sorry yet another hutch post :lol:

i was planning on getting the massive happy hutch but am very put off by the fact its plywood and so is me mum (shes going halfs with me:) )
so was looking online and think this hutch is very well made and i like it but i was just wondering what the thoughts were on it being suitable for 2 rabbits?
i did phone to see if they could make a 5ft version but sadly the guy who made them passed away so they are currently trying to find someone new but could be upto a month or more!

anyways here is the hutch and i like the fact its made of quality stuff

only for a small rabbit- 4x2x2 is good for a little bun with access to the bottom part at least 8 hours a day

I imagine happy hutch would be able to do something for you. They did one for me in a size that wasn't listed on their website - didn't take long to arrive either.

i have to say i was concerned by the ply they use. i have a ply exterior on my hutch, but its 12mm (twice as thick as the happy hutch) and is marine ply so wears well, and its double thickness on the doors. i was also concerned by how thin the structural wood is, i know mines a bit ott with 4"x2"!!! its difficult to find good quality hutches anywhere, let alone for a sensible price.

You could always screw another layer of wood on the Happy Hutch. The size of the combo is unbeatable, I am quite happy with it. The run is 2 ft tall, so big binkies are possible. :D

6 x 2 x 2 hutch on 6 x 4 x 22" run cost 195.00 inc del.
remember tho its only half of that hutch - one pictured is a double.


he also does two other big sizes

5 x 2 x 2 hutch on 5 x 4 x 22" run cost 165.00 inc del. (6 x 5 run £180.00)

i expect alot of that is for the delivery charge as it is courier.

Thats an excellent price :D I paid a fortune for a double 6ft x 2ft x 2ft with a connecting 6 x 5 run. Its great but wasnt reasonable.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Well, I'm one to talk .... I guess that 3 hutchs, a run, a crate and a pen were a little excessive when I had only one bunny :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol: Xx
