what age to put outside

Post by samscentials on Sat Sep 20, 2008 5:25 pm

what age would you recomend to put japs outside in a rabbit hutch, was just thinking as the weather was quite mild at the moment, in fact glorious sunshine today. my babies are still too young but i want them out asap to give them a chance to toughen up to last the winter. what age would you suggest at this time of year?

thanks guys, they are off heat now but obviously inside the house is warm.
was just wondering as if i left it too long i may have them inside all winter as i am a bit soft, but i want them settled to outside before it gets really cold.

I put some 4 week olds out earlier today while it was warm. I scooped them back into the box and brought them inside as soon as I started to notice them huddling together and cheeping.
