    And here is a run I made using chicken wire and an old metal miniture greenhouse frame:

    Its only a temp. run, just until I get a larger one :)

    Please note there are no sharp wire ends on the inside of the run.


    Hope you liked.

    I'm really sorry to say this but those hutches and the run are far far too small for rabbits :(

    RSPCA advices min 6ftx2ftx2ft and i never shut my buns even in that for longer than overnight. The run needs to be big enough for buns to jump around in.
