Field of Greens

If you build it, they will nom...
(Not a movie reference, unless you want it to be.)

Come on in - the hay is fine!
One idea to help meet the bunnies need to dig was suggested: a big container of just hay. I looked for a small hard plastic child's wading pool (harder to find than you'd think, especially during summer and as hot as it is here); most seem to be blow up pools. Couldn't find any sandboxes I was especially excited about either.

So the picture above is what the bunnies now have as their "hay pool". No floaties needed.

It is the bottom part of an "under-the-bed" storage container. The side is see-through and not too high, so they have no problem jumping in and out. There's room for everyone, if I don't try to climb in. It has an assortment of fresh hay in it. They seem happy to have someplace else to explore, dig and eat.

For more on this bunny care topic of chewing and digging, see:

Can you share any suggestions for things that will occupy bunny recreation time ... things that they like to chew, dig in or play with? (That they are allowed to - no comments suggesting electric cords; we all know they love those.)
