Breeding rabbits in pits - features and special factors
- 03 Aug 09:45
A person essentially likes to interfere with natural processes, and does so even in those cases when theunderstands,how wrong is thatAnd only in the 21st century, people decided that it's time to return to the original natural maintenance of animals.
Growing rabbits in pits is a rather painstaking process that requires a considerable amount of time and effort. But here the animals again find their natural immunity, they raise a number of internal characteristics, in addition, significantly increases survival. No wonder experienced rabbits in hopeless cases released their ears on the ground, and those often survived. But there are opponents of this method of growing rabbits, and most of their arguments are based on the ideas of self-conceived humanism( dogs can not be fed with bones and not cooked meat, cats should not eat mice, and rabbits should live up to old age in comfort).
Creating conditions for
The process of basic animal adaptation is quite complicated, therefore, it must be approached with all responsibility. For a pit is chosen such a place that from the bottom to the nearest aquatic horizon was not less than one meter of soil, t. To. Humidity should always be stable. Also, pits can not be made in flooded areas, so as not to drown out the ears of friends.
Another important factor is the first generation of all-in-one infections, but you always need to consult with a local good veterinarian, since illnesses in each locality go different. Resettlement of an adult from a cell into a pit, is equivalent to the resettlement of a person with a warm modern apartment in a hut in the middle of a forest, even without electricity. Young people did not have time to get used to comfort, so the new environment will not be too burdensome for them.
The retention of rabbits in a pit begins with their migration from cells, and only young individuals are used for 2-5 months, because adult animals are more difficult to adapt. Covered rabbits can in no case be placed in such conditions, because it will be irreparable to it for stress, which necessarily affects future children. Large breeds somewhat more difficult carry adaptation time than average, but they also get used very quickly.
Life at will makes meat more qualitative, but the animals themselves are noticeably smaller. To do this you need to be ready, but you should not be afraid, because now it's absolutely normal.
But there is also a point about which it is desirable to worry in advance - this is the process of breeding. Yamna rabbits contain independent reproduction, that is, the process of breeding will be very fast and very productive, but after some time all individuals will become relatives with each other. In order to avoid genetic damage, care must be taken to treat males, which are replaced as needed.
Pros and Cons of the
Method In order to grow rabbits in the pit over time, the costs will be minimized, and at times and will at all be reduced to 1-2 hours a day. If everything is done qualitatively and the breeds are picked up well, then the rabbits breeding in the pits will give the following advantages:
- arrangement of the pit costs very cheap, even when compared with cells( all the unnecessary material that does not have sharp edges that can injure rabbits will work);
- with a sufficiently massive launch( 10-20 families), the sow will be enormous, with all the individuals will already be sufficiently viable and active in terms of development;Cleaning the
- is much less common than in the cells, as part of the emptying will go into the soil;
- freedom of movement affects not only immunity, but also the quality of meat;
- rabbits in pits do not suffer from "domestic" sister diseases like obesity and pododermatyte;
- breeding in pits makes animals more cohesive, so together they are able to resist unwanted guests;The
- process of pregnancy and childbirth is also greatly simplified, besides, human intervention is no longer required at all.
Breeding rabbits in the pits of the is not only positive, but also negative points. All of them are completely avoided, but you need to be prepared in advance for each of the possible:
Creating a home for eared
Before you make holes for rabbits, you need to know all the nuances of their erection, because a well-made pit will last for at least an entire age without additional human intervention. A lot of them do in their own basement, which is very convenient, but if there is a possibility of development of a rabbit farm, it is better to dig a separate pit.
The basic preparation for breeding rabbits is as follows:
After digging a hole for rabbits with your own hands, you should equip the bottom part for easy cleaning. From below, a sand-tray is made, and from the top it is tensed by a fine-grained grid, on which the straw falls. Then you can release rabbits for breeding.
Launching the life of
In order to make the process of adaptation for further breeding as comfortable as possible, it is initially desirable to "rent" the rabbits already familiar to such a way of life. If this is not possible, then you can begin the settlement of 10-20 individuals on the first day, and in the next 2-3 days, the remaining 100-200.
Despite the generally accepted view of low intelligence, rabbits have a very sophisticated sense of comfort. In a few days they will realize that a large pit is much freer and more interesting than in a small cell, besides, there is a large company. But there will be their complications with the division of territory and mutual clarification of relations. It is better not to interfere here, if there are not particularly serious fights, but otherwise it will have to invent something with especially aggressive rabbits, because to leave them for breeding will no longer make sense.
Sometimes rabbits in the breeding process have an unpleasant situation when animals do not want to dig their holes. To do this, at the very beginning, a special depression at a height of 10-12 cm is made in the pit, but it is not always effective. It is not necessary to be especially frustrated here, because in one of the following generations rabbits will still begin to appear, which will actively engage in this, and in a few years there will not be any rabbits that can not make mink.
Try somehow on their own to help or even to strengthen mink with clay in vain. It is better to put it on the gravity, because natural instincts themselves will rise, but at this time it is better to do basic training. Breeding on this will not stop.
The main process of the life of
But the main process, as bred rabbits in the pits, need to know the latest nuance. The most important thing is to work with males, since they have no idea that you can not interact with your offspring. They literally after 1 year of rabbits need to be changed to new, and from the old safely get rid of. The most optimal option is to maintain connections with other rabbits and banal equivalent exchange, due to which there will be no losses, but the tribe will always be perfect.
The most cost-effective method of raising rabbits is the abandonment of the young, while the outdated generation is beaten or sold. With regular exchanges of rabbits with other farmers, this approach will yield truly non-slippery results, besides, the profit will increase very tangibly.
There are 5 factors to be observed regardless of the terrain:
Rabbit catching in pit
For many inexperienced rabbits, successful breeding stops at the catch stage. Here the process becomes truly unbearable, because with insensibility the animals begin to produce reflexes for self-preservation.
For this purpose, there is a very simple rule - the host must associate with the exit team, that is, clearly with food. For this you can use a bright light, whistle, creak, or any notable mink factor. Training this way can start from the first day, which makes breeding considerably simpler. This approach will allow you to easily assemble all animals in one place, and later there will be the ability to catch them.
If you already have the skill and not enough, you can put on each mink the traps are closed so that the rabbits were extremely limited in moving. At the site 2 * 2 m to catch a few animals will not be difficult even in a sedentary man.
Under this simple series of basic rules, no person will have problems in the process of breeding. It is very important to treat carefully all the factors so that the rabbits can always feel expansive, but at the same time they were under full control.
