I am getting 2 mini rexs in about a month. I am building a hutch with an outdoor area. Is there any tips on what should be put in the run and hutch to make it fun and safe. I already plan on putting wire a fence down under the ground and on the bottom under the soil so they can't dig out. All information will be helpful. Thank you!!! Also I want to know how to litter box train them like to go in a specific box so the poop won't be everywhere I've heard of it but not sure how to do it! Thank you!

Are you getting two babies or adults and what is the purpose for the rabbits.... By that I mean are you planning on reading them or getting them fixed?

How much floor space does the hutch that you're planning to build have?

All of the pre-made rabbit hutches are too small for one rabbit much less two so think big.

Hay, water bowls and chew toys made of wood are a must. A large cat litter box.

Hiding spots like tunnels or something for them to get under to hide is a good idea too.

Here is a video of my rabbit hutch.
Notice the black litter box on the bottom floor of the actual hutch thingy.

I will be using them to show, and just mainly for pets. I haven't decided on the size yet, how bug is the minimum for 2 adult rabbits ( I will be getting two adults) I am planning on a huge hutch and run so it will be bigger than the minimum it can be for sure.

I have actual real rabbit cages... Three of them and I would not put one rabbit in one cage ever.
I think if I were to combine all three cages I could keep a rabbit or two in that area....maybe.

I would suggest building your hutch with no less than 15 square feet of floor space.

I'm probably not the best person to ask when it comes to how you should house rabbits. I'm a little bit on the extreme side.

And even then, they should be let out of that hutch very frequently, as that's nowhere near enough for any animal to stay in 24/7 - think of a human being trapped in a bathroom all day.
The only rabbit of mine that is in a pen has 48 square feet.
