Can my rabbit be out in the cold?

0 votes

We have a rabbit hutch in our backyard and two really cute bunnies. Winter is almost here and I was wondering if we can keep the bunnies outside or do we need to make arrangements to keep them inside? If they can stay outside, what can we do to make sure that they get the shelter that they need?

Rabbit hutches need to be well protected from rain, snow, wind. In winter, extra hay should be provided. Bunnies should have a house in the hutch for protection against the elements. The top of the hutch must have a secure covering. When severe storms or temperature drops are predicted, it's best to bring the bunnies indoors and keep them in a cool room. If the weather is not fit for humans to be outdoors, it's definitely not right for the bunnies.
