Should you build your own hutch from rabbit hutch plans? Or should you go pre-built? It’s easiest, of course, to buy a pre-made rabbit hutch. Home and Roost makes some of the highest quality hutches on the market today. But if you want to build your own rabbit hutch, we want to support you in that, too.
Before we answer that question, it’s important to understand the difference between a rabbit hutch and a rabbit run. A rabbit hutch is your rabbit’s “inside” living area. It’s where your rabbits will eat, sleep, and spend a lot of their “inside” time. A run is your rabbit’s outside exercise space. Ideally your hutch and run will connect, giving your rabbits all-day access to their outside exercise area.
Your rabbit hutch set up is more than a place for your rabbit to eat and sleep. It’s where your bunny will be spending a lot of his or her time. In addition to being safe and comfortable, your setup needs to provide exercise space, entertainment, and somewhere to get away. Does that sound like a lot? It’s not. Here’s how to do it.
