How to Build a Rabbit Shed? Such a question arises in rabbits and in the planning, as a small rabbit farm, and large farms. For thesuccessful breeding, you need a good room, good nutrition and animal care.
At present, such breeds of rabbits that are well tolerated by cold( with the exception of very cold frosts) are derived. But in addition to frost, there are other threats. Direct sunlight and high temperatures also have a negative effect on the animals. In addition, rabbits need oxygen, and therefore it is recommended to keep them in the fresh air, but, on the other hand, the moisture and drafts are categorically contraindicated. All this should be taken into account when keeping rabbits.
Rabbit Maintenance Options
There are three variants of keeping rabbits, namely:
Basically in Europe, in those places where the climate is even, and there is no sharp enough difference of temperatures, furry animals are contained in open enclosures. This way of keeping animals is considered to be the optimal work.
True, there is a combined option - that is, the use of both cells and aviary in different seasons.
In our country, the most common variant of keeping rabbits is the cells. This method is a very convenient option, since it allows you to keep and feed animals rationally.
If the cells combine and build rabbits for sleds, then you can get additional benefits, since the sheds are a complex consisting of several tiers of cells that are equipped with manual or automated harvesting systems, water supply and feed.

The principle of keeping rabbits in the harnesses
The classic version of the shell is a series of cells located on both sides of the passage. Basically, such a structure consists of two tiers, but there are also three-tier buildings. They are mounted vertically or cascade, at the discretion of the owner.
Under no circumstances should the bottom row of cells be placed on the floor. The distance to it should be about 60 centimeters.
The structure of the shell is a wooden or metal frame, enclosed in a grid. The size of each cell is individual( depending on the breed), different for young adult rabbits. When planning, take into account that in the standard shield, half the cells are given for females, and the other part - for adult males and rabbits.
The most common option is a shield size of 30-50 meters in length and 3 meters in width. If you want to create a small farm, then adjust the sizes as you wish.
The industrial building has an automated supply of feed, water and manure. The owner remains to monitor the condition of the livestock and provide timely maintenance.
Basically, if the farm is planned on a small scale, then the shoots are reduced independently. True, some of the work in the future is made manually, but it is possible to automate some of the processes.

Materials needed for the construction of additions
Basically create standard cells for one rabbit. The minimum size of the cell is for young animals up to 60 cm long and up to one meter wide. For adult pets or females with rabbit-bacon, cells with a width of 60-80 cm and a height of 40 cm are created
. Mostly cells are taken with galvanized mesh with cells measuring 25x25 or 16x48 mm. The floors, in any case, do not make metal, as the animals can damage the delicate paws. They are made of wood or rails, sometimes you can find a plastic version.
Remember that cells need to be made with pull-down, easy-cleaning pallets that are designed to collect manure. It is strictly forbidden to concrete floors to avoid accumulation of stools.
The front wall is equipped with a feeder and feeder. To facilitate work, you can equip automated drinkers and non-waste bunker feeders that fill up once a week. True, self-winding machines are intended only for the warm season, as in the winter, water should be heated.
It is recommended to place daylight lamps and calorifiers in a shade so that the temperature and light regime are optimal for rabbits.
The walls are recommended to be made of slate or wood. The roof is best covered with flat asbestos-cement sheet. By the way, from it also often produced walls. The entrance is made of a grid, just remember that the whole design makes the airtight. And let's keep in mind the most important thing: all shelters must be equipped with special channels for drainage of manure.
The passage is made with a small slope in the sides of the cell rows. . The passage must be at least two meters. At the end of the room, they must make room for inventory storage and other purposes. Do not forget about the windows that will provide lighting.
The ventilation of the shaft is natural, through the pits of the pus channels. In the duct channels drainage or sand pillow.
For daylight color lighting. They will allow you to create additional lighting in the room. Additional heating can be provided with fitted heaters.
In the summer, it is desirable that the shade is covered with glass transom, thereby providing additional lighting and ventilation. But in the winter season of the year, it is desirable to coat everything with a tree and cover with a film.
It is desirable for cells to be equipped with bunker non-waste feeders, which are loaded with feed one week ahead. Usually fed rabbits with granulated feed. The bunker feeder can be made from a sheet of iron or other suitable materials.
In the summer period, automatic drinkers are used. Between each two cells a nursery with hay or grass is installed.
Rabbit feces are cleaned manually or with the help of flip-flops. The temperature mode in the shell should be higher than the outside. So that rabbits do not wet the rain, the roof is maximally sealed.
