Hi all I am new here, I will run over to the introduce yourself thread after I post this to introduce my self I found the site while searching for rabbit colony ideas, but don't worry i have chickens too! While thinking of different pen styles I came up with this, and am wondering what others think I have meat mutts. I will have (3) 1/4+ acre pens for my goats, fenced with 5ft woven wire. A light went off in my head, put the rabbits in with the goats! So here is my "first draft idea" I literally just came up with this 1 hour ago. -12 inches of chicken wire along the bottom -5ft tall woven wire main fence -an area where the rabbits are fed and watered, but the goats can't get into -(a corner fenced with woven wire that has chicken wire all around it but in one hole so the rabbits could come in and out but could easily be locked in). -hidey boxes/dens in several places over the field that the goats could climb on and the rabbits could hide under to escape from predators or the goats I would shut the hole in the feed pen while they were eating if I want to catch some. if any were to become "uncatchable" they would be left if not causing issues -(making others hard to catch) or I could turn my basset hound in the pen to run it (he hasn't been trained just has good instinct to run, normally doesn't kill) hopefully into a hidey box or the corner feed pen, if that didn't work I could shoot it while it is in the pen. This pen would be for adults or future breeders 6 weeks + when a doe is to be bred she is captured in the feeding pen and put in the buck cage (a large cage, like a small colony with only 1 animal) we would have to find a way to mark them some how (tattoo ??) so we would know to move them to the "kitting colony" at 26 days. Kitting Colony . -chain link floors -chicken wire 12in -netting roof -nesting boxes. - not for sure on size I would probably want to be able to have 3-6 does in the pen at a time they would be held their until weaning at 6 weeks, where some would go into grow out colony's (doe/buck) and any keepers would go into the goat/rabbit pen Grow out Colony's hold kits from 6 weeks until 12 weeks- butcher age does in one bucks in the other (side by side) 10x10? 10x15? chain link floor netting roof So what do you think ? With 1/4+ acres I don't think the rabbits would have to much of a chance of getting hurt. Thanks for any replies !
