Buying a new hutch for your pet rabbit or guinea pig
If you got a rabbit or guinea pig for Christmas, youll have been spoiling them over the festive period. When it comes to keep small animals you need to make sure that you have all of the essentials.
A hutch is a necessity if you are keeping rabbits or guinea pigs. Not only to do they need shelter when it is cold but also acts as a refuge for them when the weather starts to get a bit warmer. Most hutches come with two compartments. The first is a closed off part where your rabbit or guinea pig can go to sleep or have a rest, with another meshed section where they can eat their food or have a drink as well as hop around to their hearts content.
The hutch size should be relative to the size of the animal, although your bunny rabbit might be small now, they will grow over the coming years and you need to make sure their accommodation is big enough for them. When you bought your rabbit or guinea pig, you will usually get told how big they will grow to. This why hutches come in a variety of sizes so be sure to buy the right size for your new pet.
