    Default I'd like a bigger run...

    Now that we've got a garden I'd like to get a bigger run for my 2. At the moment I've got 2 attached together (Trixie rectangular 216 x 116 x 65 cm and the 8 sided, 8 Elements, each 80 x 75 cm)

    What do you guys think of these? 8ft x 8ftx 26ins high fold up pen 199.00 or 8ft x 6ft x 2ft2" high fold up pen 129.00

    Looks like chicken wire which isn't sturdy enough to keep rabbits in and foxes out.

    Lucky buns getting a bigger run

    Just looking at that pic, it looks a bit like the mesh is chicken wire rather than weld mesh, in which case it is a bit risky as foxes can bite through that stuff I believe.

    I have bought a run from this guy on Facebook, which although I haven't constructed it yet, it looks good, and was excellent value. I told him the size I wanted and the extras (extra doors etc) and he built it for me. I paid 120 for a 10 x 4 x 2 run (inc delivery) . I think there are a number of people on ebay who build custom runs too

    Always believe you can change the world even if its only a tiny bit, because every tiny bit needed someone who changed it. >

    Oh thanks, mine are indoor buns with outdoor supervision only BUT I suppose it would be better to get sturdier stuff, just in case.

    Yeah Twycross isn't far. I've only been here a month, it's all still a bit strange.
