  1. #1

    Default how many

    how many rabbits could you keep in a 8ft x 4ft shed with attached run?

    if i was to build an 18ft run to give rabbits some out door exercise how many could i use it for at a time?

    you could have several rabbits, since an 18 ft run is huge. 120 sq ft (a 10x12 room for instance) can comfortably house 5-6 rabbits.

    Do you mean all bonded in one group? All neutered?

    Are you sure 7x3 is enough for 4 rabbits ?
    That's a foot longer and a foot wider than a 6x2 ft hutch - which can only house up to 2 rabbits.

    Depends on how wide that run is.

    Is the shed going to be attached to this 18ft run and how much time will they get in it?

    I hope I'm not sounding rude

    Will the run be attached permanently ?

    no, as its on the patio and mum won't have it their all the time and blah blah, tho they will be able to hop around the whole patio when supervised!

    its the biggest I can have!! and I've had to fight for it! and dad is still not happy with it, but tough! its bigger than what I would be allowed if I didn't have them as a quad!
