    Domestic rabbits are not fundamentally far removed from their wild cousins. They share the same need to run, jump, explore and share companionship with their own kind, so their accommodation must allow them to display these natural behaviours.

    The RWAF recommends a minimum hutch size of 6' x 2' x 2', which allows rabbits some room to move, stand on their hind legs and enough space for the food, toilet and sleeping areas to be kept apart. It is commonly accepted that a rabbit should have space for 3 hops, but it is commonly underestimated just how far 3 hops is - our tests show that 3 hops from an average sized rabbit covers 6-7 feet!

    A hutch should only be a shelter and not the only living space. It should be attached to a secure run of at least 8' x 4'.

    A Hutch alone is NOT enough


    Did you know it was the Victorians who first kept rabbits in hutches - a short term storage solution before the animals went to the pot?

    We've moved on a great deal since then, but the habit of keeping rabbits in hutches has stuck.

    Rabbits are not designed to live in a confined space. In the wild they cover an area equivalent to 30 football pitches. They're not designed to live alone either - wild rabbits live in large social groups, foraging, grooming each other and huddling together for warmth. Rabbits living alone experience high levels of stress.
