    Goat feed for rabbits

    So look at the ingredients and nutrient analysis of goat feed and rabbit feed and the only downfall is the fiber %. If I supplemented with sunflower seeds for fiber would that be enough? The feed I'm after is 17% protein min. and Im doing it because its cheaper and also they have 20% goat feed...

    How to stop/minimize this

    Rabbit poo too large for the holes and if I don't catch it quick enough it's a sucky pile to clean up. I feed all pellets and it seems to only be a problem during dry off periods

    Colony for the summer

    Yes I'm thinking 2 10x20 areas and I sell them live weight so it sounds like it might be a good venture..I mainly want to feed more hay since I won't have to worry about it clogging up my cages and get a small boost off my already 13 doe setup

    New Mother not Nursing

    Rabbits I. The wild will dig a small hole then cover it with grass and other things to mask it..she's doing the same thing and would probably like to go through the holes she should be able to unblock what she's put in the pipes no problem

    Pump for water filled trays

    A lot of my trays are filling with water since installing the automatic watering system. Does anybody have a good pump that can pump this water through a small hose into a bucket? I've tried a couple but they all get clogged with fur or manure.

    Dirty fryers

    So they're going today what would be the fastest way to clean them up without hurting them? They'll be processed in max 2 days so do I really have to worry about the after effects of not washing them properly (of course still making sure they're bone dry after) have 8 rabbits to clean

    Light schedule for faster growth

    I heard some animal raisers leave the lights on 24/7 for faster growth. Wondering if rabbits are more active at night would they have faster growth if you have them less light and more darkness?
