Rabbits need their space
Although rabbits are social creatures and should be housed together in friendly pairs or groups, like us, they sometimes also need some time to be away from each other. Even if a hutch is your rabbits’ ‘bedroom’ area, you will still need to create separate spaces within it for your bunnies to sleep comfortably. Therefore, make sure you:
- Ideally create separate sleeping chambers for each rabbit.
- Ensure rabbits have a place to hide and get away from one another if they want to.
- Provide at least one sleeping area that is large enough for all the rabbits to sleep together if they want to.
- Line the sleeping area with newspaper (for absorbency) and cover in hay.
