If you could buy a second hand one then yes, taking the hutch 'off the market' would be a good thing. Buying it new though would support the manufacturers of bad hutches :?

If it's for indoors you could knock together something simple using cheap wood.

no...about half an hour at the most :) and im sure thats partly because i spend alot of time talking to the bunnies :lol:

I thought about doing this too - they are using their small house though at the moment so am leaving it.

If you do buy a new one you could always put a note on it / email the seller to explain you're buying purely as a hideaway for a shed.

:wave: You could also use a cupboard / sideboard ...one with or without shelves & remove the doors...just make sure the wood is not treated in case they chew it loads...or a storage box and cut some holes in it for entrances/exits...and of course make sure the edges are not sharp!:D

I am so jealpus of people with house bunnies, if I had the space I would so so so bring them in, With me being at work durng the day and now dark at night, I hardy get to see them, whereas house bunnies are like cats :(
