Default Moving rabbits outdoors

Hi Looking for a bit of advice! We are planning on moving my bonded rabbits outdoors into a 6x2 hutch with attached 8x6 run as I think they will be happier and they have become so destructive indoors! I was wondering if I have left it too late to do it now? Thanks!

What is the climate where you live? If you have cold winters, then it is too late to try to move them out now. They won't have grown a sufficient fur coat as they would have if they had been acclimated to outdoor living. Spring is the time to bring an indoor rabbit outdoors.

Rabbit's typically acclimate pretty well as long as the temp inside vs outside isn't extreme. Knowing your climate would help. Around us it's still in the upper 80's and there's plenty of time left before it gets cold.
