I live in East Texas, and the heat has reached themid 90s this week. I lost two rabbits (I'm guessing to heat) on Thursday. I hung a box fan and am putting frozen gallon jugs in their cages and it seems to be helping....but....they are not eating well (I have fed 16% rabbit booster....not really a booster, the tag says its the same as the other feeds my feed store sells thats just its name, and have fed it for several months with no problems) and they REFUSE to drink their water. I thought maybe the water was heating up so I'm now filling the bottles half full and putting them in the frezzer (like I do my water jugs when I'm out building fence) and then filling them the rest of the way with cold water and putting them out there but theyre STILL not drinking from the bottles!!! Instead they are licking and chewing through the frozen gallong plastic jugs. WEIRD. Can anyone think of anything else I can do or anything I can add to the water bottles to make them want to drink from them ???? This is new....theyve never not drunk from their bottles before....this is a new thing. Is there something I can do or have my rabbits just gone heat stupid???? p.s. They are in a "rabbit loafing shed" and have access to shade all day. I'm going to hang blinds tomorrow to see if that makes any difference. Thanks All!!!
