    Just wondered what you all thought of them? I'm wondering wether to have them put on my website or not? Would they appeal to many do you think? Pets at home have them in but are quite pricey.

    Any feedback welcome:)

    I think they would appeal to younger people who have rabbits/guinea pigs :)
    They look great :)

    I saw them in pets at home the other day. Not sure if I agree with them because kids were asking if they were allowed a rabbit/guinea pig because they liked the hutches. Maybe on a website it would be fine selling them but in a shop like pets at home it will only encourage them to get in poorly bred animals because the kids like the hutches so get an animal from the store then grow bored of the animal. Just my opinion :) Plus I don't like my animals outside so I don't feel the need for a hutch either :)

    I think they are disgusting.

    They translate to 3.93 ft long, 1.7ft wide and 3.55ft tall- as this is for two levels, it is 1.72 ft each level.

    I would not even rehome a pair of guinea pigs to anything less than 4ft x 2ft.

    The minimum size for 2 rabbits (as rabbits are very social animals and should be in at least pairs) is a 6ft x 2ft x 2ft with a 6ft x 4ft x 2ft run.

    I think selling hutches like these are only encouraging impulse buying, by encouraging children to get them.

    Which in turn, eventually means more rabbits in rescues when children tire of them :(

    I totally agree. They are far too small and encouraging children to want a pet just to have something to put in a pretty hutch that they will soon get fed up with.
