Wa­ter­ing

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Feature Rabbit Housing -

Wa­ter bot­tles cost a fair bit. You also need to check that the ball bear­ing is not stuck, and re­fill them daily.

A cheap al­ter­na­tive is to use large 2-litre tins (I got some from the lo­cal take­away shop). If you make a small hole just be­low the rim you can wire the tin to the wall of the cage. Old lunch boxes work well too.

An­other op­tion is an au­to­matic wa­ter sys­tem where pipes run through each cage and are con­nected by tub­ing to a large bucket for a reser­voir. This works well if you have your rab­bit cages in a shed or in a long line.

What­ever sys­tem you choose, check the wa­ter daily, and clean wa­ter­ers out weekly.
