A roof is a must and very important to protect the rabbit from the rain and direct sunshine, unless you place it under house roof such as on the porch. Solid walls or at least hutch cover is required to protect from the strong wind and in winter time.

It should also give protection against predators such as dogs, snakes, hawks and others. The roof, the walls and the floors should be tight enough to prevent the predators to get through into the hutch. It’s also important there’s a hiding place in part of the hutch for the rabbit to hide from something frightening him, to feel secure. If such area doesn’t exist you may place a nest box or any box inside the hutch.
