    So, my colony is currently a dog run from the previous owners of the house. It's HUGE and it makes me very happy. But for the moment the rabbits are all locked into their cages at night until I get up in the morning, and there's a piece of plywood I put over the top if I think it might rain. I really need to make them a hutch - somewhere predator-proof I can lock them up at night. But I feel like most of the hutches I see aren't really made for colony rabbits. I'm interested to see what other colony raisers use for weather-proof predator-proof housing. I currently have 1 pregnant doe, 3 8 week girls, and a blind 4 month old girl (same size as the others) who all get along great, and an adult buck in a separate large space of his own.

    Does the colony have a roof over it? If not then you should get one. If the colony is otherwise predator proof then once you get the roof then you can get rid of the cages and let them build there own warren.
