Had an old shoe box lying around, so thought I’d turn it into a hay box for the boys to root around in. Cut the lid and one side off, then took it outside, filled it with hay and placed it in their hutch.

...They ran away from it. After a few seconds, Sprout poked his head out of the bedroom area, cautiously approached the box, then just sat and stared at me. He did, eventually, start eating some of the hay, but didn’t actually venture in.

Chutney didn’t even bother. Just continued laying in one place, giving me the stink eye for daring to put this strange thing in their hutch. Well, sorry that I upset you, boys! Was just trying to provide some more enrichment!

Suspicious little creatures..... hopefully they will soon be destroying it with gusto.
