    50's isn't cold for a rabbit. As long as has shelter from the wind, food and water, she should be fine.

    At six weeks, they can survive dips to below freezing. When it gets around freezing, I would to give a rabbit at any age a nesting box with hay or straw, although I use warming pads mostly now.
