    Hello!
    I'm looking at buying a super sweet rabbit hutch...but the person who is selling it thinks it is made with treated wood. Do you think I should take it? I mean....IDK. I don't want to risk my rabbit's health. So, what do ya'll think?
    Thanks!

    I don't have rabbits but have put chickens in rabbit hutches before. No way would I put any animal in a treated wood structure unless the treated wood was the trim or the bottom part where it touches the ground. Just weighing in.... [​IMG]

    Sunny side up :)
    Ours have treated wood on the bottom part where it touches the ground but not on the rest.
