Ah, ok.They will definitely get through a hog panel.
Thanks! I knew they'd chew through chicken wire (I hate that stuff) so I'll look up those other two. Thanks again.If you're looking for cheap fencing, I've seen stucco wire used in a colony. Chicken wire they chew through. We used welded wire.
That would make sense. I was thinking like escapes and fights.I want to know why not also? My best guess would be parasites from being on the ground. The wild rabbits here are riddled with gross things, and it never gets cold enough to kill it off, so I won't touch them.
Uh, no. I haven't and never want to.All of the above including,rampent disease and canibalism. Ever see 3 does EAT another doe alive and her just sitting there in complete shock ?
They are very social from what I've read. The does can be VERY territorial though so either they grow up together or don't get along. So, I think if you have enough space they should be fine. Again, this is all just from what I've seen on BYC, BYH, and YouTube.From a non rabbiteer, I am curious if rabbits are solitary by nature. Do they enjoy each other's company for the most part or do they want their own space? Seems to me they'd be lonely in cages. But not knowing rabbits other than having a few as pets (who loved their buddies)... I don't know. I had two rabbits separated because I wasn't sure of gender and one dug a tunnel to get to the other one. Turns out they were both females. Found them all cuddled up in a corner. I have no plans to breed rabbits but if I ever did I would do a colony.
So not advice, just what I was thinking reading this thread.
