Cells are single and double. One adult animal is laid at a rate of 0.5 square meters of area, for young animals - 0.12 square meters, and for young rabbits - 0.17.
The length of a two-seater single-tiered cell is from 220 to 240 centimeters, and the width is 65 centimeters. The height of the back wall is 35 centimeters, the front - 50 centimeters. The one-pitch roof ends with a visor projecting forward by 20 centimeters, and from the sides - by 10 centimeters. From the sides there are nesting compartments with a solid floor, and in the stern section the floor is made of a grid of 16x48 or 18x18 centimeters, or of two-centimeter wooden slats stuffed in half a centimeter. Laz in the nest department is made at a height of 15 centimeters from the floor, so that the rabbits could not get into the stern compartment.
Doors in the stern compartment are made of a net, and in the nest - solid. On the mesh doors, drinkers and removable feeders are hung. Rough forages are usually distributed in a nursery made of two mesh-framed wooden frames. The upper ends of the frames are extended to the sides of the stern compartments, and the lower ones are combined.
Cages for rabbits built with their own hands for keeping young animals, represent a wooden frame, upholstered by wood from behind and from the sides. Front grid and floor are made of metal mesh. The size of cells for young animals depends on the number of animals that will be there. Usually the cells make 2-4 meters in length and one meter in width. The height of the front wall is 0.5 meters, the back is 0.4 meters. The front wall has two doors, they are hung up with drinkers and feeders, as well as nursery for grass or hay. The roof is made of wood, ahead should be a visor measuring 30 centimeters. In the cells should be the rabbit of the same age, weight and sex, as well as temperament.
To keep the males make round cells from the grid with a diameter of 75 centimeters and 40 centimeters in height. In such cells you can keep and females. The floor is made either from a grid or from wooden slats.
