    my bantams are currently living in a chinchilla cage as the house i had order has not come, its apparantly out of stock and wont be available for another month(!)

    so ive found this rabbit villa....will it be big enough for 6 chabos???? its that little bit smaller than the other i was going to get..so unsure if it will be good enough?

    Looks better to me than a cage, but I'd also get the one you ordered.

    Will they spend all their time in their house, or let out to range? I'm not sure any of them are large enough for 6 birds to live in full time.

    Quote:I also like this style, and have a couple of them by other vendors, very similar to this. They are smaller than you think they are, but they're really useful for grow out coops. Or for a first coop. You keep the birds in the whole thing for a couple of weeks or so, then let them out to free range. But by then they KNOW that's their home, where they are safe at night, and they'll "come home" to it.

    Also, if you have to go away for a day or two, you can secure everybody back into it for that short couple of days.

    These are good coops for bantams.
