How Much Space Does a Rabbit /Chicken Need?

How Much Space Does a Rabbit /Chicken Need?

For Rabbit:

There’s no definitive answer to the question “how big is a rabbit cage/hutch/run?” It depends on the size of breed you have, the number of bunnies, and the space you have available etc.

How to calculate the size of rabbit hutch according to the size of bunnies?

1,Rabbit Hutch Width

A relaxed rabbit will fully stretch out when resting, so your rabbit hutch/cage should be wide enough to allow them to lie with its legs stretched and for plenty of room to turn around.

A minimum width of 23” for small to medium and 35” for large to giant breeds.

2,Rabbit Hutch Length

The hutch should be long enough for your rabbit to take at least 3-4 hops without bumping its nose on the end. A medium sized rabbit covers about 18" with each hop -below pictures for your reference.

Keep in mind the total floor area too, if your hutch is 2' wide, the length would need to need to be 6' to make 12 sq. ft. total.

3,Rabbit Hutch Height

They need to be able to stand on their back feet and not reach the top to check their environment is safe, and your rabbit's hutch/cage should be tall enough to allow this without your rabbit being hunched over or folding its ears against the roof.

A height of 23” is usually adequate for small rabbits but large breeds may need closer to 35”.

One to two medium sized rabbits will need a cage/hutch space of at least 12 square feet, combined with a run of at least 27 square feet.The front of the hutch should be long enough for two rabbits to lie down end-to-end.

If using a pen rather than a cage, the rabbits will need at least 30 square feet, including an internal hutch/sleeping space.

The more space you can provide, the better – you could, for example, combine two runs and a playpen.

For Chicken:

Considering owning chickens or increasing your flock? There are lots of benefits come with having your backyard flock,you can browse our Blog about “The benefit of raising chickens”.It's essential that your chickens have enough space inside the coop. One average-sized chicken (6-10 lbs) requires a minimum of 4 sq. ft. of space inside a coop. Please note, square footage recommendations vary for various chicken types and breeds based on size (ex: the smaller Bantam chicken type). An additional 8 to 10 sq. ft. per chicken in an attached run or free-range area is also recommended to allow for the chickens to exercise and roam.

1,Material: solid fir wood ➕animal-friendly paint➕heavy-duty galvanized predator-proof welded wire mesh ➕ robust quality hardware.
2 ,Weather-resistant: The roof is covered with asphalt for enhanced weather protection when put it outside.
3,Safe: there are secure latches on all the access points➕the outside area is surrounded by a wire cage that is dense enough to stop claws getting in but still provides plenty of fresh air and visibility for the rabbit.
4,Fast Moving: most of the rabbit hutches are on wheels, this means that you can wheel the hutch out of the house, into the garden to enjoy the sunshine and get fresh air, and back into the house at night.
5,Effortless cleaning: a removable wire net on the bottom tray to separate the waste from the floor and a fully removable tray for faster cleaning.
6,Easy Assembly: all of our cages will come flat packed. It comes with a sufficient pictorial manual. Screws were in marked plastic bags. Panels are stamped and come ready to be screwed together. Many have dowel rods that fit nicely into pre-drilled holes(pre-drilling will prevent any cracks and will preserve sturdiness while keeping wood intact).
