Re: Letting rabbits outside in the garden/ yard (temperature question)
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I've had 'lucky 13' adopted pet rabbits through the last 20 years and the I only I limit their out time when it is too hot, over 86F/30C (too hot for me, anyway.) As to too cold, my pets show me their tolerance/ preference based on how they play and explore and calmly forage favorite weeds and grasses in their mini-meadow in the walled/fenced front yard. I leave the door propped open so they can come back in as they choose, and as soon as I catch them napping inside I close the door.
They love brief forays into snow and so long as they are in good health I leave them to their choice, down to about 32F/0C, again with the door ajar for them to slip back inside the house. Generally I'm more watchful and concerned to overrule their choice to be out on a hot day.
My bunnies would be grateful for your soft, cool day today, and so would I. Sweltering in northeast US.
