    Hi,
    I have lost all my links for rabbits sites as well as everything else. I know i read this on a site - but can anyone tell me how tall a fence needs to be so that a rabbit can't jump over it? Many thanks if you know. I am having a temp fence made so that the new rabbit can run about the back-yard until Pickles and he become friends. I need to let the guy who made my run know how high it needs to be.
    Thanks,
    jacqui x

    Id say 4ft.

    Lottie can clear 3ft no problem. But she is quite big, and built a bit like a hare.

    I would not go any lower than 3'6 as I have rabbits jumping any lower than this.
