    I know rabbits are natural burrowers and they often do ‘dig’ on things for the odd few seconds however lately they have been digging rather big holes at the side of their run - why is this?
    Cheers

    Sometimes it will come with age, especially if your's are youngsters and beginning to hit maturity!

    Make sure any outdoor runs are escape proof by digging mesh in a few inches below the ground, fixing to the base of the run and backfilling the earth and turfing.

    they are 6 and 3 months so probably that! they’ve got a lot of toys but seem to prefer playing in the mud

    My Jack suddenly likes digging too, but he's two years old. He's always liked the idea of digging but didnt realise he could dig mud until some time last week, even though he's been spending his days in the run.
