Wow. That's quite a setup! So, will the humans get to enjoy any of that lettuce? Or is Peter the lucky recipient of all the harvest?
2/3 - Peter, 1/3 - human to start with at least. The goal is to not have to buy greens at the store so it will change if Peter needs more or less once the plants are all fully grown and being harvested.

Oh, the poor bunny. Peter, you sure knew what you were doing when you hopped into mama Kieka Kieka 's yard, which ensured you would have a much happier / well cared for life.:bunnydance:
True. That was the best thing that could have happened to him. Every bunny should have the life dear Peter has. :heartshape:

Peter's current favorite spot is laying on the stone under the hydroponic tank. I am fairly sure the temperature under there is a few degrees cooler then anywhere else.

Evening Peter check in.

Also, random realization, when we found Peter he would have been an adult 3-6 years old. At that time he weighed just shy of 4 pounds, at his most recent vet visit he weighed 5.7 pounds. He is not a fat bunny so he was very underweight, which I knew but seeing the numbers on his chart was a little shocking when I saw it today updating his records. Especially putting into context that he was full grown at that time. I really wish he could tell his story because I know he is a very determined little one with a strong drive to survive.

In case anyone was curious, if you want to make a bunny mad put a hat on him.

In other news, we've started rebuilding Peters area in the back yard to move him back now that he has his vaccine. I was looking for a new hutch with more floor space for him to stretch and enough room to stand. After looking I couldn't find one that met my expectations in all areas: wrong fencing, poor human access points or too bird geared. So I bought the same hutch he has now (his current one being three years old and starting to show age). We are going to take off the back wall and add on an enclosed run space. Here is the outline of the run space, we are putting stone along the whole bottom to make it safe and keep it cooler.

Peter looks very dapper in his straw hat. 👒

Have I ever mentioned it is very hard to bunny? Peters berries are end of season and just not good enough so he had to go without tonight (as in he turned his little nose up at them). Then grandma got romaine lettuce instead of the green leaf lettuce (and the hydroponic spring mix wasn't at the farmers market). And then I moved his tunnel six inches to the left. It was just a tragic evening.

At least the water drinking, face cleaning and flop to stretch the tummy went right.
