    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

    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.

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