If housed outside, rabbits must have enough space to stretch out in all directions and to stand up on their hindlimbs. Ideally a minimum of a 6′ hutch is required. The hutch should be divided into two sections – one enclosed with plenty of bedding such as straw, and the other wire-fronted with a thin covering of paper, sawdust or straw.

If housed inside, a hutch should be available to keep your rabbit safe overnight as they are prone to eating electric cables.

Rabbits are easily litter trained, but are coprophagic and must be allowed to eat their coprophages.

Whether housed indoors or out it is important to ensure that rabbits are protected from extremes of temperature, and given a covered area to provide shelter from the elements (or from over-enthusiastic children or other pets!)
