    i have my poor little chabos stuck in a chinchilla cage at the moment as i still have nowhere for them outside

    have just seen this rabbit villa for sale...would this be big enough for the japanese bantams?? (theres 6 of them)

    the size is 204cm x 45cm x 85cm ....? would they be able to climb the ladders with their short stumpy legs?

    Bantams can fly pretty well, so they may still be able to take a running jump to the roost.

    sorry, I never learned the metric system. But the photo makes it look like there is room. Would you also be letting them free range at some point?

    To be honest and being the cheap skate I am I'd be building something a little bigger for alot cheaper. Those chabos can fly really good! My little japanese hen flew to the roof of my 2 story house from the ground and had flown from the front yard all the way to the backyard (1 acre) without hitting the ground once. Outdoor dog kennels are great for runs then just add a dog house inside for them to sleep in. It gives them the height to fly within their pen. I keep 14 seramas in a 4ft by 6ft coop with an attatched dog kennel run that is about 6ft wide by 10 ft long. They love it!
