I came across this document on the Net while searching for an idea of how to keep our rabbits cool in this hot Kentucky summer . . . Great ideas, nice concise read with illustrations. Italian breeders got there before me and did all the brainwork.

We are moving to Arizona from Oregon soon, and I have been debating all week how to incorporate a smart underground design for rabbits in the desert. This might just be the ticket, thank you for sharing!

Abe Connally here has done something similar, but I like the writeup you found.

The Finzi system is awesome. We use a similar system with buried brick houses and hanging external cages. We can breed right through the winter.

Here's a description form when we built the system: http://velacreations.com/blog/352-rabbit-dwelling.html
