I was just wondering what people use for dig boxes in their runs, I was thinking of getting Maisy a plastic dog bed.
Also, what do you put in it? Dirt and turf out the garden, just dirt, compost? And i would assume it being out in the run I would need to make sure that end of the run is covered over or will end up muddy in the rain.
I do have grass in my garden but Maisys hutch and run are on the patio and I can't really do anything to let her have access to the grass for very long for many reasons (one of them is Red Kites swooping down), so I thought a dig box may be the best option.
Maisy Baby : ) Om nom nom
I used a mix of sand and compost when my bunnies had one. They never did use it for digging much but they did like it nonetheless, many a binky was started off in that box
Large lidded litter tray full of argos play sand and they do use it. Just used one bag of sand and they rarely kicked any out, bought an extra bag a couple of weeks ago and the whole lot has ended up on the floor. Oh well, I guess it gives them a softer floor under foot than the concrete.
This is it when new with just the one bag.
Ahh so cute! Do they end up using it as a litter tray at all?
I was about to ask the same thing if they use it as a litter tray.
Maisy may not be too bad as she is very good at using her litter tray, only time was a problem was when she stayed with my mum and she didnt use the litter tray she used her hay box instead
No they have never had a pee in it. If they ever had a poo it would only have been the odd pellet so that doesn't sound likely either
Pets at Home, two will fit in but not sure if both dig at the same time.
She is certainly enjoying that digging box
