Spare a thought for those of us who have to tend rabbits in hutches and get soaked several times a day. I cannot wait until I get my walk in Kennel and run.

You have my sympathy .......... This is the exact reason I got OH to make me an aviary with a 'proper' roof on ..... I was sooo sick of getting soaked whilst tending to the bunnies - and I've only had them since May! I was really dreading winter!

Its sooo much easier and quicker when you can do everything without getting psss wet through!

When are you getting your new set up?

I have just got to get the space cleared and a base for it laid then I can order it, I am hoping it will not be too long.

I have 3 sheds and 2 hutch combos, and I HATE the hutches - they're a pain to clean, if the buns are being akward its a right royal pain to get them if they leg it from level to level or go to the back of the hutch (I must have short arms) and they're useless in this sort of weather as I just get soaked:roll:

Oh I hated the hutch. It was a real pain to clean and when it rained even more so so I feel for you.

So much easier indoors. ;) Even if I am planning on chucking (metaphorically of course) two of them outdoors into a shed/aviary combo next year. :lol: *shush* Don't tell them that.

:lol: I feel for ya.

I have the luxuries of Dawn indoors, then theres the others in the outhouse/shed. But hutch bunnies grrr.... I tend to shoo them into a carry case and let them run around the hallway/bathroom whilst I clean them out and catch a cold.

:D So glad we got our dog chalet. It has been a godsend and we now have a shutter on the front for a night and perspex at the bottom so they can always see out.:D

Three of mine are in a wendy house set up and the other two are indoors, but I know exactly how you feel as I was at Kirkby rescue this morning and came home absoluely soaked to the skin.

Aw, we're so mean. :lol:

:shock: blimey, 30 seconds?!

Hubby just had to get some mixed leaves out of the garage fridge, does that count as hardship? ;)

I was just thinking today how many bus wont get fed, or botherd with because their hutch is standing out in the rain, while the family is cosy in the house. It only gets worse for those "childs pets" as the weather gets colder and darker:cry:

15 seconds to the garage, 15 seconds back. :p

About 2 minutes in between where I get the garage and me covered in hay. :oops:

Its horrible to think of buns not being tended just because of the rain, I do not know how people can neglect animals and be all cosy themsleves.

This lovely wet weather I feel for the bunnies and rabbits. Mine have a run attached to the hutch 24/7 and have shower curtains and perspex covering the runs so that they can at least get outside without getting too wet.
This leaves lots of lovely wet water on the top for me to content with when feeding etc! I must find where I put my waterproof trousers:lol::lol:

It has its benefits though you can come in all soaked through, gives you an excuse to wrap yourself up in a fluffy bath robe, have a nice hot mug of tea and relax on RU for a while, (thats if you need excuses to do these things):)

I feel your pain! :cry:

I have 4 hutch and run combos, 2 playhouses, and 4 aviaries. The aviaries are the best of the bunch in the rain, but I still get soaked walking from one to the other.

It'll be even worse when the clocks go back, because I'll have to do the bunnies straight after work whatever the weather, rather than waiting to see if the rain stops
