Rabbit want to expand the scale? Rabbit cage is critical


Rabbit cage layers


It can be divided into single-layer cage, double-layer cage and multi-layer cage. There are many one-layer rabbit cages abroad. The single-cage rabbit cannot use the ground economically. The four-layer rabbit cage is too high and difficult to operate. It is suitable for two or three cages. 2 meters. The bottom of the first floor should not be too low from the ground, at least 25 cm. The depth of the cage is convenient for catching rabbits, which is 60 cm.


The height of the rabbit cage is high, which is conducive to the growth and development of the rabbit body, but the total height should not exceed 2 meters. If the cages are divided into three layers, the height of each cage should not exceed 40 cm. If two layers of rabbit cages are built, the height of each layer can reach 50-60 cm.

Divide the assembly arrangement according to the cage


It can be divided into flat rabbit cages, overlapping rabbit cages and stepped rabbit cages (including half-ladder rabbit cages and full-ladder rabbit cages).


Ladder Rabbit Cage: This type of rabbit cage is arranged in a ladder shape in the rabbit house. First, the trapezoidal support frame is made of angle iron, cold plate, cement prefab, wood and other materials, and the rabbit cage is placed on each support frame. The front wall of the cage is open, the trough, water dispenser, etc. are on the front wall, and the feces are dug out under the shaped cage.



Rabbit feces and urine in each cage leaked directly into the feces. The bottom of the ditch is W-shaped, and the rabbit cage is usually made of metal mesh and bamboo cage bottom. The main advantages of the rabbit cage are good ventilation, easy to observe, gnaw, easy to keep the cage clean and dry, make full use of the surface area, easy to manage, and save manpower; its disadvantages are high cost, and the metal cage is easy to rust.


Flat-column rabbit cages are single-layer, usually made of bamboo or galvanized cold-drawn steel wire, and can be divided into single-row and double-row. Its main advantages are favorable for feeding management and ventilation, comfortable environment and low concentration of harmful gases. The disadvantage is that the feeding density is low and it is only suitable for breeding and breeding rabbits.


Overlapping rabbit cages Overlapping rabbit cages are widely used in the production of long-haired rabbits. It consists of prefabricated cement or brick structures. Typically, 2-4 layers of cages are stacked and manure boards are laid. The main advantages are good ventilation and lighting and a small footprint. The disadvantage is that it is difficult to remove feces and high concentrations of harmful gases.

Ladder-shaped rabbit cages are usually welded with galvanized cold-drawn steel wires. In the assembled arrangement, the upper and lower layers of the cage are completely displaced, no fecal plates are provided, and feces and urine fall directly into the feces.


The main advantages are high density and good ventilation. The disadvantage is that it occupies a large area and it is difficult to remove feces by hand.
