Rabbit help

Hello, I'm looking after a friends rabbits this week. Two are fine with handling, the third (who I've nicknamed Kevin) is a bit less so. Does Kevin need to go in his run everyday? We were warned about him, but I feel a bit mean leaving him in the hutch all week. Any advice?

Ideally he should go in the run. If he is hard to handle could he be transported between hutch and run with a carrier?

He could be, they do have one. I thought of a towel possibly. I'll do the carrier then. Also, the floor of the hutch doesn't have much straw down, it's set on the patio with the sleeping hutch above it. Do I need to put more straw down?

I wouldn't have thought so. They need hay but straw is really just bedding
