## How many rabbits can you house together?

Most of the time, two pet rabbits are more than enough for a family. In general, each rabbit should have a minimum of 12 square feet of space with even more room allotted for running and playing.

## How many rabbits should be in a cage?

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.

## How much space do 4 rabbits need?

The total area available to them should be a minimum of 10 x 6 x 3 ft (3 x 2 x 1 m), made up of a hutch at least 6ft x 2ft (2m x 1m) and an attached run or enclosure. The height of their enclosure and sheltered area is very important as rabbits need to be able to jump and stand up on their back legs with room to spare.

## Can 8 rabbits live together?

Rabbits are naturally sociable, so they need companionship of their own kind. They will be much happier living in pairs or compatible groups, and will become very lonely if kept on their own. It is easiest if rabbits are kept together from birth, but rabbits less than 12 weeks old will usually live together happily.

## Can you have 3 rabbits together?

In the wild, rabbits will often live in extremely large groups, with parents and babies all in the same structure. Whilst most owners house a pair of rabbits, keeping three or four are also popular options. Rabbits will be very unhappy if they are kept in a hutch all the time – they need a run, too.

## Can 2 rabbits live in the same cage?

Rabbits should always live in pairs, as they can become stressed or sick if kept alone. They are sociable animals that need the company of other rabbits. There’s no guarantee that two rabbits will get along together. However, if you introduce them slowly and carefully, they should form a close bond.

## What size cage do 2 rabbits need?

Rabbit Cage Size for 2 Rabbits A good sized cage for two standard size rabbits should have at least 6 square feet of living space. If you plan on keeping two large or giant rabbits then you will need a cage that is at least 8 to 10 square feet. Two bunnies, on the other hand, will only need a 3 square foot cage.

## What is the minimum size for a rabbit cage?

The Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund recommends that your rabbit’s hutch be large enough for “three hops” from end to end. That means a minimum of six feet long by two feet high by two feet deep. A 6ft x 2ft x 2ft hutch will allow your rabbit to hop, stand up, stretch, and move around comfortably.

## How many rabbits do I need?

A realistic goal when raising meat rabbits that are from medium to larger breeds would be four or five litters a year. Expect anywhere from three to maybe as many as 15 babies (kits) in each litter. An optimum number would be seven.

## How much do rabbits cost?

Expect to pay $20-$40 for a rabbit from a pet store, and $5-$20 for a rabbit from a rescue, fair, or 4-H club. Breeders vary in what they charge for their specific breed of rabbit. Some are cheaper than pet stores while others with rare breeds will charge closer to $100 for a rabbit.

## What is the size of a rabbit?

Size. Some rabbits are about the size of a cat, and some can grow to be as big as a small child. Small rabbits, such as pygmy rabbits, can be as little as 8 inches (20 centimeters) in length and weigh less than a pound. Larger species grow to 20 inches (50 cm) and more than 10 lbs.

## Can I keep 5 rabbits together?

Give your rabbits enough space. If you are keeping multiple rabbits you need to give them enough space to move around.

This space per rabbit can be slightly reduced when housing them together.
