Oh congratulations! Faisel free ranges and I put a pile of hay on a big piece of vet bed for him. He often sleeps on the hay as well as eats it!

Before my bunny passed away I would put hay in a pile too! She loved playing in it and laying in it too! So if a pile is possible for you, I would defintely reccomend it!

Bunnies are exciting pets! Don't forget the pictures! :D

Cool. He will have hay etc for bedding plus a pile of hay. Just wondered the best way to keep hay clean. I used to have a hay cube hayrack for my old bunnies plus a metal hay rack. But just wondered if a articular hay rack was better. Thanks all :) am excited to bring him home...but need to coat the hutch etc and let it dry before i bring him home :) x

Wooden ones may get chewed so may be best to have a metal one. The one I have is a D shape with smooth edges. My bunny has empty loo roll & kitchen roll tubes stuffed with different types of hay. Helps to stop it spoiling & he enjoys going around to the different ones. He also has a hay tray to lounge & munch in. He digs out his hay rack as the bars are quite wide, stomps all over it & then won't eat it. Its good to give a variety of hays to keep them interested as it forms the bulk of their diet :)
