Getting Rabbits?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am getting rabbits!
Should I use a light bulb in the hutch at night?
What bedding should I use?

What food should I give them?

~Chick

21 chickens. 3 horses. 2 dogs. 1 cat.

I love to jump horses and kick up dirt 'round the cans!

Please read about my chick Owlet in her blog!

I love caring for special needs chickens and am considering starting a Special Needs Chicken Rescue.

Congrats! How old, what breed what purpose are you getting them for(Meat, pets, fur?)? I wouldn't (And don't) use a lightbulb in the hutch. We use hay and pine straw as bedding though a lot of people use pine shavings. As for food we give ours fodder and some pellets though they aren't fond of the pellets after getting a taste of fodder. We have rabbitats as well, we don't hutches. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We move them every few days.
