        At least she’s being enriched by what she has, but I can’t keep hay feeders around this thing!

        Jumping Jack is driving me crazy. There’s always a mess to clean up with her hay. She has a small wire feeder that I bought from a feed store (and I mean small. It needs to be refilled at least twice daily), and I just got her a willow box (which was left empty for a few minutes and destroyed). I also sprinkle some shorter hay over her litter once it gets changed

        But I need something else. What do y’all do for hay feeders? I need something fairly cheap, with a large capacity and high durability

        Thank you all!

          Cardboard box with holes cut in it?

              I’ve tried that, but she destroys them in a heartbeat

              I opt for a large, spacious litterbox and putting the hay directly in there so the “mess” is contained and the hay is easily accessible for foraging. Some rabbit’s eating ‘styles’ just aren’t compatible with hay feeders. A picture of your set-up could be helpful for brainstorming ideas as well! We are having some issues with picture uploads currently, so you can upload your photo to a website and link it here, if you cannot get the Media to work.

                  I’ve tried that, but she likes to go in the back, where the hay would be. If I put it closer to the front, she likes to dig in it and would mess that up royally

                  I use a toilet paper roll holder turned on it’s side and clipped to the pen walls. I got mine at Marshalls, they usually have an assortment of random ones so you should be able to find one that would work!

                      That’s a good idea! I’m getting rid of the pen soon and giving Jumping Jack free range of my room, and won’t have panels, would I be able to mount this elsewhere?

                        I imagine you could find somewhere to mount it… maybe you could leave a corner of a few panels just near the litter box so you have something to attach it to? Or attach something to the wall?

                          That could work nicely, thanks!
