Hay Racks, for me, are expensive at £4.99 each as i need 6 so i'm always looking for ways to keep costs down and improvise.

I found these CD Racks in Instore (old Poundstretcher) in the sale for 75p each, meaning i got 6 "hay racks" for less than the price of 1.
As my gran used to say "Poor Folk have Poor Ways"

Here's what they looked like when i bought them


After squashing the sides together


And the finished look - I screwed 2 cup hooks into the back of the hutch and just hung them on.


Angus & Fergus use 1 of theirs as a "hay tunnel" - found that out when i thought i'd "lost" Angus, i couldn't understand how he could have escaped, then my friend saw his nose poking out the end of it - bless him!
Here's one of Fergus with their "hay tunnel" behind him

Good idea Niki! I cut up some C&C cubes and folded them round but it took a while as they are tough and then I had to make sure the edges weren't sharp ;D

Great idea 8) . I got some hanging baskets from Tescos reduced to 85p for my lot, they make great hay racks ;)

I have 2 of those too, they're really good aren't they and the paper liners for them (2 for 25p) make great hidey holes ;D ;D

That's where the idea came from, when i saw them they kinda reminded me of a C&C grid :)
