      Hey guys!  I wasted my hard earned engineering degree from Berkeley by working in finance for the last 5 years.  Fortunately, it helped with this project!

      I ordered a few posters online and they came in a 1/4 inch thick cardboard packaging tube.  These are very sturdy and they are NOT toilet paper/napkin tubes.

      I sawed the tube in half and left both plastic endpieces intact.  I then cut out 2-3 notches about 1/2 way deep into the tube.  Finally, I drilled holes in the back and zip tied them to a couple long pieces of choroplast I had left over.  The choroplast provides added stability and keeps the hay from being thrown behind the cage.

      When I was done, I had the two hay “pylons” or “silos”.  They look very elegant to the eye and function very well.  You can probably buy these at UPS/FedEx/Walgreens.

      Hope that gives y’all some new ideas!

      Also, I forgot to note – I kept about 1-2 inches at the bottom. The dust/small particles collect there and I can take it out and dump it. This system prevents some of the small particles of hay and dust from your bunny’s cage, and reducing the chance of respiratory illness.
