Do you mean let him stay out all night in the run or move him into a hutch for the warmer months? I wouldn't leave a bun outside in a run all night.

I would put him outside during the day regularly and then move him outside permanently. Once he's outside permanently though I would keep him outdoors every night. If you keep changing it won't do him any good.

You can buy metal cornering in places like B&Q and Wickes. Drill a couple of holes in each end and then nail it to the corners of the run.

You could also provide a lot of wood he can chew, like apple sticks or bark.

Its the same with my lot, they would rather eat the hutch etc then eat the other stuff I put in for them :roll:

I feel like a bad bunny mummy now, my rabbits have always been outside, come rain or shine (or snow!) :shock:
They have a very large hutch with a run attached to it and I leave them to it!! If I, or my husband is at home they are running freely around the garden but at night, when we go to bed, I put them back in the run and they choose if they want to sit in the run or the hutch! Most of the time they choose to sit outside in the run (which has a cover over half of it to protect from rain) no matter what the weather is doing. Obviously if its really raining, they take refuse in the hutch but the cold doent seem to bother them at... in fact, they push all the hay and straw I put in the hutch out and prefer it sit in a bare box (apart from their litter tray)!!! My rabbits must be a bit mad! :)
