post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

If anyone has any pics of their rabbit nesting boxes, can you please post it or describe what kind of nesting boxes you have for your rabbits, including the measurements.

Thanks

Oh, I love that nesting box.  Where did you get it from?

We built it ourselves. I don't know what shipping would be but if you're ever interested we'd be happy to make one for you or anyone interested. We also drill small holes in the bottom for drainage and sand every corner and edge. It's a lot of fun to build!

I used a cat carrier, plastic. Worked well because they could get in and out easily. It broke apart easily and I didn't have to move the nest when I transported the babies.

Thank you for the offer.  I have some but was curious to see what others are using . I may need a couple more but I have a lot of recycled materials, to build more.  Thanks again.

I thought about using a small cat carrier.

Make sure you put your nestbox in a few days early so she can build her nest.

Well we need to help you figure out what to do?  What were you planning on using?
