View Full Version : Beau hates coming out of her hutch.

As you know I got beau from a lady who had over 20 bunnies. She didn't breed them as such but doesn't neuter and lets them mix.

We have a large 2 tier homemade hutch. They free range during the day so are only inside the hutch at night. (we are having our shed delivered next week).

My other 3 bunnies love playing out, but Beau will come out, sniff around then run back to her hutch. She is lovely and friendly and doesn't run off. She nudges you for head rubs.

Iv bought some toys today to try and coax her out but she is has gone back in.

Any tips anyone?

How long have you had her? :)

Try adding more cover - cardboard boxes - that sort of thing.

It might be she's still settling if you haven't had her long. Try encouraging her to eat just outside the hutch and move gradually from there.
