Flynn has a new home!

From a sad 24"x24"x18" cage, to a new 2'x6' X-pen.  The floor is vinyl on top of plywood, with wood on the edges to keep the pen from moving (hubby will be attaching the other side panel when he gets home from work).  I'm so glad I got suggestions on here so we can give Flynn a more comfortable home.

My question is, do I need anything else in here? 

I have a litter box with paper litter and hay on the far end, a plastic shelf thing turned upside-down so he has a place to hide, his food and water, and a soft pet bed.  He seems to really like the hideaway, so I will probably invest in a nicer/better one soon.  I think the hideaway is too low to put anything comfortable inside for him to lay on, any suggestions there?  He tried out the pet bed, dug around on a bit then jumped off.  I'm not sure if that will stay or not.  I'm going to give him an old oatmeal container tube to play in, but do I need anything else?

That's a great setup. He's got lots of running room.

I use cardboard boxes for hideaways. I just cut a door and a small window and my bunnies use these as their hideout and sleeping area. They also enjoy doing construction work on the boxes. Make sure to keep an eye that he's not chewing the pet bed because ingested material can cause a blockage. Some buns will chew blankets/beds, other won't.

You've got all the basics. You could throw in some small toys for him to play with, if you like. My buns like things that make noise like baby rattles or plastic keys. Chewing toys are usually a big hit (willow balls, apple twigs, etc).

That looks great. If you find that your bun is a climber there are several different things you can do to satisfy that behavior with him. Here's a link to what one of the members built to give her bun a hidey area and a place to jump on.

A hay rack?
