The blue barrel is the feeding area. The green bin has been turned into a strawberry planter. Have chicken wire on top of greenhouse to keep birds of prey out. And have chicken wire on the ground along all 4 sides before I brought the dirt in with a tipper truck & bobcat. So far none have escaped & they ❤️ Running around and jumping and have almost eaten everything in their area. The other side is starting to grow greens now.

That's quite a bit of dirt with no grass

Are you talking about rabbits or people and to answer that question no to rabbits and no to me 😊 all jabs are a money making industry for CEO’s of pharma. I like to invest my money on herbs to heal myself & rabbits.
I was meaning the rabbits against RVHD. But you do you. :) everyone has their own approach.

Great video thanks mine follow me around the enclosure and I have to be careful not to step on them
Lol me too, and I actually stepped on a pregnant doe the other day. I was taking a step and she moved under my foot, so I had no choice but to bite the dust and fall rather than put my weight on her back lol

It was 2 tipper trucks of dirt. I’m planting grass & herbs for them to eat on one side when it’s growing good I’ll put the rabbits in the green side then go to work planting greens on the used side
I was just thinking this morning that I'd like to make frames of 2x4 boards... maybe (8'x2') and staple hardware cloth on one side. then set them along the edges of my chicken yard and sow through the h/w cloth with grass, herb, etc. seed. The chickens took about a day and a half to obliterate every green thing from their rather large run when I put them in there several years ago and I'd like to give them something nice and fresh to eat. Maybe that would work for your rabbit colony, too.

Look at that snow! Don’t have that here. In fact during the summer I freeze 2 litre bottles of water and put into their cages so they can curl up to them to keep cool.
Lol, mine have burrows as well as the warrens I have made them. We get 90-100 f here in summer and -40 in winter but the Rabbits love it especially winter.
