Having kept our two boys in the house for the past year and a half, we are wanting to pop them outside in hutches (separate I'm afraid as they have nasty fights together).
Obviously we want to do this in such a way that they suffer as little stress as possible (we will move them back indoors if they don't like it).
We have two hutches on legs and intend to put them by our back door at angles so they can still see each other. There they will completely sheltered from the wind.
So then, the usual request for advice. When it warms up should we slowly introduce them to the outside, i.e leave them out in the day and bring them in at night, once they are sleeping outside, is covering the hutches with carpet and some waterproof material sufficient? Are we being cruel putting them outside when they have been used to the indoors?
