    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.
