Rabbit feeders use gravity to maintain the availability of food for rabbits in their hutch. Most feeders have a lid, into which the owner pours the food. The food travels down a hopper and into the opening in the bottom, where the rabbits can access it. Some feeders also have holes on the bottom to prevent moisture buildup, which can cause soggy food. Rabbit feeders easily hook onto the top of the hutch.
Things You'll Need
Lift the lid of the rabbit hutch. Lower the rabbit feeder into the hutch.
Place the two hooks on the back of the feeder over the top edge of the rabbit hutch. If you have a metal wire cage, you can also place the hooks over any of the wire strats if you need to adjust the level of the feeder.
Look through the front of the hutch to see if the rabbit feeder is low enough for the rabbits to have easy access. If it is not, remove the hooks. Hold the feeder in the spot where you want it. Lift the hooks and mark where they hit the side of the hutch with a pencil. Drill two holes through your marks, then slide the hooks through the holes.
Lift the lid of the rabbit feeder and fill it with food. Replace the feeder lid, then replace the lid of the hutch.
