A guide to comparing the prices of bunny cages

Finding the perfect cage for your perfect bunny can be a little challenging, but there are many places to look and a whole variety of different bunny cages out there; whether you're looking for something fancy or simple, indoor or outdoor or even extra large or regular size.

Choosing where to house your rabbit

If you've got this far into the buying process, you've probably already decided whether or not your bunny is going to be an indoor or outdoor pet. However, if you're still deciding it is worth comparing the difference in prices. An outdoor bunny hutch is going to be more expensive than buying an indoor cage. You can get all sorts of outdoor hutches, a standard one level hutch with a sleeping compartment will be about £50 (prices correct as of 01.09.11), it will cost more to buy one at a large pet shop than it will a small local business. A 2-level hutch will be closer to £100, again prices will depend on where you buy one from. These prices are from a large pet chain but they will be cheaper from a local shop. It's always a good idea to provide your bunny with a run so they can get good exercise. Rabbit runs again differ depending in size, but you can get play pens that can be set up outdoor or indoor for £35 or buy a permanent run for £70. If you decide on an indoor cage, there are only really two different types to choose from, a single level or a double level cage. If you have one rabbit, then a single level will be fine. These will be about £50 from a local pet shop or £75 from a larger chain. A double level cage is great for two rabbits and these are priced at £130.

A few tips

Rabbits are not the cheapest pets to get set up but choosing the right sized home for your bunny is essential, if ideally you'd like a larger cage then wait till you can buy a larger cage and not choose a cheaper one. The best places to go for a rabbit cage will be a local pet shop, you will find that you will be paying a lot less for the same product and it is a good chance to support a local bunny business. Bigger bunnies will need bigger and often more expensive cages whereas dwarf rabbits will need smaller and possibly cheaper cages. Once you've got the right sized cage, your bunny will get the exercise and space that they need and will be a very happy bunny indeed! A happy bunny means happy owners!
