OK for my bunny?

Is this ok for my rabbit? Im going to save up and buy this for her. I want somthing this is big enough for her, allowers her to get sun, and also allowers her to get some shade. I want to buy somthing, as i can not make things and i dont have the time or patients. and i rather have somthing nice looking rather than somthing that you can tell i made.
if you scroll down alittle it shows you all the different pics and things you can do with it. she will only be out there with superision.

I really like that hutch. I also like the fact that you can fold down the front of the run. If you want to give your rabbit more room to run, you could add a dog play pen to the front when you are outside with your rabbit, and keep her inside the hutch at night. The biggest problem with outdoor rabbits is preditors, so I hope your yard is safe from foxes etc., because I doubt if that hutch will hold up to large preditors. I keep my rabbits outside also, and if I didn't have a hutch, the hutch you picked out would be one of my first choices.

Will this be her permanent cage or just for outside?

The only thing I would think about would be the fact that it's wood. Her urine might soak into it and then it'll start to smell. Wood isn't exactly easy to clean. But it's a cute cage!

I sealed the bottom of my wood floor with a polyurethane varnish before using it. I left it alone for about two weeks and then hosed it down and the smell of the varnish went away. It is easier to clean a outdoor hutch because you can take the hose to it. Also, keep plenty of hay and sticks inside to keep the rabbit from chewing on the wood.

naw, its just for nice days. she will have a big cage in my room, and she also will be able to play in the cats room on days she cant go out. i wouldnt leave my bunny out all night, but no, we dont have wild animals really...i live on a busy intersection..but shes not staying out more that a few hours anyways.

I think it would be great then . Just make sure she doesn't try to dig out...my rabbit Elvis would . But since she'll be supervised that won't be a problem anyways.

Just remember that rabbits are very sensitive to heat. Anything above 85 degrees is taking a chance on a heat stroke. You might want to just let it have outdoor time in the spring and evenings when it gets hot. The hutch looks pretty nice.
