Need to find a way to stop the digging

Saturday morning when I went out to feed the boys I find Gerald's face covered in dirt. Most of the dirt part of the rabbitat is covered in wood (which you can't see in the picture because it's covered in dirt), but there is a spot where there is no wood covering (because we ran out of large boards). So when they boys dig a hole I throw what ever I can find into it, so when they dig again they can't go far. It's funny (not really) because they are a tag team. One digs, then they both move the dirt, then the other digs. Good job guys, you made me late for work (yes, on a Saturday).

Look at his paw ON the bowl!

Distructo buns!

Is THAT what the big mounds are in our yard???? Have those boys been visiting at night???

Guess a bun's got to do what a bun's got to do. (or dig) Good luck. Know you've been battling this for a long time.

That looks like FUN!

How about getting a box, cutting two holes through like a tunnel, and then stuffing it with hay? or just getting a huge box and stuffing it with hay so they can jump in and dig... or putting a BALE of hay out for them to tunnel and dig in...any of those feasible?

Hmmm...well, as long as they do not dig the carpets..!
Deb's ideas may be worth testing - I am glad mine were never big diggers, even when they're in the grassy front garden they can't be bothered to dig. Miss Eve prefers to trim fabrics...

Have you considered Quikrete (not for them but for a pour where they dig)? Corrective mittens? Stern lectures? No?

FOTA is too soft for harsh words! Besides, they are bunnies with tender ears.

I suspected as much. I'm a mush when it comes to my babies too. Gerald is a mess (southern for adorable), I don't know that I would be able to resist him. You're such a good bun mum. How is his eye? Better I hope.
