    Me again :p

    I've been looking into indoor rabbit hutches to get an idea for the price :)scared:) but all the ones I can find arent the size I want. I want it big! Two teirs and big, basically like the sizes of the larger outdoor hutches.

    Does anyone know of a good supplier of indoor hutches or somewhere that does really big ones?

    I think c&c cages are little bits of wire sections you get and put together and build your own cage out of :eek:

    I cant ever find C & C pieces anywhere around here!

    How about something like this Great Deals on Pens & Fencing for Small Pets at Zooplus: Small Pet Pen Jenny, 6 sided
    or
    Ruby Pen for Small Pets - 8 sided: great deals at zooplus
    you could put lino inside it and dedicate an area for the bun(s) :) They come apart so they can be made into any shape which is good :) You could use a wall as one side which makes it bigger aswell.
    I dont think you will find a shop brought "cage" that is big enough really, not for more than a few hours being shut in.

    I'll end up getting one big enough for me to sleep in :lol: I do want it big though as I think its so important to give them the space to move around and have enough space for some boredom breaker stuff :)

    definatly! I look for a place to sleep (dark area of the cage), a place to eat, a place to play and a place to dig and chew :eek: its important for them to be able to stretch out and have there own space too :) x

    I have the Ferplast 140, apparently one of the biggest indoor cages available.

    Still too small imo, even for dwarf buns.

    I no longer use mine for rabbits.

    I havent seen any in the flesh and cant remember the last time I saw an indoor cage so I cant remember how spaced out the bars are but can they be used to hamsters? I expect the bars are too spaced out but hey, might as well ask :D

    lol, no it wouldnt be suitable for a hamster. Even a slendar rat could easily get through.

    Im currently using the base as a sand pit.

    i have even gone as far as getting weld mesh quotes to build my own as ALL the indoor cages are crap the heights are usually max 2ft if that and you need at least 2.5 feet so that a small rabbit can stand on its back legs.

    just to warn you dwarf lops arnt actually that small for offical showing they should be between 1.9 and 2.4 kg (my rabbits are 1.4 and 1.7)

    if you have to have to get a shop brough cage then why not go for this one but some how take the roof off so allow the rabbits to stand up on the top deck.
