    Hi! I plan on getting rabbits next year (when I move into a house) but I dont want to keep them outside due to a number of reasons. Saying that I will want them to be able to spend time outside in a large run but, stupid question, is that OK? Or will it be a bit of a "culture shock" for them and cause more stress than anything?

    Sorry if this sounds like a silly question but I'm doing as much research as I can before I get the rabbits :eek:

    during the summer months when the temp outside is about the same indoors it's ok, when you don't have to use your heating generally..

    Make sure they are vaccinated and have some shelter from the sun

    mine are indoor and play outdoors. Bugsy lived a year and a half outside in miserable conditions and then came to be indoors and he was fine.
