    Default Run around?

    Okay so omlet runs aren't secure... What about runaround runs? With a tube to connect to it from the hutch? Is that all predator proof? Seems worse to me but I'll be guided by you guys

    I could see they do a 4 by 8ft run on their website which would be okay, I'd prefer bigger but it'll give them enough space for now.

    For now a 16ft tunnel and a cover. I found a guy who was willing to make exactly what I wanted run wise so I'm getting two runs from him, and he's gunna cut a hole in one for the runaround tunnel door thingy to connect to, so they'll be able to go from the hutch to the run via the tunnel added some better hardware to the hutch yesterday too, so it'll be padlocked shut so nothing is getting in there.. Overkill maybe, but idc

    Sounds awesome did you go for the black tubes or the mesh tunnels? I’ve only had the black ordinary sized tubes to connect to non runaround runs before.

    My tunnels have been well quality tested by a boisterous dobermann - obviously not intentionally with risk to bunnies but I was curious to see if it was pedator proof. They have withstanded her fine. I think there was a post on here some years ago about a fox having pulled one off a shed but the door design has been re-done and upgraded multiple times since then. I'm confident they are safe, mine have acess 24/7.

    Went for the large black tube, I didn't know they did mesh tunnels! Only just found out they do hamster ones that would be amazing and a nightmare all at once I think

    That's exactly what mine will be, going from their hutch which has had a new roof put on, and the tunnel will take them to their new run which isn't a runaround one went for large size as Penelope is 4.5kg and not overweight have a tunnel that was for my mini lops years and years ago, I measured the diameter and its about the same as the run around and she just about fits through it She didn't seem to have any issues but wouldn't want it any smaller

    Ah that's good to know! I still haven't found any mesh to put on the floor of the run unfortunately nothing seems big enough or suitable. I'm not sure yet if I'll do 24/7 access, may trap them in over night, as we have foxes living in the garden
