Buying your first hutch? Beware of cheap, flat-pack hutches!
What to consider when buying an outdoor rabbit hutch
If you are looking for a new outdoor rabbit hutch, a large rabbit hutch and run combo, or just looking for rabbit housing requirements – you have come to the right place! At Garden Woodcraft, all of our rabbit hutch designs are based on what matters most to your bunny: size for room to hop and play, predator proofing for a secure predator safe environment, bunny proofing for piece of mind, and weatherproofing (waterproofing and winter proofing) to keep your bunny warm outside in winter!
Our large hutches meet all rabbit housing requirements and RSPCA rabbit hutch size guidelines
Most flat pack bought rabbit housing is now considered totally inadequate. RSPCA and RWAF (A Hutch is Not Enough – Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund (RWAF)) hutch standards now insist that you should ideally be looking for a 5ft outdoor rabbit hutch for a single rabbit, or since rabbits hate being lonely, a 6ft rabbit hutch for 2 rabbits is best. If you are looking for a rabbit hutch for 3 rabbits, our runs can be extended to 8ft, 10ft or 12ft!
Our hutches keep rabbits warm outside in winter
All of our larger rabbit hutches offer winter upgrades should you wish to convert yours to a more suitable cold weather rabbit hutch. Our unique roof design has a built in air-gap, making it the only outdoor insulated rabbit hutch available on the market. The roof also has a large overhang so rain doesn’t enter into the hutch – and also provides ideal summer shading – no need for clear plastic sheets and tarpaulins!
Make sure its fox proof, and predator safe!
Our winter proofing panels also provide unparalleled predator (fox) proofing. When fitted, they make sure that a fox could neither dig or tear its way in. Our range also include rabbit hutch locks for extra security, so access into the hutch is restricted by either a bolt lock or latch plus turn-buttons as standard. Some rabbits are also incredible diggers, so we recommend our outdoor rabbit runs to be set on concrete or patio, which are more secure, and can be swept and cleaned much easier! For gardens, our runs can be upgraded to include PVC coated wire mesh base panels for additional piece of mind!
