Creative thinking results in a great portable chicken or rabbit-hutch

I love ‘creative thinking’ in terms of coming up with clever ideas and particularly in making something out of almost nothing – or at least making something out of materials which would normally be delegated to the rubbish tip. While at a caravan park in France we saw this innovative rabbit-hutch. I’ve seen similar ideas used before. The wheels at one end enable the whole unit to be lifted by the handles at the other and wheeled to a new location. There is a netting floor which allows grass to penetrate. I think it is an ideal hutch for a bunny or two. What do you think?

Just so long as there was wiggle room for the bunnies.

It is smaller than I'd like but I've seen worse unfortunately.

@sallypup It was the 'portableness' of it that I liked.

I never had rabbits, but it sounds like a good idea.

It certainly makes for mobile rabbits but the last thing you need Down Under is mobile rabbits!

That's very true. Our rabbits are mobile enough without needing any help!

It would make it so easy to move them on to fresh pasture.

These hutches can be heavy to move but with the wheels it would be a breeze.

@JudyEv basically a wheelbarrow with a cage on top - really practical

@arthurchappell Yes, that's all it is really. So much easier to move the cage with the wheels and handles.

@judyev A useful addition for the kitchen garden so that you don't have to go too far for fresh meat for bunny pie .

True - and if you sat it on the vegie patch, the inmates could fertilise the area as they went along.

@JudyEv My Parisian brother grows snails on a bucket beside his outside tap and dips into the bucket as required.

@xFiacre We had a buffet lunch for topffer in Bordeaux and I had a snail or two. They aren't as nice as oysters.

Surely is a creative idea, the netting floor should prevent the bunny to dig a hole and escape... may be.

And if it were a cage for chickens, predators couldn't dig their way in.

I plan to make a chicken pen/coop like this but taller and portable so I can move it, the garden loves chicken poop.
