Well Diesel is on the bottom hutch floor and everytime I open his door to give him food of a fuss he always seems to get out and try and escape. How can I stop it? :?:roll:

Does he get to go in a run during the day? If not, he is probably bored and longing for a run around.

He gets to run in the morning so I dont know, maybe I will swap him round with another bun to get him higher. Maybe he is just young and adevnturose :roll::lol:

Maybe he wants more space? a run attached to his hutch

I agree. He probably wants to run around more and from what I can remember your hutches aren't the biggest so might be an idea to sort out attached runs for them? :)

They are 6ft so how bigger do you expect them to be?? Well they go in runs in the day so I dont know what more I can do :?

The hutches themselves sound like the perfect size ;) but ideally bunnies should have access to a run at all times as well as their hutch. :)

I think it's just their curious nature though - Alfie has the run of the garden for a while every day and he spends most of it trying to get into the house - purely because he knows he's not supposed to and he sees it as a challenge. :lol:

Why not attach their runs permanently to their hutches? That way they can come and go as they please.

They are beautifully made hutches... but a couple of hours out a day is not enough for any rabbit.... even if they are in six foot (or four foot as they look) hutches.

Do you keep your bunnies to show them? :)

Please remember that Emma is only young, lets try abit of constructive posting instead of sniping. People do actually learn better that way :D

Thank You.

I agree. They're clearly not 6 foot :?

Don't really have any other advice Emma, but I do think he (and the others) need more space and more time in their runs. He's also probably a nosey bunny too :)

The size thing people get it wrong :lol::lol::lol:, I think it was because an old member use to say hers was a frenchlop and he looked like Beatrix in size and looks, so I thought they were the same :lol::lol::lol:

People want to show they're doing things right I guess and want approval. If any one has lied I'm sure it is because they are worried about getting criticized.

I would try lots of things to distract them. Min love old cerial boxes stuffed with hay and herbs, and magazines to destroy. Seems to distract them from wanting to escape. :D

Ghostie does this occasionally, sometimes if i go further into the kennel she'll make a run for it. She is being naughty as she wants some free ranging time.
He just probably is getting excited as he wants to have a wee run :)
She lives in a 12.5ftx6.5ft dog kennel do i doubt she needs more space :lol: She just loves free ranging so much, same with Emma's bun, loves his run time so tries to make a cheeky dash for it :)

Just read rest of thread :?
I must admit some hutches are smaller than others but i posted a picture of the guinea pig's enclosure and even i thought the picture didn't do it justice of it's size (6ft).
I KNOW Emma is dedicated to her buns, and she's only a juniour members and i'm sure improvements will be made when they grow bigger :)
