    Default Tarpalin City

    My back garden is like tarpalin city, i have one over each guinea pig hutch and a huge one stretched across the bunnies hutches and now another one on the new bunny hutch. I did have a tent type thing covering the pigs area (suspended up in the air so you can walk under it) but it blew down in the wind and now it's gone the lounge now gets more light so not too keen to put it back up permenant.

    What do you guys use to stop the rain going in your hutches etc. I am looking at getting some clear tarps as well.

    Same as you...tarpaulins on each hutch weighed down with small patio slabs. It looks like a rabbit shanty town at the moment

    I used to use clear tarp, but I found it gets too hot when the sun is shining, so you have to get up really early to uncover the hutches...otherwise the bunnies bake

    I've got a Scratch and Newton hutch hugger on Tinkerbell's hutch with a cheepo tarpaulin over the run.

    The hutch huggers only look flimsy but they are totally 100% waterproof. Someone on Ebay does the same kind of thing but cheaper. Don't know how good they are though.
