    Outside, always outside. They are so much happier. I feel really guilty when any of ours have to come inside for any reason.

    We have lots of blind rabbits because we have lots of old rabbits. It is very common and doesn't pose much of a problem for them. We have one old fellow who has been here for eleven years and can't...

    Not at all. We had a lot of unvaccinated rabbits here in 2010 when we lost 5 rabbits to vhd. We immediately vaccinated all of them and no more got it, although five did succumb to the effects of...

    The figure of 80% came from a very limited number (twelve I think) of related laboratory rabbits and it is very dubious whether it could be duplicated in rabbits living a good life. Given the impact...

    The other two trustees, Jennifer and Caroline, are brilliant handy women and have dealt with several of these leylandii when they have fallen before so I am sure they can deal with the top bit, and...

    Nobun was hurt but three pairs have had their runs wrecked and have had to move. Hopefully we can get them sorted quickly.

    The feed shed roof is shredded too.

    Our older rabbits love it outside. It would be completely unfair to move them inside. I even feel guilty if I have to keep any of them in a stable temporarily. I am sure the natural environment...

    I hate to spoil your thought but fenugreek crunchies are bad for rabbits as they are mostly corn. I bin them along with most treats we are given. Believe me money or a grocery voucher is best and...

    It was really cold cleaning them out today, lots of bowls had ice in them, but it was not as bad as a few years ago. Chipping frozen rabbit wee out of a hutch is not fun!! I really hope it doesn't...
