Housing your rabbits
Rabbits require a safe, secure and warm home to live in. All adult rabbits should have their own home. There are two main options of housing rabbits. You can build suspended wire pens with a wooden nest box on one end. This means cleaning is a breeze as all the droppings will fall through the mesh to the ground. The droppings can then be spread as fertilising pellets on the garden. The other popular option is to keep your bunnies on the lawn in moveable runs totally enclosed by wire. The rabbits can nibble on the grass and the run can be regularly moved to new ground. The main considerations are that any hutch is strong and secure and dog proof. It is also a good idea to use small gauge wire so that wild birds cannot enter the enclosure to steal grain. It needs to be warm and dry in winter and to provide shade in the summer heat.
