A Look at our Rabbitry
These cages hold our bucks. The first two cages hold Timmy and Jasper and the third one is where we would put a buck we were keeping for show or hadn't sold yet. The cages are furnished with wooden hay feeders, big metal J-style gravity feeders, attached hutch-boxes on the back, a board to lay on, a "perch" for them to sit on, and either metal water dishes or 16 oz water bottles. (Not shown in this picture: tarps that shield the rabbits from rain, wind, and snow.)

These cages are "breeding cages" but we don't actually breed our rabbits in them, they are actually for rabbits that are pregnant and have litters. The mothers and these litters stay in here until the babies are 8 weeks old. Also, sometimes, depending on the breeding schedule, part of the litter may stay in that cage after the mother is put back in her cage and the litter is separated by sex. The cages are furnished with with large wooden hay feeders, big metal J-style gravity feeders, attached extra big hutch-boxes on the back, a board to lay on, and either metal water dishes, 16 oz water bottles, 32 oz water bottles, or a heated water bottles (all dependent on litter size and season). During the winter we have heat lamps to help keep the babies warm.
