Hi, does anyone fancy posting some pic of their hutches/runs to give me some idea of how much straw etc are in their at this time of year? Also to see what ideas I can use to keep my little family entertained.

Thanks in advance

:wave: Hello again Jennie

You can get some ideas of toys from the piccies I posted for you yesterday, as for how much straw, these are the latest pics of my buns in their cage but aren't that clear. I put a lot more straw on the cage floor in winter (approx 5 inches thick) and always put rubber matting and carpets on the concrete under the cage to stop the cold getting to their feet (gosh :oops: its only when you write it down that you realise how spoilt your buns are!):

I fill my shelter box up to the top with straw so they can burrow in there on windy days, and the hutch has about two-three inches of straw and hay. It should be more but I couldn't afford it and they have a snugglesafe in there. We also insulate the hutch well and it's in a sheltered corner of the garden. This is the size of the shelter:

With a VERY big bunny in there. :lol:

and a picture of a toy I got from my local pet shop. Can get it from bunny basics though.

and a layout of the run they are in at the mo. It's 5ft by 5ft.

Here's some photos of the inside of Barley's shed! I divided the back bit off so as to provide a snuggly area that I could fill with hay without making too much mess!

That looks great thanks, may need to up my straw a bit although already using the neighbours recycling bin as well as mine. Goodness knows what I would do with it them as the tip refuses to take anything pet related which I find very odd. Thats watford council for you though!
