hello, I've had my 2 girls just over a year ago now, the plan was to house them outdoors come the April time (last year, which was the advice I was given to do it that around that time) however, I felt it was still very cold and therefore decided to wait till June time, again it did not happen! I do love them indoors and before I knew it it summer was over (if you could call it a summer :))) and it was cold again and therefore they were indoors all year.

I have been looking at outdoor hutches for this year i have a large grass area and could have a huge outdoor area for them. I would be grateful for some advice as how to make the move to outdoors safely for them. Do you still bring them back indoors in an evenings? I would still be able to set up the indoor run and have them play indoors some evenings?

thanks

I am sure others on here will have better advice on moving your girls outside than I do. It is hard to predict a time to put piggies outside in this country as when we think the weather is changing it goes cold again. I keep my piggies indoors all year round but I have a outdoor run for them so in late spring/summer time they spend most of the day in the run (weather permitting) and then I bring them back into their cages on a night. It will be my boys first summer outside this year so my plan is April time if the weather is nice is to put the cages outside on nice days for a few hours (to get some fresh air) till the time comes the ground is warm enough for them to go on the grass and then I will put them in their runs. I do have indoor runs for the rest of the time for execise which they spend alot of the time in when the weather is horrible.
