There are a couple of double 5 footers on this website:

It's a link from the RSPCA walsall website

Or this one: (It's 260 though :shock: )

Is space the reason why you want a 5ft double instead of a 6ft double?

This one looks good and it's a double 6ft one though:

the roof is awful on that- it will need a bit of strengthening!

I 110% do NOT recommend the P@H hutch - I bought the old Thistle Hall version maybe a year ago and it's disintrigrated something awful. I'm off out on pay day to get Marge and Barley a new hutch as the floor is being held up from underneath with bricks. :shock:

I also have the newer version (is it called Primrose Cottage now?!) which is even worse quality than the old one. No doubt I'll be buying new hutch number two on my next payday again - I've had this one for maybe six months. They are really not weather resistant. :roll:

Had one of these too - they're made out of incredibly soft wood so rot and get chewed quickly. The top area is pretty small. Also, some predatory type creature pulled the entire wire panel off of the end of mine and took my poor Mulberry away. :cry: (do not be fooled by the 'predator proof wire' sticker!). I have real issues with anything made with this kind of wire now which is a real pain because it seems like everything is built with it these days.

I love these hutches and they are a good price. Lots of sizes too. My 6ft double only cost me 107 on ebay :)

I am so confused. Why are people recommending shopping at P@H for hutches (which are too small by the way but that's another issue) when we are trying to hit them where it hurts i.e. their pockets with the campaign to get them to withdraw the horrendous Easter offer :?

I really wasnt recommending them. Sorry if it looked like i was! I was looking at hutch ideas and someone mentioned a p@h one but i couldnt find it - only the two i posted about - which didnt seem suitable anyway and i hadnt converted the sizeseither so didnt realise how small they are.

I for one am ef supporting the p@h boycott!

:wave: posting any link of their products can be seen as an endorsement for them so let's ignore their stuff and promote the good guys ;)

I think my wording on P@H hutches was "I 110% do NOT recommend them" :wave:

Nope, I don't either... I've spent the the last few weeks repairing nearly all my PAH hutches. 2 are only 6 months old and they are just falling to pieces, the roofs are horrendous, feel like they are made of paper!!

Ebay usually has some good hutch bargains?

Good point. I was trying to find the one that someone else pointed out - it's been referred to a couple of times but i cant find it. Anyway - other companies seem to have better solutions anyway! :thumb:

The p@h ones even *look* a poor quality - it's obvious from this site that they are. Personally, i'd rather see before i buy but not sure where to go - the only other place i know is a local pet shop which i'm boycotting because they sell animals too and they arent kept in nice conditions and sold with tiny weeny homes.

I've heard some garden centres sell them - it might be a good idea to go trawling them?
