I still remember the smell when a cage cleaning is skipped! LOL I used to have around 50 cages I used. Now that I'm into aquatics, I don't miss the stench a bit!

For a smaller number of cages, look for swiss webster mice. Originally bred for labs, they have between double and triple the litter size.
