Hey All!! I'm very new to colony-raising my rabbits. I cleaned out a stall in my barn and stapled rabbit wire around the bottom couple of feet to keep the little buggers from escaping. I then layed a thick layer of shavings and straw. I pitch out the straw and replace it with fresh every couple of days (it probably doesn't need to be done this often, but I'm a clean freak .:giggle:.) and replace the shavings as needed, usually when I notice they are wet or have an odor. I added a few wooden boxes to serve as nest boxes and I currently have 4 does and 1 buck living happily together. In the summer I plan to build something like a chicken tractor and allow my rabbits to go out onto my lawn and garden during the daytime hours. My question is this: when I was keeping my rabbits in cages, I kept many of my rabbit does in the same cages as my cavy sows, do you think I could house some of my cavy sows in the rabbit "colonies" or is this not a good idea? Do you think the buck would stand for this? Oh, and I only keep cavy sows, no boars. They are just pets, I don't breed them. Thanks!!
