If there ever existed a commercial designer rabbit hutch in South Africa, this is ‘The One’.
The rabbits can slip away into the dimly lit nesting chamber at the side of the house through two tunnel holes. It is a simple matter to access this hide-away by lifting the hinged lid.
With a hinged maintenance access door, reaching and cleaning the elevated platforms has never been simpler. In addition, one can pull out the house’s floor to remove any droppings. Cleaning is a breeze all around.
The roof incorporates a grooming platform that, of course, is also good to store feed or be used to keep the bunnies safely while one is busy with rabbit hutch housekeeping chores.
‘The One’ is designed for outdoor use, even in full sun, without overheating. Cooler air draws into the house from the shaded underside. While it heats up, the hotter air raises through a hidden ventilation channel into the roof, where it escapes through a screened vent.
The outside rabbit run area protects the furry residents by thick galvanised welded mesh on sturdy frames. Digging out is prevented by a bottom layer of galvanised mesh, ideally buried below the surface, so it is only met when digging.
The house is elevated by half a meter, so the little ones have a shady and dry spot right underneath.
One of the two top sections of the run is hinged. This feature is practical for opening or closing the house door, removing or hooking on the extended access ramp, or grabbing the babies for cuddles.
Are the bunnies allowed to roam around? No problem. The short end of the run functions as a lockable flap. Swing it open or close as required.
