My chicken coop supplies are raided

1 Comment

The rabbit need a home and quickly so the materials i had gathered to build the chicken coop got raided
I had to use some of the timber and some of the wire, oh and the hinges i had planned to use for the door
I spent a few hours building the hutch and it seems to have worked out well, the wife is happy the kids are over the moon and the dog, well I’m not sure what is going through his head but most of all the Rabbit is loving running and jumping around and teasing the dog
here is the finished product one very happy rabbit

As mentioned the new addition (the rabbit) needs a home and has taken priority over the chicken coop !!
I headed to ebay for the rabbit hutch to save me time and effort and so we could get the rabbit into his home as soon as possible
There is many types of hutches on ebay for rabbits and other various furry creatures
I wrote down the dimensions and then tried to work out where it should go, but the decision was made it should go near where the kids play!!
And you guessed it none of the ebays hutches will fit into the area so here we go again time to build a rabbit hutch

A small fluffy project puts the chicken coop on hold for a week

No Comments

The wife and kids normally have an impact on what gets done around the house, but this week more than normal.
The family was off to pick up a family member friend from the airport and as expected the flight was delayed significantly. so instead of paying the large parking fees we decided to go to the local shopping center instead , in hindsight we should have stayed at the airport.
On entering the kids found a pet store and as always we went in to take a look at the fish, puppies and all the other cute cuddly furry critters
But this time there was a difference the rabbits attracted the kids attention and my wifes, one in particular and i thought Oh no what is going to happen here

So with some quick thinking i diverted the attention of the family from the rabbit to food court for some donughts !! but not good enough, we now have a cute pet rabbit that needs a home built.
Luckily we have owned a rabbit before we had the kids so there isn’t as much research needed to get a hutch

So out with the chicken coop plans and in with the rather urgent need to buld a rabbit hutch and fast.

We set up a temporary home in the laundry while i get into action
