I've been trying to get a photo of the bunnies that shows their size relative to one another, but I'm afraid this isn't it.
If nothing else you get an idea of the kooky things I try to let everybunny have a little freedom without hurting one another in the process. Cricket is the big, big-eared bunny closest to the exercise pen that serves as a temporary fence. Little loppy-eared Peeper is on our side of the fence waiting for Cricket to get close enough so that she can attempt a bite at Cricket's nose through the fence. Boomer is reclining in a sunbeam in the background, unconcerned with the feminine territorial battle being played out before him. As long as he has a comfortable spot to nap in, he's happy.
Peeper weighs less than half what the Flemmies weigh, yet she is the more aggressive one and spent all her *out* time at the fence, rather than exploring the rest of the house. Once I got tired of keeping her from biting off Cricket's nose and put her back in *her* room, she promptly fell asleep for the remainder of the afternoon.
Exercise pens make a great safe place, indoors or out, to exercise a bunny that lives in a cage. They're also an excellent alternative to cages, so long as your bunny isn't a jumper. Peeper could never live in one because she can jump higher than the pen when she means to.
