Hi all! 

I am thinking of investing in a walk in omlet run with base for my bunnies so they can have plenty of space to play, but I am worried that eventually the base will clog up with droppings. How do you deal with that. Or do bunnies usually mess in their ‘bedroom’ as they do now? Thanks

You can housetrain bunnies, although not all bunnies are very good at it. But providing a large low box with straw will often work. Consider placing the run on paving slabs for easier cleaning.

I agree

We had bunnies many years ago, and they always used their litter tray for messing in. Cleaning them out was just so easy.

I would put it on slabs too.

As a newbie to keeping rabbits I , personally don’t like the Omlet run for rabbits. My daughter has standard size attached to Omlet classic or whatever rabbit one is called and I don’t like that they are on the mesh run on the base. I would be concerned re injury to feet and I think it is too small.

I agree about the size, but most open runs have a mesh base. Otherwise they dig for China.

I had a rabbit eglu for a while, but found it unsuitable for their diurnal habits, so reverted to using the massive duplex wooden hutch for their main housing and just used the eglu and run for the summer daytime.
