Buying a rabbit hutch?

  • What should I do to take care of it?

    Your hutch will need to be cleaned regularly so it doesn’t draw too many flies—if maggots start to breed, that could cause major health problems for your rabbit.

    Make sure to find a hutch that you’ll easily be able to get in and reach to sweep out all the corners. You’ll also want to make sure the door and structure are secure enough to keep out predators. Replace your hutch if it seems to be getting worn out, especially any mesh windows.

  • Do I need a hutch with an attached run?

    If your garden doesn’t already have an enclosed area with a fence to keep the rabbit in and any predators out, you might want to get a hutch that has a run so they’ll have plenty of space to exercise and move around safely, as well as a place to sleep. They also look nice.

    This is a good way to ensure that your rabbit has the space it needs to run around if it won’t be safe in the yard.

  • What’s the right material?

    You’ll want something weatherproof so your rabbit can stay dry in the rain. It’s also a good idea to get treated wood so it will hold up longer against the elements.

    A roomy, secure hutch will be a great place for your rabbit to live and play around outside without being bothered by predators or the weather.

  • How big should it be?

    Hutch size will depend on the size of the rabbit. A hutch needs to be big enough for the rabbit to make 3 or 4 hops without bumping into the side, lie down stretched out, turn around and stand fully on its back legs without bumping its head.

    Especially when they first come to a new environment, they’ll want to stand up and look around. You can also get two-storey hutches with separate areas. If you have two or more rabbits, they’ll need more room for playing, eating and sleeping.

  • What do I need to know about rabbit ownership?

    As with any pet, there are some accessories and other costs that come along with buying a rabbit. One of the main things you may want to buy is a hutch to serve as its outdoor home. There are a few considerations that go into choosing the right one for you and your rabbit.
