    Your white rabbit reminds me of Daisy
    That's Sylvester A little white ball of fluff about the weight of a bag of sugar with his OH Logan. The harlequins are Harley and Quinn.



    The wooden runs are up all the time as it's their main space but dismantling and assembly doesn't take that long as I'm just using the copper wire as twist ties effectively and balancing the corners against each other before tying. I've managed a few times to twist the wire so there's enough give for sort of folding one panel against each other when needing to move them as they can be moved in pairs with care but generally I untie them.

    The panels are pretty simple to construct especially if you build to fit the height of the wire and I've got some frames that need refurbishing now that I've had for 6 years. Really appreciate my Dad's diy skills especially when it comes to the door panels as it gives me more flexibility for layout.

    I purchased one the other week from https://homeandroost.co.uk/product-c...-runs/folding/ and after now checking I'm seeing they're cheaper so I am gutted.
    It's fully foldable as long as you don't nail the lid down. Secured using hook and eyes, they only give two but I'm going to buy more to prevent me from having to nail the lid down like they recommend. It uses galvanised wire and I've been able to put it up and down myself. I purchased the six foot one.
    You can pay through amazon pay which is cool and it came the same week, along with my hutch.
    Don't know if this is what you're looking for but figured I'd drop it in incase it's helpful

    Some of those metal runs have had awful reviews with rabbits getting their heads stuck in them. Not sure if it was this exact one though. Shame as it does look a really good size and weight.

    Is it easy to move? It would be for occasional use on the front lawn, supervised.

    It is helpful. Thank you. I like the look of it.

    Yeah I've found its moveable because it folds in, I put it up and down every day on my lawn. Takes a little moving back and forth to push in the back and front but it ends up compact and it's not very heavy either. I use the lid to cover the front of the hutch in the night. Adds further protection, which I'm using to stop my nosey cats, as I'm still integrating them. If you have a hutch with legs, like mine, you could pop it under there for storage too which is cool, depending on size.

    Also when I brought a hutch and the run from that company, they gave me a pack of haribo and freddo which was the most adorable thing ever, who does that haha.

    Thanks for that isabelle. I am now considering getting a local fence maker to build an aviary for my oudoor rabbits and may ask about doing a run for the indoor pair too. Will show him thos run as a template.

    Hope these guys appreciate all the effort that I am making for them
