Any cage designed for rabbits must be equipped in a certain way. It necessarily contains the following parts:
- The skeleton and the supports on which the whole structure rests are made of wood bars. To keep rabbits protected from rodents, cats and dogs when kept outside, their cage should be placed at a height of about 70 cm from the ground.
- Walls are made of plywood, boards or mesh. For beauty, you can trim the walls outside plastic or wooden slats. For the convenience of cell care in front parts make two doors (one from the grid, the other from the board).
- Floor most often made of slats or grid. Separate breeders arrange a solid floor, only in the back of the set a grid to remove waste through it. There are adherents of different materials who, in their own experience, learn what is best for animals kept in different conditions.

When creating cages for rabbits it is not recommended to use metal. In the heat, iron is heated, which is inconvenient for animals, and in the cold they can easily be frozen to such a coating. Even when creating the simplest cage for rabbits with your own hands, you need to make sure that all the details are smooth and not traumatic. Any defects in the mesh should be eliminated, and the wood should be treated with sandpaper.
Even an inexperienced amateur breeder can build such a cage with his own hands.
