    Agree with the others. 10% liquid is much cheaper, and much more accurate to dose.

    So tragic.
    I agree with JJ - he would be happier spending time with another rabbit (or 2?). An already neutered rabbit will be a better option for ease of bonding, which should be on neutral...

    I think it looks good.

    If it is an issue, you can easily add plastic panels round the outside at key points to provide some extra weather protection - either perspex sheeting or twinwall...

    The hutch just needs to be off the ground to keep damp out. Rabbits often like hiding underneath them, so raised about 30cm / 1' off the ground will be plenty of space, and a ramp would be ok,...

    If it is smelling, it needs cleaning out more often - spot cleaning daily is a minimum. I find that my outdoor rabbits need the trays completely emptying and disinfecting twice a week, as well as...

    A pair of neutered boys should bond ok, as long as you leave it a few weeks after neutering to allow for hormone levels to go down and you are bonding on neutral territory. I find it an easier bond...

    Could also be abscesses or cysts.
    A fine needle aspiration would be useful, then you will know what you are dealing with and take it from there.
    I hope all goes well at the vet appointment.
