  • Yes, you can keep a rabbit outside during the winter, but as always you should make sure the rabbit is protected from the elements as well as from predators. If you choose to keep you rabbit outside during the winter, remember that their body has to adjust to the climate, so try not to constantly bring your rabbit in and out too often because constant temperature changes will stress out your rabbit, and may make him or her sick. I hope this helps. For more great tips visit:
  • Rabbits can live outdoors through a pretty cold winter but they do need warm, dry, especially DRY, shelter. And it's sometimes hard to keep their water from freezing. During the warm weather we use the drip waterers but during the winters when it freezes, we use crocks and add give them fresh water each day. We rotate crocks so they can thaw out. If it's really cold and breezy, don't think of keeping your rabbits in a wire bottomed hutch as the breeze blowing up can chill your rabbits. And don't expect them to breed or raise young when it's really cold. To acclimate your rabbits to the cold make sure they go through their late summer molt outside, usually now, around august. This way they will get ready to grow a good heavy coat for the winter. If you bring an indoor rabbit to the outsie abruptly they haven't had the chance to develop a good heavy fur coat.
  • I always kept mine inside.
  • I had a rabbit in southern Ohio and we always kept him outside. He had a hut he could go into to protect him from wind and rain. It never hurt him any, he seemed to like it in fact.
  • My family had rabbits that lived oudoors all year. They burrowed in the summer so they had a place to go if they got cold. And their fur coat helps :-)
  • I used to keep my rabbits outside year round. I gave them a wood box for them to hide in incase it got cold and would give them straw in their boxes for insulation. rabbits will grow a winter coat if it is cold.I found my rabbits liked it alot better outside then in. but remeber to keep fresh water outside. I would water once in the morning and at night because otherwise the water froze.I also gave them their water in heavy bowls so when the water did freeze they could at least chew on the ice untill later on in the day they got more water. I also gave them corn in addition to the pellet feed.
