Rabbits' New Digs
This weekend David and I built a new structure for the rabbit cages. The rabbits have been in the barn until now, and it is just getting too warm in there. I've been wanting to hang their cages for a while, and we finally got it done! I'm so excited. We built it using lumber that was already here (most of it from a project my dad built for us, which I haven't blogged about yet). I think we did pretty well for not really planning anything. I wish the plywood roof covered more, but I think it'll function fine like it is.
The structure we built is the taller one. We already had the other hutch, where Radish, my buck, lives.
We didn't have any chain, and I really wanted to get the rabbits outside today, so we used the same bunkbed frame the cages were resting on in the garage, and just hung it with rope for now.
The rabbits seem to really like it. The babies are growing so fast. They just started coming out of the nesting box and exploring. Today they were munching on some hay and other plants (every day I pull a big handful of leaves and grass for the rabbits).
I think it's a big improvement from being in the barn.
