While constructing our cages, we are guided by animal rights measuring of 2ftx2ftx2ftx2ft x2.5ft. This spacing is enough because the longest rabbit is 2.5ft.
After eating, rabbits usually stretch. They, therefore, need enough space for exercising. This enables the rabbit to live in comfort.
This is important because when exporting, the European markets only buy standard products.
As a farmer, you need to understand that standards considered in the international market include good housing, management and food quality.
It is not advisable to construct metallic cages because they attract a lot of heat and coldness, depending on the weather conditions.
However, if you are to use metallic cages, use galvanised metals because they control temperature. Wooden cages are the best because they are readily available and maintenance costs are cheaper than for metallic ones.
You can learn more by visiting farmers who keep rabbits.
How should a good structure for rabbits look like?
The structure must not be as open as the one for chicken. It should not allow direct aeration into the rabbits area because it is not good for kittens.
It is better the rabbit cages are put inside another structure and not outside.
Rabbits are territorial animals. If you enclose two bucks in the same cage, they will castrate themselves in the fight for the territory.
Therefore, each buck should be in its own cage.
