omg where is this from? it's super cuteThe bunny condo we purchased for my daughter’s Holland Lop, Bubs. We placed the cage on top of a 4 storage bin unit; for all the bunny supplies He loves his personal space. We bring him out every day to exercise in the Living room. He truly entertains us with all his running around and crazy little binkies.
Did you build the outdoor set up? It looks very good! Does the rain make the hutch rot? I have a hutch like that and want to put it outside, but I am afraid that it will rot. Do you have something on the floor of the run? Do your rabbits dig out?outdoor set up (top is meshed and surroundings are fox proofed)
Yes I made it with treated timber and lots of mesh. I had wrist strain from using the wood staple gun so much haha. The hutch is fine at the moment - although it is quite a flimsy one. I've bought a roof panel to go over where the hutch is but I haven't fitted it yet. My rabbits don't dig for some reason. When my doe was pregnant she dug one shallow hole but hadn't since. You can create an underground boundary or a mesh skirt that would help with this though.Did you build the outdoor set up? It looks very good! Does the rain make the hutch rot?

I changed the flooring and rearranged a little.The first pic is from her outside hutch. She really doesn't go in there often mostly to relax after grooming and nail trimming just to give her some space after all the stress. The second pic is her inside crate. She is free to roam when I am home unless I'm asleep. So she is really only in there at night and when I'm at work. View attachment 40499View attachment 40500
Hey Playdoh! I am not totally opposed to outdoor housing but do prefer indoor. Some climates are more suitable than others for outdoor housing (and some climates are not suitable at all). In your video, I like that people can see the stark contrast between the former small hutches and the current large space they now have.Wow!! First off as a new member since November of last year. I have really enjoyed all the indoor show offs. But I respect blue eyes greatly and I know she said Indoor pens or cages only. I really loved the above outdoor home made built pen I saw! If my post isn't allowed please remove it, but my husband and I made it for our 3 rabbits ( don't know the breeds mixed) about 6 pound rabbits. Please feel free to delete my video post if you want but it's a great DIY idea. Thanks
I really like what you have done, and I miss not having rabbits outside. Here are some of the problems I encountered.My outdoor setup for my rabbits. Not really the most beautiful set up and they miss there tunnel, got destroyed during the winter but will get a new one for summer.
They will often have fresh branches in the pen but have a few chewing toys scattered under the big hutch and in their cages.
The pen it’s 10 sq m, the big yellow hutch (2,75 sq m) and the small hutch (0,8 sq m).
The rabbits will never be in the pen during the night, always safely in their cages.
