    I have a barn rabbit(pics to come!!!!!!!!!) and its been in the 80s and 90s. Are barn dosen't stay to much cooler then outside. But how can I keep her cool when it gets this hot? I put frozen water bottles in her hutch but she only lays on them if I put them next to her. What temp. is to hot for rabbits....like is 80s okay(I know that is hot but is it to hot)?

    Fans, fans, fans .. and they can take a lot of wind.

    We get to 100 pretty regular in July and August .. some like the frozen bottles .. but mostly we just put fans on them ...
