Rabbit HousingRabbit house should be constructed in an elevated area for easy drainage and shaded area for the reduction of heat stress. The location should be free from dust, fumes, smoke, predator animals, etc. and should have easy access to water and electricity.
Rabbits can be reared in following three kinds of housing systems:
1. Cage System
2. Hutch System
3. Floor System
Cage system can vary in size but generally, they are of 4 Sq. Ft. with 18-inch height and made with welded wire mesh (16-18 gauge) with a hole size 4 by 4 inch. Cages should not be made with wood as rabbit chews and consume it and also difficult to clean as it absorbs urine, water, etc. Cages can also be kept in tier system (layer system) for efficient space and labor utilization.
