I also bought them a new bigger bed for their little hutch where they sleep at night. They did not all fit in the old bed before now where there is four of them 🙈.


I don’t have a picture of them using it yet, I only placed it there late evening today.

The first 4 pictures are the old beds and u can see most of the times one is left out in the second bed and the last two pictures is the bigger new bed 🙈

Hiya 👋,
We build them today a new bigger hay rack ourselves, as sometimes when I don’t go to them in the early morning as I have for example an appointment or the kids are in a mad mood whatever they still have enough hay, like they never run out of it but not enough to feel comfortable with, for my personal opinion.

Also if we were to go away for a weekend or long weekend I wanted also an option to make it possible we won’t need a pet sitter just for a weekend.

We made it firstly without a top as we hope they won’t be able to hop in or use the “ thin” wood to jump on.

Stay safe
Eve

Certainly a good idea to make sure they never run out of hay. I do think it looks dangerous without a top, I have seen cases where bunnies break limbs in these types of racks. On the pics it looks like they can easily get in from the shelf. Also, make sure they can't get their heads stuck. I would not leave a bunny for more than 12 hours let alone a weekend. If they are not eating, they can get liver damage after 6 hours. Not eating for 24 hours can be fatal.

Hi 👋
Thanks for your input, we thought there might be a 50:50 chance they will sit in the hay rack aannndddd they did 😂🤣 so we made a top for the hay rack.

It isn’t very high so they wouldn’t injure their limbs from jumping down.

Also we do feel comfortable to go away for a weekend or a long weekend once we know they will have enough hay and enough water as we constantly have them on the camera to be able to see and watch them while we are away.

And four rabbits never get tired of entertaining themselves 🙈

We will see for now we will go nowhere with the Corona virus 🦠 and for next year or the year after we will also see if we find a good pet sitter who we trust and maybe looks after their pets in return for their holiday.

Good night
Eve

Ah and I checked before our self made rack is similar to the racks you buy for the distance of the bars
