This model is good for up to three bunnies. The inner dimensions are 69"x29" and it has a 24"x29" raised floor with 19-guage hardware cloth floor for an insulated bunny house. You will need to find a soft mat, blanket, pet bed, or pet crate bed for the floor. My bunnies had 10 babies so I'm building rabbit tractor/hutch until they are gone. Bunnies love rabbit tractors and eating your lawn, and it's cheaper and healthier. Just move the tractor every day. I move my bun-buns from the house to the hutch to the tractor once or twice per day. This is much better than the Amazon hutches, which are small, thin, and fall apart easily. The cover is coming in the mail, I will sell for $90 without the cover, which is what i paid for it; I'm making a YouTube tutorial. I will update as soon as I have the insulated house made.

The benefit of this design is that it uses only 2.4 8-feet 2x2 pressure treated boards designed to prevent bunnies from chewing it, and it has four metal brackets on the corners so it's very light and strong, and easy to move. All four sides have a door and it makes it easy to connect to an existing hutch to extend the area, and maybe add some chicken tunnels (my next project). The boards also make it very easy to attach cover with a staple gun so you can replace it using a crazy cheap used waterproof outdoor curtain from Amazon and some reflective insulation. You may want two of them and connect them with "chicken tunnels".

I built this tractor on April 29, 2024, it's the first one and is not perfect but is rock solid with metal connectors so I'm only charging $25 for labor. If you want another one when I make multiple at ones, it will cost you $180, $65 of that is labor costs. I'm working on a 2-story design using the 84"x40" metal chick coup to split up the boys and girls, it should cost $260.

I have Flemish_Giant-Lionhead hybrid baby bunnies for $25. Grandpa weighed 13 pounds, dad is still only a few months old and growing but is very big and healthy with no abnormalities. Mom is a rescue bunny who wandered into my yard, she is super sweet and gives huge bunny hugs.
