    BUT

    The brooder is our big rabbit cage. Last year, my dad let me keep the rabbits in the house ( in another condo-ish thing we built ) But this year he is not allowing her to be kept inside EXCEPT for that rabbit cage ( we had a male rabbit who was not spayed and peed all over the walls when they were in the "condo"- we only have a girl now though) We now have a HUGE hutch outside but the nightly temps are below freezing. So what should I do? any suggestions? I've been thinking to get another heat lamp to put in the hutch, by nailing the handle thingy to the wall. That's what we did for the coop...
