I need Rabbit nest boxes. Size and plans? Large breeds.....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have conflicting info on sizes.  I have large breeds (AM chins, NZ, Calis, and Satins) but I was looking at the nesting box I have...um....not big enough.  Today is day 27 and I was going to put it in tomorow at day 28.  Any one have any plans?  Or ideas?  Thanks!

Dogs, Nubian Dairy Goats, Chickens (too many types to list but my favs are the BR and Orps!), Rabbits (AM Chins, Satins, NZ, Cali) 1 Parakeet, and 1 Tortoise.

I'm planning to have DH make something like this: http://www.thenaturetrail.com/BuildingNestBoxes.htm (its beyond my woodworking skill atm).

I just googled for dimensions for my angora doe (got http://www.iagarb.com/angoracare.html).

This
will be my first time breeding rabbits, so we shall see how it goes tongue

1 easy-going husband, 3 great boys. 3 dogs (a GSD, a Rottweiler & a Brittany), 2 cats (a mouser & an old grump!).
2 hens (Dominique & Americana X banty), 6 chicks (3 SLW, 3 Americauna - hopefully girls!), 4 Indian Runner ducks & 2 Angora rabbits.
Wishlist: milk goats and a short, lazy horse.

a rabbit breeder I know says to make the boxes two inches longer and two inches wider than the doe is in her normal resting state.
