Thanks hazy and seanmac - astroturf is an interesting idea.

One of our set ups is on the paio. We do what Bernie says - tarps on top and around 3 sides/ doesn't get wet, unless there is mega rain or snow. We use silver backed beach mats too. Keeps cold out, warmth in

Not sure what its actually made of. Some buns will eat anything and everything. Others don't. But I do know some people do use it.

We just use tarpaulins over top and sides, big underbed storage boxes for litter trays in the runs/enclosures, and piles of straw in winter for extra warmth.

We also went to carpetwright and got a pile of large carpet squares - £1 each. Great for in our outdoor encloures and indoors, and cheap to replace.

I wouldnt use too much clear tarp/plastic as it'll act like a green house even with 1 end open.

Some rabbits are fine on paving all year round and others will get sore hocks, its worth checking them at least weekly.

A good thick layer of hay is the best thing to stop sore hocks if they do look sore.

I cover half the run with normal coloured tarp and if its going to rain very heavily. I put a clear acrylic panel on top of the rest of the run.
