    Just as a caution, you're going to want to replace the floor. Chicken wire is too thin/flexible, and won't hold up long, and will likely damage the rabbit's feet.

    It looks in the picture like the chicken wire is doubled up so it should be stronger.

    I dont see anything where the rabbit can get off the floor. I also dont see any hay which they need for roughage.

    she gets treats daily carrots, lettuce or any other organic veggie's we have. We keep the hay for the goats [​IMG]

    She doesn't need a space to get off the wire. That's how she was keep prior to buying( caged with tons of other rabbits). Mind you she also gets let out daily and played with. She rides around in the wagon with my kids who pet and love her.

    Is the bowl i use for food OK [​IMG]

    It's not my husbands first rabbit, he raised them when younger. That shot was taken before he even put the latch on. He walked away and i snapped it real fast!

    We had bunnies when I was little and they ate pelleted rabbit food and the veggies we had left over. They were very healthy without hay.
