The Country Cottage
Built around two trays on a single storey with a centre entrance. This can be dropped to allow access to the under hutch area. One side is completely enclosed. Constructed from a strong 50mm square pine frame and premium tongue and grooved sides and doors. This provides good insulation and protection from the rain and wind. Approximately 200cms wide by 60cms deep and 100cms high at the front. With an outside run, the Country Cottage is large enough for 2 grown rabbits.
Dad's dog gets long weekend walks and dental care. Mum's cat gets its own place on the sofa and special grooming. Even little Jimmy's fish get high tech cleaning equipment and fun bubble toys. But what does little Sue's rabbit get? Usually at best, a cheap 2 compartment 'Prison' made from thin pine and painted with a barely non-
What did poor pet rabbits ever do to deserve this treatment! Rabbits need as much protection from the elements, security, good hygienic conditions and room to live, sleep and play as any other house pet. Buy one of our hutches and they will get ALL that and more.
Not providing the above will soon lead to a deterioration in your rabbits health. Rabbits are not generally a robust breed and will soon die once ill. And keeping a rabbit locked in a cramped hutch all the time is cruel. Some books and breeders say it is ok to do this. They are simply wrong!!
Our hutches are built around plastic trays which allow for the easy removal of the bedding into the recycling bin and regular cleaning (Use a small amount of TCP or white vinegar. If you use bleach the tray must be thoroughly cleaned of all bleach residue). Use of a removable tray also stops the wood in the hutch becoming saturated with rabbit urine. Rabbit urine is nasty stuff and quickly gives off a strong ammonia smell if left (it's great on weeds though).
We offer three stock designs and our bespoke service. We also offer runs that fit onto the front of all our hutches. As with all our products we can provide the hutch with an unfinished surface so you can apply your own colour (use a water based non-
We have been keeping rabbits now for about 12 years since our daughter was young. Most of the designs on offer come from our experience of keeping rabbits over this time, so we can say we have a bit of knowledge in this field. Our current family comprise of Rabbito (a male Harlequin, the heavy weight and definitely The Boss), Fluff (a male Chinchilla from the RSPCA, and a bit of a grump) and Biscuit (a young Dutch and a real character).
Our rabbits have the run of the whole back garden or we can keep them enclosed on just the patio. If you want to let your rabbits to run on the grass (they are great lawn mowers and produce good fertiliser) do not bother with cumbersome wooden runs. Just buy a roll of wire mesh 120cm high with small holes (try Wickes). Not the green plastic coated. The holes are two big. Your rabbit can get its head through, get stuck and throttle itself. Then buy some long bamboo canes, knit them through the mesh and stick in the ground in a circle, making sure there is a good escape proof overlap. You can make the enclosure as big or small as you want, move it round the garden so the grass can grow back, and just roll it up and pack it way when not wanted. Simples!!
