    I couldn't imagine putting my big frenchie, Storm, in that horrid prison and here's me wondering if my whole bedroom is big enough for him

    To be honest, seeing the size of frenchies, I couldnt imagine putting them in a cage full stop ...... but that is just my opinion :wink:

    heres the reply

    "I have kept my french lop doe in this hutch for the last two years. She comes out daily for her exercise in the garden and this size of hutch is perfectly adequate for a rabbit of her size!!Thanks for your opinion but it is a matter of opinion!!"

    somehow i disagree!!!!!! and i wonder how long she got in the garden

    While I understand that hutch is too small for a frenchie, I've seen many people wedge their rabbits into indoor cages which I would only house my rats in (100 or 120cm for a rabbit?). I think that's just as big a problem.

    I agree - it's not just limited to Frenchies that this undersized housing happens with.
    I kept my first bun in one of these indoor cages but he's only a Nethie and was out pretty much all day, as he's incisorless so a perfect housebun (other than the lack of littertraining but that just meant extra washing lol). I wouldn't even house a Nethie in one now but they're OK if used basically as a big litter tray/something to hang the bottle in and bun has permanent access to a bigger area, in my opinion.
