Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Hi,
Welcome to JustAnswer. I am a licensed veterinarian and I'm here to help you. Sorry that you have had to wait a bit.
How big is your rabbit? Is she able to move freely in her hutch? Does she ever get to be out in your garden or yard?
Hope to hear from you soon,

I have two fully grown giants inherited from family. They don't go in the garden often as it's not secure. They move freely in the run, but the hutch they have, I feel, is not big enough. Thanks

Thank you for your response, and thank you for your question.
As long as they can stretch out as well as sleep with their legs under them, and as long as they can turn freely in their hutch, then it should be fine. It's good to hear that they also have a pretty spacious run.
I'm sorry I can't be more specific, but if you'd like to tell me the weights of your rabbits and send me the dimensions of their hutch, I could probably answer your question more specifically. Or. . .you could send me a picture if you'd like.
Thanks,
