    Default big hutch for 1 rabbit

    first post yay ^.^

    well i wanted to ask about this hutch i might be getting for my rabbit
    (we have 9 bunnies but only 1 is mine )

    well we go to Pets at Home for our hutchs and when i got Ivory she was quite small so a Heather Hideaway was plenty for her.
    but she has got so big that she really badly needs a new one,

    but for some reason i cannot think of Pets at Home have now stopped making the camomile cottage hutch(currently have 3) we even went to 3 different shops and none had it.

    and so the next biggest one "Thistle Hall" is 50 more and its massive for just her, i was wondering should i just spoil her and let her have it all to herself or should i put another rabbit in with her?

    oh its a 2 tier hutch we were thinking of blocking off the step so its like 2 hutches, its that big it could house 2 rabbits

    The bigger the better I'd say, she'd love lots of room to run around

    Sadly the hutches you mention are now considered too small to keep rabbits in.
    The thistle hall is fine and would be ok for 2 small rabbits such as nethies..but I wouldn't section it on purpose...
    ideally a bun should have a space of 5 feet by 2 feet by 2 feet as a minimum for a permanent home..
    so how about a Lavender lodge for her..I think that is 5 ft??

    I beleive under the new Animal Welfare bill the RWA recommend a hutch size no less than 6ft x 2ft x 2ft.
    Try Happy Hutch you can get one that size with a run attached for a reasonable price

    so if i got the thistle hall just for her would it be ok? (keeping it just as the 1 big hutch)
    and is that why the camomile cottage is not being sold anymore because its too small now

    the Lavendar Lodge is cheaper than the thistle hall but bigger. because of the ramp in the thistle hall and the fact it isnt very deep, there isnt much room for bunnies to stretch out. So the LL is bigger and cheaper
