    What about the cold? We are having teams between -25 to about 10 degrees this week. Anything I should think about for that situation?

    That sounds like a really nice idea.

    Shelter from wind - especially wind coming up from the under the cage. They like to burrow, so fill a box with hay. Lunch, burrowing, insulation.

    I had rabbits in my barn in community pens that were 4' x 6'. 3 - 4 does could live in them peacefully, if they had plenty of boxes and shelves and spaces to get away. I filled them with hay twice the height of the tallest rabbit. They burrowed into the hay. That was my favorite part about community pens. I don't have rabbits anymore. I miss them - but not in winter!

    Thank you. I’ve already given them lots of burrowing material, lunch, and insulation.
