Your rabbits’ hutch
You’ll find many rabbit hutches available in pet stores and online. However, many are very poorly made and often fall apart within the first two years. You should consider investing a little more with a welfare-approved company, where the rabbit hutch is made of strong wood and suitable bolts have been fitted on the doors.
Double-level hutches are not ideal for rabbits. Your rabbits can be at risk of falling down the ramp or floor hole when they are elderly and less mobile. If you choose this option, build a banister along the ramp and around the top-level hole to aid them.
Wooden Wendy Houses or garden sheds can make an ideal home for your rabbits. You can easily convert them with mesh doors and a step-over barrier to stop them escaping. A shed gives your rabbits more floor space, and means it’s easier to socialise with their rabbits whatever the weather.
Whether you’re planning to buy a rabbit hutch or build your own, carry out regular inspections on your rabbits’ accommodation to check for damage from poor weather conditions.
