    Finally got together a few pics of the new hutch!

    I have to say although we do really like it, both me and Sameer thought it could have been made much better! Anyways with a few home improvments we are more settled with it and have a few more plans for it when we return from holiday in 2 weeks.

    So far the only adjustments we have made is to put wood on the inside of the all the doors and sides. The wood on the inside does look a bit odd but hey safety for the buns comes first! When we return we do plan to coat the wooden planks in the weather proof stain stuff plus then we are going to have a thinner piece of wood running along side of all sides of the mesh from the inside if that makes sense. We also have nailed strong nails on the mesh giving it extra protection and have attached 2 bolts on each door.

    Also have had it spprayed with some insect repellent we found in P@H for rabbit hutches aswell as chew stop lol!

    Anyways ill stop rabbiting on and let u see some pics. Flake is enjoying a branch of an apple tree and Daisy is exploring her new tunnel!

    Enjoy!

    Feeling a bit better about leaving them although still gonna miss them lots. My neighbour has been coming over every day this last week to watch how I feed them and clean out the litter trays etc. Tomorrow he is going to to do the feeding and cleaning while I supervise lol! He also gets a few days off during the week so he said on those days he will come over for an hour or so and let them run around while he just chills with his little boy!

    Yes Frags I Think they do love it lol! They hardly like coming out of it even though I leave the door open! It could also be as the 1st time I put them in there I hung a huge parsly bell inside which they loved lol!

    I have got them plenty of treats for when im away so the neighbour can pop them into the hutch every other day!

    Im soooo excited about the holiday cant wait!!!!!!!!!

    Its from the Happy Hutch Company... but like I said... I was expecting something a but better. I dont think the quality is that great. I think with slighlty more effort it could have been a great hutch.

    I will deff let you all know about mum inlaws face ohhhhh I cant wait!
