Hi,

I need a new hutch for my 2 bunnie. Due to garden restrictions, it must be single storey. I have a large run and they get free reign of the garden when feasible. Anyone have any hutch recommendations?

Just as big and as well insulated as you can find. Get a cover as well. I'm not great on outdoor bun homes as mine's an indoor bun, but there are a lot of smaller companies out there that make them. Have you tried a local carpenter?

<<Not a bunny person>>

but, YY I'd look for a local carpenter to make one.
Advantages are, they can do alot of the assembly in situ to save you having to transport a heavy cage.
You can be specific about the size you want and the materials, especially fastening/locks and the wire mesh. Some of the ones I've seen as really feeble.

DD can be embarassingly judgey "That's not even big enough for my boars let alone a rabbit, You won't manage two hops in there. And LOOK at that mesh. A fox would be in there in minutes"

(She's 11yo, she'll get worse)

They can advice you on what petsafe treatments for the wood too,

The Welfare Hutch company have a good reputation and their pricing is good.

Rye dale have an excellent reputation for good quality but are more pricey:

Generally, Wendy house with attached runs or sheds work out cheaper and will be larger, but it depends if you can accommodate one. I have one Wendy house/run set up and one dog kennel/run set up.

I find the Rabbit Hutch Warehouse excellent quality and very helpful and friendly, they do charge more for delivery depending on your distance from Bolton where they are based, but worth it in my opinion. www.rabbithutchwarehouse.co.uk/

I'm afraid I can't remember the seller's name, but there is a guy on Ebay who makes massive, very cheap hutches.

If it would be feasible, a shed with attached run (ie bolted onto the side and accessed via a cat flap) is a very good option. Sturdy, warmer and closer to the 36sq foot requirement.

Hi. I can recommend Ryedale Pet Homes even though they cost more than most. By the way I notice their website has moved from rehutches to www.ryedalepethomes.co.uk
