It’s been a long haul, but I’ve finally got there. We have 2 Dutch bunnies who are separated AFTER getting neutered but like seeing each other. They adore their Omlet outdoor run plus eglus (hate being inside), but need to be in a double hutch in the garage in the winter cold. I have finally set up a divided run with a tunnel run each to the (early) Omlet play pen across the single garage width. The tunnels actually only bend slightly, and those 90 degree corners and angled connectors are very important. The smarter shyer bunny is in the top half of the hutch, but has no issues with scrabbling up the ridged tunnels, which have to be on a diagonal (took him 5 minutes of testing). I am now debating whether to cut down a length of tube so that the full garage width is exploited. I’ve learned that you should always install a full closing door at the ends for isolation, and should have an unistalled door or a connector with a homemade blanking plate for adjustments. The bunnies went from sulks to joy instantly. Come summer, the whole tunnel system moves outside to the lawn.
What a fantastic purchase this has been! We use our tunnels for bunnies and guinea pigs and they have all thoroughly enjoyed them. Its unusual to find a product on the market that isn't just pleasing to the eye but also super practical. I'm happy knowing our little menagerie of creatures can run between hutches and runs, mimicking their natural habitat and keeping them happy and healthy!! We found the tunnels so easy to put together that even the kids got involved, and then spent hours hiding treats and creating different "mazes" for them to explore. 10/10 product - well done Omlet!!
