    it is working fine but it is where she can chew on it and i don't want her to chew on the rubber insides, so i was looking for a safer alternative. :)

    if my bun tips her over she is trying to get the babies to explore and is her way of saying they are old enough to not need the box.. if i remember correctly your bun hasnt had babes yet?? i agree with @Popsicles try sticking it down

    I'm going to try the sticking it down idea. Our new bun likes to toss her box in the air inside her cage. We are not breeding but I gave her a box to hide in while she gets used to her new environment. She was an outside rabbit in a rabbitry, she is loving the indoor life so far.

    Just curious, is she a first time mother? If she’s that close to being due she wouldn’t normally toss around the nest box unless she’s either not really pregnant or is a first timer.
