I am new to caring for rabbits and have just purchased the Eglu go.  I have two baby mini lops who I have been putting in the Eglu hutch at night as I am anxious about leaving them out In case they should be frightened by predictors.I have just watched a YouTube video saying it’s not suitable for this.    Should I be shutting them in or can I leave them out in the run and if so what happens when the weather gets colder?  Should I shut them in then? ,

OK, so rabbits are diurnal, which means that they are most active in the evening, early night, a bit through the night, and then again early morning. Hence, they need to have access to their run at these times. Shutting them in at night isn't a good idea, and they may well destroy their housing.

I had 2 rabbits in a classic, converted for them, and that was perfect. I can't comment on the Go though.

Thank you for your reply, how did you have it converted?  My concern is the winter time when it is cold. How did you keep them warm?

There was a converter kit manufactured by Omlet.

No real need to worry about keeping them warm - they grow thick undercoats and are used to being outdoors. Just make sure that the run has a clear waterproof cover so that it doesn't get muddy.
