Indoor Starter Setup Shopping List

Today a friend of a friend told us that she was interested in raising meat rabbits and wanted to get started with a breeder pair. We told her that we would provide her with a shopping list of the minimum supplies needed for an indoor setup. The following list of supplies is what we are recommending. This list provides a 24 inch deep x 36 inch wide x 18 inch high cage for the doe and a 24 inch x 24 inch wide x 18 inch high cage for the buck along with rest pads, urine guards, trays, feeders, and water bottles. For the first litter, we are also recommending a medium nest box and a creep feeder. For those wondering what the miscellaneous hooks and springs are for, these are supplies that, after some trial and error, we have found to be very effective for keeping the nest box fixed in one place and for keeping the trays tight against the bottom of the cages to prevent urine going outside the trays. Without the latter little trick, we believe that none of the setups which are advertised for indoor use are actually feasible due to mess that quickly ensues. Thought we would share this shopping list in case others were interested in a similar starter setup.
