use it and she walks for about 10 seconds, stops, grooms herself, then does it all over. It's hilarious.

Ah, I'm so thrilled! My single-level CN arrived this afternoon and is now sitting empty and assembled across the room from me. It's huge and fantastic.

I'm also very impressed with Petstreetmall.com. For free shipping, I ordered last Tuesday and it arrived today, less than a week from when I ordered it! That's some serious service.

I can't wait to begin decorating it like everyone has here!

My Bella has the same wheel, She runs on it with her tail all curled up over her back. She' run on her wheel like this so much that her tail is almost always curled up like it. It's too cute.

I had one of those wheels.  The mesh isn't the unsafe part about them.  Hung up in the cage they are fine, but when they are on the ground suspended from the stand, the stand poses a danger.  One of my poor ratties got her head stuck by trying to get out of the wheel at just the wrong moment.  It's hard to explain how it happened in words, but believe me, you should not use them on the ground with the stand.  I nearly had a heart attack and threw the damn thing away.

^I think I see what you mean. If they stuck their head out to get out with it on the ground, there is a spot where the wheel's leg and the bar on the sides would squish her little head, right? Yeah I totally see how that would be horrible!

Exactly.  Thanks for explaining it so others understand and only use them mounted in cages.  Luckily my baby wasn't injured at all, but if she had been running on it so it was still really spinning, and I wasn't there, it could have gone very differently  :worry:

Mine isn't worth posting right now, It has majorly chewed liners and randomly colored hammocks in it...

The fiance and I went to Joannes today and bought about 6 yards of new fleece for liners. I'm going to toss a vast majority of the poor "dead" fleece from the martins. I cannot wait for it.

I'm also contemplating hitting up goodwill for some new toys for the girls. All the stuff thats in the martins, aside from their igloo and waffle house is a bit beyond well-loved.

I wish I knew how to sew so I could make my own hammock. How hard is it to learn?  :cheeky:

It's really not difficult at all, do you have a machine or are you going to hand-sew?
