I am considering moving to Harrison ar area and would like to grow rabbits again , I am concerned with how we keep the rabbit comfortable in the summer with all the heat , I currently live in pacific northwest where in not that hot and hummid
Shade, Air circulation, and breeding/culling for heat tolerance(light color,large slightly lopped ears). For a smaller rabbit herd you could provide frozen water bottles in the cages on hot days. We have also used irrigation misters under the cages to create a cooler micro climate around the cages. These misters pointed down and watered the vermi-composting beds under the rabbits. We grew comfortable rabbits and lots of worms.
I'm not sure simple chicken wire around the perimeter would keep either predators out or your bunnies in. My dogs have knocked the screen door right off the tracks, so I know they could misshape some chicken wire in a hurry. And rabbits being diggers by nature...
Almost all designs for rabbit tractors I've seen include a sturdy floor of wire, which gives better security and strength to the structure. Hope that helps!
When I saw it, I considered it well; I looked on it and received instruction. - Proverbs 24:32
I live in MS and have been researching rabbit breeding. I just read about a possible solution to summer infertility. (due to their heat intolerance) I haven't looked into the cost yet. The details are in the attachment if you are interested.
