Droopy Ears Rabbitry

Breeder of Mini Lop Rabbits in Perth, WA

What do I need to buy before I bring my new rabbit home?



A: Your shopping list should contain the following

Good quality hutch

The minimum recommended size for a hutch is 120 cm . It is essential that your rabbit have the room to stretch in all directions. A rabbit hutch that’s too small can affect your rabbits health – causing spine problems, muscle wastage and obesity.


Large run or play pen

Rabbits should also be allowed out of their cage frequently to play and exercise in a safe environment.  A pet playpen is ideal for this purpose.


If you prefer to have a safer option then you can take your rabbit for a walk with a harness. They are available at pet stores.

Bedding material

You can use wood shavings or hay for bedding. Some people use shredded paper which is also a good idea. 
Newspaper is not so good. It stains their feet and is not absorbent at all.



Litter Tray

It is easy to litter tray rabbits so get a litter tray. Something that do not take too much space up in bunny’s hutch.




What to use in the litter tray
Stay clear of types of litter that aren’t suitable for rabbits, such scented kitty litter. 

You can find a kitty litter that is made of recycled paper that is very effective for Rabbits. 
You can buy that from Coles or Woolworths.


Food

Rabbits will need hay as well as a rabbit pellet mix available from pet stores or City Farmers.
