Hello

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Aquaman05 » Thu Apr 14, 2016 9:29 pm


Hello everyone! I'm just getting started in rabbits. My daughter is wanting to show this year in 4H so I've been scrambling to get things ready. I'm turning a 12x8 shed into her rabbit house. There will be cages in it and trying to set it up so they can have play time in the floor. I'm looking for info on what feed I should use ? I will have 3 rabbits and they will be about 7-8 weeks old.
Thanks for helping !!

Ive fed Purina pellets as choices are very limited in my area

Since your rabbits are young they need at least 16% protein in their ration but for meat rabbits 18% promotes faster growth

Welcome!

You might get suggestions more specific to your area if you add your location to your info.

I'd love to hear more about the shed plans.

Yes, please add you location. It doesn't have to be specific, something like SW Arizona is fine. It just gives us an idea of what your climate is like since so many rabbit questions depend on your climate.
