Personally I think 9 ltr is too small.This is just what I think. I have 4 girls in a 60 ltr and single males in habitat cages, approx 20 ltr each.

I would second that that is small but its entirely your choice and what you judge best. But from keeping our does in larger enclosures weve really seen how active they are when theyre healthy, and really appreciate the extra room

I cant remember how many litres the smallest RUB we have for does is, Ill find out. Basically you can fit a wheel, an igloo and two tubes in and thats it, for a small group of does

I think it also depends on the size of the mice to be honest, we have alot of 9l RUB's and we keep trio's in them and they seem fine and happy and they also breed well.

I think if you give them to much space it might make them insecure and they wont breed as well. That's just my opinion though. Some of the bigger mice like creams and pews we only keep 2 per box.
