    Exterior nestboxes?

    I'm interested to hear of your experience with this setup. I wouldn't like not being able to get into the cage. One of the things I love about my dog crate cages is the doors are huge and I can practically crawl inside if I need to. Just in case you don't end up liking the set-up, you can...

    Its too hot

    About fans - I don't think fans are helpful in a lot of cases. Fans cool us because it evaporates the sweat. Rabbits don't sweat, so you can't cool them with evaporation. I'm more afraid that it would cause dehydration. If there is evaporative cooling and you need to move the cooler air...

    Its too hot

    Lows of 80s highs of 105 this week. My rabbits are in a covered L shape beside 2 outbuildings. Some breeze, but not much. I have 1/2 towel hung INSIDE the cage, about in the middle of the cage. I have a mister set up to spray into the cage on an interval timer (5 minutes every 15 or 30, from 9...

    Exterior nestboxes?

    Does this mean you have no access to the inside of the cage unless you take the basket off? Am I missing something? Do you have a second door? I would not like to be unable to access the interior of the cage. I handle my kits a lot :) it's the biggest perk of raising rabbits LOL. I must be...

    Exterior nestboxes?

    Will the weight on the door make the door sag or the hinge fail? Just something to consider. I have very heavy cages (metal dog crates) and hanging their 1/2 gallon water jugs on the door makes some of them more difficult to open/close.

    Any Suggestions For My Logo?

    I tend to sell 50/50 pets/meat. People in Texas don't seem to be put off by my asking do you want these for breeding or for pet. The only issue I've had with any of the pets I've sold is when I sold two females and one turned out to be a male. But, I actually made out on that one, I got the...

    Any Suggestions For My Logo?

    Exterior nestboxes?

    I would be more likely to cut a hole at the back or side of the cage and mount the nest box with a hinged top. You could either close it off when not in use, or make it removable with a door to seal the hole in the cage. The last time I had rabbits (in Callaway, VA), I built hutches with...

    Vent bleeding 9 day kit

    Is bleeding a normal or somewhat usual problem? Any idea what the cause is? Have you had this happen in the past or is this a new problem? I've never ever heard of this happening.

    Strange (to Me) Kit 🐰

    That's interesting, but she was perfectly clean. Just really wrinkly. I think she was just too small to get enough to eat the first couple days. There were 9 kits and she was the smallest. She's since caught up :)

    Strange (to Me) Kit 🐰

    Well, I don't think that's the case here - I can't even tell which one it was. I think it was the runt and she was just underfed at that point. She's fat & happy now :)
