Rabbit Nest Box Size?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a NZ and a Cali doe due this week.  Both of these rabbits are 10+ pounds.  I still need to get a nest box made and put in their cages. 

What size nesting box is best for this size rabbit.  All three dimensions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Thanks.  I had read to make it two inches longer and wider than the size of the doe, but wasn't sure.  The funny thing is that I was thinking about making it 18"x10"x10" before I asked this question.  I was pretty close.

Thanks again.

Mine are 10 x 13 x 18 and the front board is 6 inches high. Good for my satins and my WNZ.
