A wooden rabbit hutch should be at least 6 by 2 feet and provide approximately 12 square feet of living space. In addition to the hutch space, a rabbit should have a larger area of at least 32 square feet for exercise.
The smallest dimension of the rabbit hutch should be equal to or greater than the length of the rabbit when it is fully stretched out, which is typically about two feet for a small- to medium-sized rabbit. Larger rabbits can be three feet long or longer. The hutch should be tall enough for the rabbit to stand on its hind legs without hitting its head on the enclosure.
