    We just got our first batch of rabbits and we are making up the cages. How high to we hang their water bottles and how high do we put their food tray (the kind that sticks through the side of the cage)?
    They are about 4-5 weeks old.
    Thanks in Advance

    Well I'm not sure about other growers, But I have NZW rabbits so I place the feeder at
    4 inches and the water valve at 6 inches..It works for me, I spend a lot of time in the barn and haven't heard any complaints..Good Luck

    What type of rabbits did you get?

    The feeders you have sound like j-feeders- Have wire bottoms so all the dust and fines fall through?
