It's 28inch, and no, that's not poo , I couldn't find his pellet dish then but I found it and have since put them on it.
Oh okay. I couldn't tell in the photo. If it was poo, I was going to suggest moving the litter box there. But if he's trained, no worries.

The good thing about ex-pens is how many different ways they can be configured. By making use of an existing wall, it's easy to double the space. Here's an example of how a similar pen creates more space. You don't have to copy it exactly, of course, but it may give you an idea of ways to make the space larger with the same pen you already have.

It has to be secured so he can't move the pen away from the wall. This can be done with hooks in the wall OR, if one doesn't want to do that, bricks or heavy blocks can prevent it from moving. It's a matter of testing what works.

In my photo, we have a heavy litter box and that piece of furniture on the right side that kept it from moving on that side. The other side has a 14" square piece of tile on top of the carpet that keeps the pen from moving on the left side. Bunnies tend to pull (rather than push) the pen. So just get creative to find out how to prevent it from moving. Try something and then pull and push on it at bunny level to see what happens.

So great that he’s litter box trained, given that I would suggest something on the floor. I have a reusable puppy pee pad in mine that’s 4x4. You can find a variety of colors and sizes on Amazon, I’ve also seen circle shape which might work better for your set up. Maybe a place to hide (mine hides under bed) and some more toys and things to chew so he doesn’t get bored

Hi.. My guess is that you are making alot of adjustments to his environment, so he probably just needs some time to get accustomed to his larger living space. Leave the gate open so he knows that he does have the option to come out, if not, let him take things at his own pace.

Hey he likes having a few toys , hideys ,tunnels and food out when he's out.
He's running around right now 😃
He loves my guinea pigs ! But I don't let them go together of course ! It's not fully bunny proofed so I keep a very close eye on him , I'm getting the things tommorow!
