Pet rat

Hey, I am thinking of getting pet rats, and I wanted to know if I could keep them in a modified bird cage. Its just a regular rectangular cage, and i'm going to put substrate in the bottom and build platforms with ladders where the perches used to be. I was just wondering if they would be able to get out of the bars. They are 3/4 inch wide, and vertical. Would this be alright or would I need to add some sort of hardware cloth or something to prevent them getting out. Thanks.

They may be able to slip out as juveniles. but adults probably wont get out. 1/2 inch works best.
