Where do you buy them from and how expensive are they please?

I'm still undecided whether to move Paddy and Peaches outside or not :?

I would like to know this too - theres lots of companies that do them - ive looked on ebay they are about 22 for a 6 x 3 - but ideally I only want mine 5ft high but theres only one company that do them as far as i have found though I guess alot of companies will make them to the size you want - Im just waiting back for quotes for aviarys..

Were they originally outdoor bunnies?? Im convinced sooty and oreo will enjoy it better outside - not so sure on charlie and mittens :?

I got some from ebay - they 6ft high & I can't remember the dimensions cos I bought them last year :oops: but I remember being really pleased - they were approx 340. (for a group of 10 & 2 pairs - although I don't have enough buns now::cry:)

Remember to buy doors though - cos I forgot & couldn't get into the shed, duh!

Yeah I think they were always outdoor bunnies before I adopted them. I let them have free run of the kitchen/diner each night, but they just sit in the corner :( They're not the tidiest of buns :roll: and their wee's and poo's smell more than Jose and Rainbow's too :lol:

Paddy woke me up at 3am this morning - digging in his litter tray and ripping the newspaper at the bottom to shreds! He digs in it quite a lot so I'd like to give him a dig box, but i cant do that indoors because of the mess. Whereas if they're outdoors, they can make as much mess as they want! :)

I think I'd miss them outside though :( especially in the winter as I wouldnt really see them that much during the week, and I wouldnt be able to sit with them much, as I dont get home till 6.15pm when it's dark :(

Yes me too - thats the only thing im not looking forward too - im going to buy lots of thermals! and try and sit out with them every day - even if its just for half an hour in the morning and half an hour at night!

I got my 6ft x 6ft aviary from this guy. He was happy to provide me with two extra roof panels instead of two of the side panels as I was attaching it to my shed. He also delivered it all the way down to me for about 50.
The only thing I would say is that you want to replace the twisty catches with a proper bolt or hasp & staple that will take a padlock to hold it secure against wild animals (or other intruders)

Sorry hun, havent been on much the last few days...

If i had them id have them as outdoor buns. Reasons being, they are messy indoors hence their nickname ;) :lol: And when they were here they used to love it in the garden :love: Especially Peaches, she used to do the most amazing binkies in the garden :)

I think they'd be fine outside :) Would you have a hutch in an aviary? Or a wendyhouse/shed attached to an aviary? Either way it'd work fine, i think they'd enjoy it :)

Plus then, Ho and Bow would have more room :) xXx
