New rabbit growout pen design

Our kits are growing quickly and we're in need of more and more growout pens.  Greg added a hutch area to this version of our homemade growout pens.  With the fiercely cold temps we've had this winter, it's been reassuring to know that the rabbits have a little additional protection from the weather.

This is the first grow-out pen with an enclosed hutch area. Originally, we felt that leaving the entire pen with access to grass was a better idea. However, with so much rain at near freezing temperatures and the snow we've had recently, we decided the kits needed to be able to get off the ground.
