Homemade Rabbit Cages

The best homemade rabbit cages are built of welded wire. Wire cages are more durable than wooden cages and are less expensive in the long run. Wire cages reduce the incidence of disease because they are easier to clean and disinfect.

*sigh*

I'd never recommend a cage like this unless you were raising rabbits for meat. This cage is so small for a pet rabbit. You can have a bunny free in the house trained to use a litter box like a cat. My rabbit is free like this. Bunnies have so much personality and they are such social creatures. You can create a large cage quite cheaply with NIC cubes and cable ties.

Here is an excellent website about pet rabbits with tons of information including cages and litter training. called The House Rabbit Society http://www.rabbit.org

Thanks for the feedback. You are right, that is not a very good cage for a pet rabbit, I should have looked at it more closely. I encourage people to check out http://www.rabbit.org as well.

Here is what they say about cage size:

What size cage is best?

Bigger is better! A cage should be at least 4 times the size of your bunny--more if he is confined for a large amount of the day. You can build or buy your rabbit a two-storey "condo" with the floors connected by a ramp--they love this

I have two rats. Their cage is too small, and they are growing rapidly. I have heard that for rats, bigger is better. Unfortunately, the giant rat cages are just a wee but expensive. Do you have any ideas, or ways for me to build my own?

I have this wonderful rabbit that loves his cage almost as much as he likes run of the house in the morning and evening. The thing is I feel so bad for him in his cage and I cant find one big enough that I can keep in my house. So now I am on a search to have one built. Can you help?

try searching the internet for "nic cubes." There are a lot of people making rabbit cages out of them and they look great. Many people have pictures of ones they made and ideas on making your own. The cubes can be bought from places like target. I think target calls them organize it cubes. You should definately check it out.
