I recently inherited 5 meat rabbits and I’m learning as I go. I prefer all wire cages and I’m in the process of building my first double cage for the two bucks. I’m leaning toward cage doors that hinge on the bottom and drop down. All of my cages will be single tier.
My question is: has anyone ever made a top opening cage? Why or why not?

Thanks for any input!

I don't have rabbits, but I use similar cages for chickens.
I like the top door.
I cut my wire pieces to size and clip the edges together with what we call are pig nose rings.
You can get the rings and the tool very..very inexpensive. You don't need the tool. but if you are going to be making more than just one or two cages, it makes it more convenient.

Our cages are more like rabbit tractors. We move them every couple of days.

We are pondering putting wire on the bottom, too, which will impede their grazing, but will prevent escapees. This pic is the third day of the Cannonbunny Run. She is sitting next to my cucumber fence
