First, how big of a rabbit are you going to get. Second, how much space does each rabbit need in their cage?
Here are some basic minimum measurements that you will need to know for your rabbits according to breed and weight. Remember, these are just the bare minimum and you can go bigger. In fact, it is recommended that you do in most cases.
Plan according to the area you have specified for the rabbits to be housed and go from there.
There are many materials that you could use to make a rabbit cage but here are a few things to consider before jumping into it.
Wood is a great go to for making shelves and frames but also remember that wood absorbs all of that urine and any kind of ickies your rabbit may catch making it very difficult to clean 100%.
Chicken wire is very flimsy and does not support well.
The wire needs to be small enough for the rabbit so his/her legs don’t get caught in it and big enough that their poops can fall through.
