RECOMMENDED BUNNY CARE ITEMS

X-PEN

If you are unable to free roam your bunny, a large x-pen is a great enclosure. This provides a nice space for your rabbit to exercise and gives enough room for all of the necessities such as a litter box and toys. Bunnies can jump very high so the pen needs to be a minimum of 40 inches tall. For flooring, a fleece blanket is perfect or a layer of vinyl flooring. Carpet is not recommended since rabbits can ingest the threading.

OPEN LITTER BOX

A medium sized cat litter box is perfect for your bunny. This provides enough space for your bunny to use the bathroom but isn't tall enough to cause them any harm when entering/exiting.

LITTER BOX WITH A TRAY

This litter box is perfect if your bunny is a digger. We recommend getting the largest size available for this option.

PAPER LITTER

Did you know that cat litter is toxic to rabbits?
Paper Pellets are a great option for rabbit litter. Unlike cat litter, instead of scooping you just dump the entire litter box every few days and add a fresh layer of paper pellets. Make sure that the paper pellets are unscented. This can be found at Petsmart, Amazon or Petco.

WOOD PELLETS

Wood pellets from Tractor Supply are our personal favorite litter. They are extremely absorbent, scent free and cost effective. You only need a very small layer of these pellets and the bag lasts a long time.
If you do have a local Tractor Supply, we recommend the wood pellets over the paper pellets.

HAY RACK

Rabbits love to use the bathroom while munching on their hay. This is why we always recommend a hay rack above their litter box. This also helps to keep the hay contained to supply a cleaner environment.

PELLET FEED

At The Cope Clan, we use Kalmbach 18%. While it only comes in 50 pound bags, it is worth it when you have multiple bunnies. This feed has everything to keep your rabbit healthy and happy.

OXBOW PELLETS

Oxbow is a great brand for all your bunny needs. We recommend young rabbit pellets until the rabbit is 6 months old. After that, you can switch to Oxbow adult pellets. We free feed our rabbits but it is not necessary. Offer pellets 24/7 until your bunny is 6 months old. After that, you can continue this routine or switch to 1/2 cup a day. Vegetables should not be given until 12 weeks of age so their GI tract is fully formed.

SECOND CUT HAY

Farm fresh second cut hay is a great option if you have the storage room for a bale.

OXBOW HAY

Any hay by Oxbow that is timothy based is a great option for your bunny. Hay should be supplied at all times so that your bunny always has access to it.

CHEW TOYS

Chew toys are neccesary to keep your rabbits teeth down. At least one chew toy should be available to the rabbit at all times. Anything by oxbow is a great option. You want to make sure the chew toy is firm and not easily destroyed.

TREATS

Do NOT give your bunny anything besides hay and pellets until they are 12 weeks old. Any treats by Oxbow are safe for your rabbit.

WATER & FOOD BOWLS

Ceramic bowls are always best for a rabbit. They love to tip their bowls so this helps in prevention of messes.

HUTCH

If you are worried about not having an enclosed space, a large hutch is a great option. Although, you must make sure that the rabbit has enough room to get proper exercise.
