    If you already have a base for a shed, replacing it is easier. They demolish fairly easily, and you can get someone in to put up the new one - many suppliers offer the service, or fencing people will...

    You may be able to pick up some end of line / tatty looking herbs and fruit bushes cheaply now - the roots will be fine, and they will get a good start for next season. Most of these die back...

    Breeze blocks are cheap and not heavy. How many you need depends on the size of the hutch. Mine is 8'x4' and I was looking at around 15 breeze blocks to do 3 'walls' - one at each end and one in the...

    I agree with all the above. It is a common condition in rabbits, and often with no confirmed diagnosis. Treatment is fairly standard to deal with both EC and ear infection. So I would expect...

    I've got a similar problem - just haven't got round to sorting it out. I chose breeze blocks as they are cheap, big and light, compared to bricks. It also only needs to be 2 high, so will be more...

    At some point, they are going to meet up. It's worth considering a 3-way swap round. If it's not working, you can always stop, or find a different way to do it. Continued referred aggression is not a...

    I have found a nebuliser to be very useful before, just using sterile saline. They are easy to get hold off (Amazon, Lidl, maybe some pharmacists) and easy to use. I've got this one:...

    I would just give it more time. The babies are just that - they need to be a bit bigger and preferably neutered before you bond properly. The boy can be done fairly early, but the girl will have to...

    I would get it looked at by a vet first - there's something else going on if he's not weight bearing on that foot, and it needs looking at before it gets worse. Not weight bearing on one foot will...

    I think the usual situation would be to assume she's had no vaccinations and to start again. I would ask about neutering her while you are at the vet. Girls are very prone to uterine cancer. After...

    Sorry you are having to deal with this.
    All I can suggest is good nursing - keep him medicated, eating, and comfortable.

    I would mix the powder with some fruit puree and syringe feed it. At least you know she has had the proper dose that way.

    I would use it as bedding. You never know - putting it in a different place may make it more appealing to eat.

    I buy standard 2 string bales from local horse suppliers - so I am probably not going to be part of your customer base.
