    Default Movable rabbit runs

    I like the fold away aspect of this run, good for getting the lawn fully grazed! Has anyone bought from this company? What did you think of the build quality?

    eta just looked at the measurements, only a tiny bit bigger than my syrian hamsters cage!!!!!!

    Any ideas for an easy to move good sized run?

    Would you have anyone to help move the run at all?

    Just wondering if a normal one with some easy grab handles on the sides would work? (Like ones that stick out - kinda like on the beds you see in Roman films with the woman being carried around.)
    They could be hinged or similar so they're down when not in use?

    Foldaway runs have lots of weak points which make it easy for predators to gain access.

    No. I live with my elderly Mother who is unable to walk, let alone move rabbit runs!

    I guess I will have to go with the metal runs and only let them out under my supervision. It is going to be in the front garden so there is very unlikely to be any preddies around.

    What about Runaround or even aviary panels made by yourself/local carpenter/Manor Pets/Boyles Pets to whatever specs you need? My wooden runs are made of roofing lathes in the style of aviary panels with wire to fasten the corners and aren't that hard to move around or disassemble.

    It's worth noting that MPH do not make foldable runs at all x

    That sounds interesting. Any pics?

    It doesnt have to fold just has to be easy to move Daphne. There must be some easy simple solutions!

    Not sure if this will work but there's some pictures & video of my old setups - https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...VrXNhbei7QhrmE

    Edit: Forgot to say that the panels are tied together at the corners using lengths of copper wire a couple of mm thick at the top, bottom and middle and the panels are made to fit the height of the wire.

    Yes, I worked out that I hadn't set up a shareable link.

    You can see that my set up keeps changing; it originally started as 2 bunnies & 2 wooden runs with runaround custom connections then went to 4 bunnies with 1 wooden run and 1 runaround run each. If I get chance I'll update with how it looks now.

    Lovely set up. Does it take long to dismantle or is it up all the time?

    Your white rabbit reminds me of Daisy
