They do love the tunnels :love:! Plus they're amazing because they allow me to move the runs all over the garden so 1) the lawn doesn't get ruined and 2) buns get a new angle of runs every week or so, so it's never the same! it's nice to be able to give them a change of scenery :love:

That's fantastic (also love the plastic box hidey hole thing!)

I wish I could do this with my run, but it's so heavy it takes two to lift anyway!

Oof yes mine are quite heavy! I'm able to drag them both but I'm under strict instructions not to, so as not to ruin the grass :oops:! The 8 x 2 run is REALLY heavy, it has like 8mm plywood as the roof :shock:! It's like bunny alcatraz :shock:

And yes they love the plastic hay box thing :D £6 and a stanley knife, and they spend so much time in it nomming and digging! It's always the simple ideas :mrgreen:!

it looks like fun and wonderful but i would worry about them bitting through the tubes and escaping or an fox/cat/dog etc getting into the tubes

Yup just with a Stanley knife ! There were a few sharper bits which I just evened out with the Stanley knife :) the actual cut sides didn't come out sharp so no sanding required :)

N&T aren't big diggers or biters , and they've been using both tubes for over 6 months with no damage to any of the tube (we've checked inside too). They're designed to be very strong and don't buckle with 2 adult men stood on them, and are very hard to cut so it'd be very hard for anything to bite through. The diameter is too small to allow them to chew from the inside of the tube and they can't access the ends because of the door design. My stepdad has lived here 26 years and never seen a fox, even if a fox wanted to get into our garden he'd find it very hard as its concrete all round the outside so he'd not be able to dig in. Even if he did he wouldn't be able to get into the setup . We have no dogs in our household and the 6 foot gate is always locked , so it's extremely unlikely that we wouldn't see / hear :) . We can see the run setup from 7 windows in the house and there's almost always someone home that checks , and also the buns get shut in the shed at night :)

Ooooo amazing I LOVE it :D my buns would love that...they have a runaround tunnel that leads to a metal run...can't have it up much this time of the year because don't trust leaving the metal run out unsupervised while I'm at work. A wooden run takes up too much space which is a no no (darn in-laws :lol:)

Gorgeous buns :love::love: any pics of inside the shed? :)

I think the runaround tubes have metal rings going down the whole length to prevent anything chewing their way through

Awh damn in-laws! Luckily my mom is very good about having a setup for the bunnies - she was quite restrictive but now she's totally fallen in love and will have anything in the garden :oops:! Could you get a folding wooden run? It's a bit more expensive but you could just slip it out the way :D?

These aren't recent pics, but this is what it's like (except the shelf is black now, as N&T decided to dig at it and ripped a big hole in the flowery tablecloth :roll:):

Their shed looks a bit empty there, usually they have a bit more!

Also, the middle run is empty because the whole point of adding that one was to discourage them from using it :lol:! We made it so they could go onto the relatively dry patio when it was really rainy but they prefer to just flop out in the long run :roll:!

Love the inside too...it looks nice and cosy with the smooth painted walls and patterned lino :) brilliant set up.

I did have a folded run but sold it...should have kept it really...not complaining though...I made a £9 profit on it after owning it for a year :lol: you've inspire to get another one though...should be able to find somewhere to put it out of the way when not in use. other trouble is that the in laws wouldn't want it on the grass and on the patio it would block access to the washing line...oh well :lol:

Do give N&T have 24/7 acesss to te whole set up?

No problem :) I would definitely recommend runaround tubes and their attachments, they're extremely strong and even a few days ago someone posted on their facebook about how theirs stood up to a fox attack http://www.facebook.com/RabbitRunaround?ref=ts

I love making a profit off random things :D If you move the run slightly every day or two, the lawn won't suffer if that's their concern? It's worked really well for us!

N&T are only allowed into the runs between 9 in the morning and 9 at night, give or take! I'm pretty sure they'd be secure in there at night but I'm not sure I'd want to risk it to be honest...I do think about it a lot though...

Oooo more than that...the grass is sacred to them...not even allowed to step on it :lol: the metal run is allowed on thegrass if its very long...providing that i brush the grass over to fluff it back up...no chance of that with my lil living lawnmowers :lol:

Yih I don't think its worth the risk in this day and age...shame though...my fuzzy fellas are quite active during the night andwouldone to run through tunnels :)
