If she is due to kindle within the next few days, leave it alone. If the hutch needs cleaned really bad, by all means clean it. You can try to salvage as much fur, or better yet the whole nest, if it is still clean. Just place what you saved back where it was after you clean. It is better to remove a whole dirty nest than to let her kindle in it as it may lead to disease for the kits.

What do you use to fully disinfect a rabbit hutch?

It is best to go to a pet shop and get a rabbit/animal friendly disinfectant, but you could also use javex, or most other disinfectants but you have to wait until the hutch is COMPLETELY dry until you put the rabbit back in. You can also clean a rabbit hutch with white vinegar. You can sprinkle a bit of baking soda in the places where is still has an unpleasant odor.

How do you get rid of your rabbits smell?

if a rabbit smells, it may have a dirty cage or hutch. All you need is some woodchip and straw or hay and a little bit of disinfectant to clean it. Or if you try cleaning the hutch and the rabbit still smells, take it to the vet. He/she will sort it out.

Hay for livestock (cows or rabbits) is still grass that has been mown, dried and either baled, in the case with cattle, or sold in small bags in a pet shop. Hay is used mainly as a bedding in a rabbit hutch, though the rabbit is not adversed to nibbling at the hay - though proper rabbit food and water should be available.

How do you look after a rabbit?

Thinking of getting a rabbit? Read this!A rabbit is a great family pet.You will need ...A HutchHay and straw to nestle inside the hutchRabbit food + vegetables + Dandelions (Rabbits LOVE these)Water bottleA Cage (run) to put out on the lawn in summertimeRabbit RulesIn the hutch, you need to put layers of newspaper in it's bedroom and also hay and straw. In it's living room you can put sawdust in.It's hutch needs to be cleaned and refreshed once a week and you need to check your bunny's water supply every day.Make sure it is warm enough in winter. You can do this by putting extra hay in the hutch so your bunny is nice and cosy.When it is cold, I put my rabbit in the garage in a smaller, different hutch so he is warm.In the summer, in the day I put my rabbit in an outside run (cage) on the grass, and then I put him in his hutch overnight as it is warm (ish).Also, you can give your pet rabbit left overs. You know, the tips of the carrots you chopped off; or the core of the apples you cut. A personal favourite of my rabbit is the core of a nectarine.If you are thinking of getting two rabbits, don't get two males. In exceptional cases, two males may get on. But pretty much all the other times males will fight and can get very aggressive. Two females are usually fine together, and obviously a male and a female will probably get on really well ( but will most definitely have babies ).Make sure you have the time to give your rabbit care and attention. If you don't, your rabbit will probably become scared of you or angry. Still, a rabbit definitely DOES NOT need as much attention as a dog receives, by a mile!Males and females: It doesn't really matter what gender rabbit you get as both types are still gentle animals. I have a male and he is very gentle to me, yet I have been told that female rabbits are usually more shy and gentle.

There are pincher bugs in my rabbits hutch are they harmful to my rabbits health and how can they be prevented from being there?

I get those nasty things in my rabbit's hutch too. I would suggest that the hutch should be cleaned out reguarly removing any damp dead bits of wood in the hutch where the bugs like to hide. Squash all the ones that you can see (if that is possible). Also note that birds love all sorts of bugs including earwigs/pincher bugs. I would not recommend the spray method as this could cause harm to your rabbit and perhaps garden birds. If you still have trouble then asking a local vet for advice is a good idea. I would just like to add to put in some Poultry powder made for chickens under the fresh bedding which kill lice, etc. Put the powder in all the corners of the cage and generally under the new bedding. You could also spray lightly with the Spray made for chickens in all corners too. Can find these sprays and powders in your local feed store. They are very safe. Clean your cage out on a regular basis.

Is rabbit the most sexually active animal?

How do you tell what a rabbit is saying?

You have to understand their body language. If your rabbit grunts or tries to pee on what its grunting at it is saying "I don't like when you do that. I'm mad" If a rabbit is mounting another rabbit, the rabbit on top is saying "I'm the dominant rabbit. I'm in charge here." If the rabbit on the bottom is staying still, it is saying "I know you are in charge." If the rabbit on the bottom is trying to get on top, it is saying "You are not in charge, I am." If your rabbits are not fixed, these mounting behaviors might mean they are mating. If your rabbit has its ears flat back on its back and you are petting it and the rabbit is staying still, it is saying "That feels good. You are making me calm." If you stop petting your rabbit, and it nudges or nips you, it is saying " Why did you stop? Keep petting me." If your rabbit is laying down it is saying "I am tired. I am calm" If one rabbit is laying down in the same cage as another rabbit it is telling you "I feel calm with this other rabbit. They are not a threat. I can trust them." If two or more rabbits are laying very close to each other or next to each other, they are saying "This other rabbit is my buddy. I trust them very much." If one rabbit is grooming the other, it is saying " This rabbit is my friend."

What if you put a male rabbit in your females cage will the female still get pregnant?

I am not sure if you have worded your question correctly but I will try to answer anyway. Becarful of putting rabbits together that have not been raised together. The female put with a male rabbit will most likely get pregnant yes, however, have a hutch that can separate the male and female once the babies are born or the male will eat the male bunnies. If there is more than one female in the hutch when you put in the male the females may try and kill the male so it is best to pick one female and put with male separately from the other females. Hope that was helpful.

What is the name of the cage in which rats are kept?

There is no specific name for a cage for rats, its just based on what the housing is. So a cage for rats is just a cage. (Just like a hutch for rabbits is still a hutch even with no rabbits in)

Can rabbits stay in their hutch overnight and what can I do to keep predators out?

Rabbits can stay in their hutch overnight, so long as they're safe. Predators are only one danger about keeping rabbits outside -- other overnight dangers include bad weather (see the related question below for details), and parasites and insects; in the day, when you let them out, there's also toxic plants, pollutions, pesticides, bacteria in the dirt, and things like that to think about. There are also people out there who would break into your yard to tease or even hurt your rabbit! To protect your rabbit from predators, you need a very secure cage that other animals can't break into (including other people -- use a lock!). It helps to raise the cage off the ground. Chicken wire is very easy to rip through -- even a rabbit can rip through chicken wire (and cut himself up in the process). But, even if the predator can't get in, the rabbit is still at risk of stress -- rabbits can die of shock or heart attack just because a predator is stalking around outside the cage! So, you should provide something for the rabbit to escape and hide in -- like a box inside the hutch, or a part in the back of the hutch with no windows or bars so the predator can't see in.
