Pens or cages?
One of the most important things to invest in for your rabbits is their living area. Some people are not a fan of caged animals and there are other alternatives for you to house your rabbit in a safe area without having them caged.
Exercise pens are a great way to have a cage free setup and you can be more creative with the goodies you want to put inside their area. With cages you are restricted to what you can put inside because of the limited space.
This first pen below is nice because it’s inexpensive and you can attach more than one if you want to expand the space. Some rabbits can jump pretty high so we recommend getting a pen at least 36” high. The higher the better, so if you want to spend the few extra to get a 42” it would be a good idea! It comes with (8) 2ft panels so it’s 16sqft. These pens are light weight and easy to move so if you wanted to give your bunny playtime outside, you just simply fold it up and setup outside!

This second pen is very nice and modern looking for your home. It is easy to setup and the plexi glass gives it a better look then the standard wire or fencing. Clearly Loved Pet pens are a safer option for rabbits because of the fact there is no wire and your rabbit wouldn't be able to climb up to get out the the pen. This is not a super common problem with rabbits, especially if they have adequate space throughout the day. There are a few different options on their website. Pictured below is a large which is more than tall enough for rabbits. You could get away with buying a medium and being fine as well. The great thing about this pen is you can buy extension pieces if you wanted to make the area larger. There is also a door for easy access. They are more expensive but these are definitely worth the investment.
This third pen is a more fun and creative way to plan your bunnies area. Each panel is separate and can be attached to make boxes to create multiple levels. Your choices are a 12 panel, 24 panel, or 36 panel package. The 36 panel is definitely the way to go price wise. This way if you wanted to start off with a smaller area for potty training purposes and gradually make it bigger, you’ve already saved by buying the bigger package. You will most likely need to start with two layers as your bunny will be able to jump over only one level. These pens are nice for indoor setups but will be a little more difficult to move from inside to outside, so you may want to keep this pen inside and also purchase the exercise pen mentioned above for easy setup outside.

Some families feel safer if their rabbit is confined completely while they are out. Cages are acceptable for rabbits if they are the right size and also be sure they get time outside of the cage daily. The number one cage we recommend is the World Living Habitat XL cage. It’s dimensions are 4ft by 3 ft with plenty of head room. The entire top is rounded which gives them more head space and the whole top opens which makes it easier to handle your rabbit. Some cages that only have a door on the side makes it a little difficult to reach in and handle your rabbit properly. The Living World also has solid floor cages so no wires to harm your bunnies’ feet. One feature that we like about these cages is they come with a water bottle, food dish, and hay rack already. They aren’t anything fancy but they get the job done. You’re also welcome to replace those items with anything else as well. Even though these cages are spacious, rabbit still need to exercise. With any cage purchase whether it’s this Living World cage or a nice hutch, we always recommend getting an exercise pen as well and attaching it around the cage so they aren’t just stuck in their cage for most of the time. Rabbits need to run, jump, flop, and zoom!
