Well it arrived today and it is fantastic:D custom made to fit my hutch, didn't take them long to make either. Will get some photos of it asap and post them. I would highly reccommend this bloke if anyone else is interested in getting a cover themselves, his prices are really reasonable and delivery was pretty good too.

Ooh yes please I'd be interested.:D All the outdoor buns are in sheds but my 'emergency' hutches have no covers ( other than make shift stuff) so it would be nice to have a purpose built cover 'just in case' I may need to use one.

Yes it was that guy from ebay.. dealt with him direct though. I'll get a pic of it tommorrow (if I can get the camera working:roll: )

I paid 72.95 (including p&p) for it which for a double thermal hutch cover I thought was great. The Scratch & Newton one of a similar size would have been over 150!! :shock:

Thanks for recommending him :D It would be so much easier to buy a cover for Buu and Beau's new hutch. It was a bit of a nightmare trying to make Trip and Scarletts :lol:

P&P might be a bit more to you though due to where you live :(

It probably will but im having a hutch delivered so might as well get a cover for it at the same time :shock: :lol:

This is what I made for Trip and Scarlett's hutch and it is good for keeping them dry but I have trouble lifting it off by myself and it doesnt actually cover the whole run. And my bunnies choose to sit right where they will get wet when its raining :roll: :lol:

Buu and Beau are having a double storey hutch so it would probably be a lot easier to have a cover that just fits over it properly :D x

To this .. posh cover:D

The sides and the back are full length top to bottom and the front come to the top of the run. It has a clear daytime cover and a night cover for the front, both of which have ventalation holes. It is all insulated with the silver stuff on the inside and velcros together down the sides and accross the front.

For the time being I will stick to the clear plastic cover for the run though

we use tarpauling which we cut to fit, and then used them little popper hings to stick it to the sides at night, and uses greens oft netting stuff (hard 2 explain its 4 gardening) undeneath as insulation, and it was stuff we already owned :D:D

I'm really pleased with it.. looks so much nicer than a pile of bubble wrap at the end of the garden:)
