We bought this for our much loved one year old rabbit but she doesn’t like the nest area, she sits in the rain and rarely ventures inside. Unlike normal hutches there is not the opportunity for our rabbit to sit stretched out, looking out when the weather is bad. We have our lawn treated by greenthumb and we had to lift it off the lawn for two weeks into the patio and we had to dismantle the whole run to move it up to the terrasse. So we are now thinking of getting another rabbit for the spring to try and get her outside permanently, it is annoying as this was an expensive cage but not working for us . Also are the bars if the run rat proof as our neighbour had a rat in their garden and I have read they can squeeze through a pound coin size hole ?

Omlet Says: Hi Jenny,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
We are sorry to read about your situation. There may be several reasons why your rabbit has difficulties with his new hutch. An idea would be to try to attract him with treats, so that he may associate it with pleasure when he is inside. Maybe another type of bedding would help, or it could be that a cover by the entrance makes it look too dark for example. Usually, the hutch is a place where rabbits should feel comfortable and safe, so hopefully you will be able to find a solution.
Our Customer Service Team stays at your disposal for any further information.
In regards to the question about the rats, like you said, they can squeeze in the smallest places, so it may be indeed possible for them to access the run. In that case, we would advise to add additional mesh around the run, which would improve the security against the rats.
Your feedback has been passed to our product design team who will have a look at future improvements in the areas you outlined.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us for any question, or if you have anything else to pass on to us.

As we expected the quality of the product is great. The only negative is buying the 3 meter run did add complexity in the installation as there was no clear instructions on installing it and we only worked it out by doing a google search. My recommendation to Omlet is please number each part so that it is clear which part goes ware especially for the run. What was 2 hours took 4 hours due to lack of clear instructions. The rear door does also catch a bit when opening. Review for: Eglu Go Rabbit Hutch with 3m Run Package - Leaf Green
Eglu Go Rabbit Hutch Review
My honest review is “Overall” it is a good product, it looks great, easy to use and comes with lots of ability to expand and try other accessories. It is a very strong and durable hutch. However, this product is not out of the box ready. The clips that came with the product are ineffective, “totally obsolete” for the purpose of safely holding an animal. The shade cloth is very weak. The accessories that came with the product are very cheap and came broken upon arrival. Given the inordinate price tag of the product I expect that at a minimum it is build ready out of the package and this was not the case.
I would buy this product again however I would have had a big bag of zip ties already standing by. Once the hutch is built and stabilized it will without equivocation hold up to the elements and predators. Biggest word of advice please fix the clips and shade cloth even if it means not including the freebee water bottle, hay feeder and bowl. The utility of hutch stabilization and shade cover is paramount.
• Great overall look
• Ease of usability
• Great overall size and easy to expand
• Comes in different colors and many more accessories
• Designed for hot and cold climates
• Can be used hand in hand with gardens
• Very light

• Very expensive start up $439
• Accessories are also expensive ($64.95-wheel set)
Low Maintenance: 9/10
• Easy to clean
• Easy to open doors and slide out trays
• Once stabilized requires virtually no maintenance
Overall: 7.5/10 or 3.5 Stars
Review for: Eglu Go Rabbit Hutch with 6ft Run Package - Leaf Green
Omlet Says: Hi Mike,
Thank you for your feedback.
It sounds as though you were sent clips from a bad batch as our clips have held together Eglu runs for 15 years. We will be happy to send you replacements: please contact our customer service team if you would like them.
The cover included in the order is a summer shade. We do have heavy duty covers available on our website.
We hope your rabbits are enjoying their new home.
We bought 2 of these, one for a rabbit and one for a guinea pig. These runs look really nice and generally feel sturdy but there are some issues. The water bottles leak inside the box and over the day, will empty themselves. It’s also difficult to get the rabbit out of the cage part of the run. I also begrudge paying £20 delivery on a £700+ order. Review for: Eglu Go Rabbit Hutch with 2m Run Package - Leaf Green
