    Hi

    I am looking after my siblings rabbits whilst they are way.

    They are used to getting lots of attention throughout the day however I am at work in the day and often out in the evenings so they are getting less attention.

    I am not able to put them in their run because they are rabbits that like to escape

    When I go to feed them they are lunging at me or running for the door, they often pull their bowls away from me.

    How can I feed them? Stop them feeling so threatened?

    Can you scatter feed them further inside away from the door? When I need to shut the door in my guy's shed, I break up a few of their favourite treats and scatter them inside the shed away from the door. They're kept busy and don't even notice!

    If you want to put them in the run without them escaping staple gun a layer of chicken wire to the base of the run
