Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

Ty Lin, I want to give her the best possible life I can whilst she is in my care! I was thinking of a ceramic emitter at night as they don't give off light, or a greenhouse tube heater. Then I can get a guard for it and have it lower down, will research and see what's best. Its been lovely seeing he...

Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

Thank you Nina, totally agree with the door but the shed is only temporary, will look into a brick, properly insulated house asap! We had to move so quick, I am exhausted but settling in now and all the animals are doing well. Can't wait till summer, although happy the dandelions, sowthistle & plant...

Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

As I am a born worrier I have put Speedy in the meter cupboard just for night time. It has no natural light and is only a metre square, but she seems happy in there! Luckily the weather has been ok so she's been out in the enclosure during the day. I have changed to a 150w bulb and it does get nice ...

Re: New garden! Plant I.d please

The 1st pic is supposed to be with the 6th pic! I have no idea what that is!
The 2nd looks like buttercup maybe?
The 3rd has a white flower, not sure again.

Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

Thank you for your replies, as I've had to move quickly I haven't had time to plan and the wooden 'hutch' is temporary! I am going to see about a brick house once I'm settled etc. The 'hutch' building is 1 metre square inside the sleeping area, it should warm up nicely as I am going to insulate insi...

Speedy's Outside enclosure

Hi guys, so sorry I haven't been online but life just keeps taking over! We are having to move and I have set up a 'hutch' outside for Speedy, as I have no room indoors for her! I have attached a pic. She will have a 16x8 foot fenced off total grass enclosure just for her so I think she will be happ...

Re: Tiny's new outside enclosure

Thank you! I want her to be happy and do tortoise things! I thought I cud change it around regularly to keep her interest and I'm glad she can sleep in there, I hate disturbing her once she's settled! Can't wait to go out on summer mornings and find her already exploring :D Also if it wasn't for thi...
