I'm looking to purchase a bunny hutch or condo for my two dwarf buns.They are indoor buns so I'm not worried about the wood of the structure holding up to the weather, more so for something they will enjoy and will look nice in my home. I'm also open to suggestions. My price range is up to $250.
Here are the two that I'm currently trying to decide upon:
What do you guys think?
Then I would suggest something more along this line:
I have a 3 story one for one of my rabbits - 48 inch - you can start with a 2 story and add on if you like. I've had mine for about 10 years and this company really knows rabbits - yes the shipping is expensive but it's easy to clean, easy to assemble, easy to move around. The owner is also a manger for the Indiana House Rabbit Society so she knows her stuff and it's a family run business.
I've seen the first one you linked to in person on display at a farm/feed supply chain locally and I wasn't impressed with the sturdiness of it for the price. The wire seemed kind of flimsy and the plastic tray is thinner than I expected, I was afraid it would break or warp. There's a wire grate over it as the flooring that I would have taken out, and then I wasn't confident that the pan would hold up to being jumped on by my Holland Lop, who is a little over 4 lbs. Also, the interior looked very difficult to clean. I looked at the Leith cage, and really wanted to go that route, but didn't have the funds, so I ultimately made my own C&C cage with wooden levels covered with linoleum. My plan was adapted from the Leith 2-story cage actually. It only cost me about $100 total and it has casters and has been working out really well. I see this is from the beginning of November, and you've probably already decided on and purchased something, but I thought others reading may find this helpful.
