    Default Max Number of Rabbits in 8x6 Shed?

    I'm wondering the maximum number of rabbits that would comfortably be housed in an 8x6 shed? Only as a sleeping/eating area, with access to a huge 10m long run all day. I'm considering rescuing another neglected rabbit in Plumpkin's honour.

    dear beapig,--8ftx6ft=48sq.ft-try to allow 2sqft.ea.-[4 bun] max,--you could install condo,s--providing this shed-is insulated and hvac-,o/h -broad band lighting,any run and housing must be designed with predators in mind..--hope this helps in the design--sincerely james waller from across the great pond-usa

    At one time I had 4 Rexes in my 8x6 shed plus large run They seemed to have ample room.

    Thanks Jewaller and Omi! Four was the number of bunnies I had in my head, looking at the space. They have a second level in there too, which makes it feel even bigger
