View Full Version : Is this run setup ok?

I have two 18-week old rexes. I put them out into their 5ft x 5ft x 2ft run every day, for 8 hours. Is this good or bad? I put vetbed on top of their house/box, because they love to sit up there and if it's chilly, the vetbed will help to keep them warm. Is this a good idea? The grass underfoot is quite bad. I put about 3-4 handfuls of hay down every day and they eat all that in the 8 hours, they eat less grass now than in the summer. Is this ok? They have a box to sit in, a house/box for them to use for shelter and a water bottle too. Is this all ok? They go out even when it's raining. It has a modified roof over two thirds of the roof now, so there is only one third open to rain, so they can easily choose to sit out in the rain so stay undercover. Is this good?
