We started building a hutch last week, and finally finished up this morning. We moved it into its new home, inside our empty wood shed. We’ll find it a better home in the spring, but we thought this would be the best place for it for the winter.
We built it with scrap wood and things we found around the house. Here are some pictures of the hutch:
Here the bunnies are enjoying their new abode. Please forgive the fuzziness of the pictures, I thought they would turn out better but the bunnies move a lot.
So far it’s going well. We are going to make some wooden nest boxes for all three of the rabbits, so that they have somewhere to go to get more warm. The metal nest box I gave to my doe is ok for now, but I worry that it would be too cold in winter. I have the hutch facing the house so that they won’t get as much wind in their cages, but I plan on putting tarp up or something when we get really windy cold days in the winter.
