    sounds like a good price

    How easy is it to get the buns in and out safely without escapes? Is shade possible from all sun-angles? Do you need to make a base to stop them digging out or anything else digging in? Is the...

    sad outcome

    I feel guilty that it has taken me so long to come back online to report, after several of you were kind enough to offer helpful thoughts and ideas.

    So many hiding places

    A wildie, yes.

    It's a big room with so many places to hide - I can't see where it has snuck itself in. Under a wardrobe? Behind the drawer units? I can't see how I can possibly search it out -...

    accidental bunny acquisition

    I seem to have a new young bun. It was dropped in my bedroom doorway by the cat. It dashed in and ran for cover. I have not seen it since! I have peered behind things and under things to no...

    beware plastic

    If you keep it in a spacious open box in a well-aired dry space it is less likely to go off on you. Plastic sacks and plastic crates are best avoided. We use a giant cardboard box for our bale.

    avoiding drastic change

    More than anything, I try to avoid drastic change, because from what I read generally and on here, sudden change causes many problems. Ours free-range daily, and get a good supply of grass all year...

    piggies are often shy

    It takes time and patience, and some piggies will always be shy. Ramps and things take piggies longer to adapt to, as well. They may well go up when they are sure no-one is around. It might help...

    we have one

    We have a weeping pussy willow in a pot in the rabbit garden, and they love it! Buffy climbs into the pot in order to gnaw the stems off as high as possible. I don't take anything off - they get...

    Marble was VERY dominant, but when she bonded with Bunster she calmed down a lot. She was still dominant, but she seemed also to learn that in his calm way, Bunster was wiser, and she stopped...

    why not?

    We used one successfully for a long time with our first bun in our last garden where there was no safe free-range space despite it being a big garden. We were advised to have the harness fairly...

    How Horrible For You

    I cannot imagine such a thing. We have 2 rabbits and 2 guinea-pigs in a similar wall-backed set-up. Smells are minimal an grass-based. Rats, ferrets and others are much pongier. Hens can be too,...

    yes

    Male female bonds have always worked well for us, and it is lovely to see the joy that a partner brings to a singleton bun.

    Usually it is considered best to introduce a female that has already...

    Ask horsey people what farms they use. I don't know Lincs, but there are lots around here. We pay 3.50 usually, and we store the bale in a giant cardboard box in a dry outhouse - we find cardboard...

    We successfully bonded our first (extremely feisty) unspayed female with a younger friendlier neutered male rescue. We didn't know enough to be wary in those days. It went very well and they became...

    well done

    There are worse hutches. Getting their health back is the priority - when they are a better weight they will cope with a house-move no problem - esp if you can give them some free-range time in the...
