Rabbit | Construction of a Hutch

If no building exists, this backyard hutch will protect the animals in most climates. It utilizes both wooden and wire parts. Be certain wooden parts are sanitized regularly when used.

Hutch Building Materials

  • 2 ft. 2” x 4” (door support)
  • 66 ft. 2” x 2” (back, front, side framing)
  • 80 ft. 1” x 6” (roof & hinged panels)
  • 72 ft 1” x 3” Shiplap, 8 pieces. -8 x 4” (back)
  • 42 ft. 1” x 2” (braces & nailers)
  • 9 ft. x 30” 1/2 x 1, 16 gauge, galvanized mesh (Floor)
  • 15 ft. x 24 “ 1 x 1, 14 gauge, galvanized mesh (front & sides)
  • 36 sq. ft. 45# Felt roofing paper
  • 2 1 x 1 x 1/2” x 4” Door Latches
  • 8 Hinges (door & side cover)
  • Misc. Nails, hooks, eyes & wire

Note: Hutch size varies with the breed of rabbits for which they are intended. This hutch plan is for medium breeds. If you raise small breeds (3-6 pounds) the hutch length could be cut to 3 feet instead of 4. Giant breeds (14 pounds and up) need much more room. For them, extend these plans to make each hutch 6 feet long. These sizes are recommended for one doe and her litter.

The hinged side doors would be needed only in climates where cold weather is a factor.
