They have a name. Can’t remember what they’re called. They’re cool. Used without trays with a manure pit under them. A dutch breeder we know in Michigan has a top notch rabbit barn with manure pits. She goes so far as to have worms in the pits.

These are them. These ones even have nest boxes in the floors.

  Oregon State University was a rabbit research facility. They came up with this design of cages including the drop down nest box. They published a monthly newsletter for commercial interests. The authors of "Rabbit Production" worked there. One excellent book that has been upgraded in reprints over the years.

I've always wanted to make my hutches like that with the drop down nest boxes.  Nice!

If anyone is in the market, 4-H kids in Benton county could use some bidders.



There are at least 4 meat pens going up for auction.
