What do you all use to line the bottom of your hutches? I usually newspaper but it seems like we're always running out ?? Any other ideas?

I use newspaper and hay on the floor, and added hay in the sleeping part for warmth.

Somepeople line their hutches with vet bed or blankets and just clean out the litter trays daily.
I wish Toffee was litter trained :(

I am in the same boat as you! I use newspaper, then wood shavings, then hay and straw. I clean them every day or two days max and at the mo I am buying papers just to put in the hutch! My rabbits are not toilet trained (the mum & dad are not to bad but still go all over the place) ... I have thought about trying to train them both to see if that makes a difference but I have no idea where to start!!

My 2 won't have anything other than a carpet tile and newspaper. If I put anything else in there, they drag it out again!!!

I know some people who tile and lino theirs.

When I set up my hutches I'm going laminate on the bottom (waterproof stuff) to stop the wee soaking in so that I can just wipe it clean and disinfect easier between buns. I will then be putting a layer of newspaper down followed by blankets.

They would all have litter trays if they are able and in the litter trays I line with 3 sheets of newspaper, megazorb and then hay :D

I use a thick layer of newspaper on the floors of my hutch and then put hay on top. My lot only ever wee in their litter tray so thats the only place I need to put woodshavings.

My neighbours all give me their old newspapers for the rabbits so I always have loads more than I need. Maybe ask friends, family & neighbours to do the same for you

Yeah thats what i do, apart from using woodshavings, i dont use them. Is it better to use them aswell? I get quite alot of papers from people at my mums work but some of them are leaving new years eve :(

Carpet tiles throughout and hay in the bed!!!!

so clean and easy maintaned

FOCUS tiles are 2:50 each and not too corrosive and are too short to nibble - the buns use a toilet so they dont dirty the tiles
