 This is Simon(White and Grey) and MIna(Black)'s home, I built it for about $50, Theres a binky bunny house in there too. they sleep in that haha.


This is a bit of an older pic, right now they have a memory foam mat (bathroom mat) between the hay house and the bathroom, and on the bottom its covered w a towel, they are both toilet trained so theres no mess, we save the poops for fertilizer and sell them to my mom and she loves it for her garden.

Theres a wooden stand its on i built out of spare wood, its all sealed and they do not chew on it at all, we've tried to see but they refuse it. lol.  ON the back there is a little border to put thier food and hay too. and we have a few squares left over we are trying to decide what to use them on.. Connected by Zip Ties.

The floor is wood, covered in waterproof duct tape, triple layers so its "soft ish" and its not slippery to them so its not bad really.  We also sealed the wood before taping over it (just incase theres an acciden,t nothing will retain the smell)

Ideas? Comments?  If you wanna know what i used ill post it here later if people ask. hehe.

EDIT: Oh and the tile in there, we decided to throw it in, because its naturally cooler than room temp, so if they get warm they can go chill on it, which simon does every now and then.

Are they able to stand fully on their hind legs? That's pretty important. I don't think the height of a single grid which I believe is 14 x 14 is adequate for that. I think they idea is great but I would recommend it be at least a minimum 3 grids deep as well. That's just my opinion on giving two rabbits even on the smaller side space to stretch up and stretch out. Can you reconfigure it to give them more space up and out?

Those look like the grids from Target. The of the wires spacing on some of them is to wide, which means bunnies can get their heads caught in them.

Like Sarita said, its far too short for a bunny, and really too small for 2 bunnies. One bunny needs 4x4 sq feet of living space, so 2 ideally need 8x8. So basically that needs to be twice as wide and twice as tall for enough living space for both of your sweet bunnies (along with a few hours of out of cage run time)

I also would take out the duct tape, even if they haven't chewed on it yet, theres always a possibility they will, and that can be fatal/ cause huge issues.
