Thank you!miss_thenorth said:There is an animal farm near me, who has their rabbits living in a colony type setting. I know for a fact that they have more than one doe living together, as well as more than one buck. I think it has to do with the amount of space--they have their requirements. If you looked up colony raised rabbits, you might be able to come up with some more info. Eventually, I would like to provide my bunns with a colony type setting, but it will take planning and space. so for now, my bunns livie in cages, with some "free play": time as offered by my dd.
:/ That is tragic. Sorry to hear about that.currycomb said:when we first relocated the rabbits here after having them in my old place, we kinda did the colony thing in a dog pen. it worked well, each doe had its territory all ate together, etc.( had a buck in with them by mistake) when it came time for them to have their babies, instinct took over and they dug borrows, all over. those turned into connecting tunnels, until a heavy rain. don't know how many babies might have been lost, all the moms escaped, either into the pen or ouside in the wide wonderful world. caught some when they moved in under the chicken house, others were never seen again. so, be sure they cannot tunnel out from where ever you house them.
