For extreme cold weather with sideways freezing rain or even snow with windy conditions, we recommend placing a shield over the front during the nighttime hours. Below are two examples of how to do just that with your Rabbit’s Hutch.

Use the rings on the tarp to mount the top portion to the hutch, and secure the bottom corner rings around the hutch leg using a bungee cord or string on either side to keep it from flapping.  In the morning, roll the tarp and tie with a short piece of cord (like a curtain) to keep it in place.

Important Safety Information!
Make sure the rabbits cannot reach the shade, eating the shade is not helpful nor safe! Sunlight it important to your rabbit, it provides vitamins and helps keep the hutch clean, do not forget to raise the shade back up. Do not turn your rabbit hutch into a sweltering greenhouse by forgetting to raise the shade đŸ™‚
