Equipment

1. Use scientifically designed cages and equipment. The ideal guage for floor of the cage is 14-16 with a mesh size of 19×19 mm or 25×13 mm. The walls and roof can be constructed with lighter guage i.e. 16-20 with a mesh size of 25x25mm.

2. The feeders should be designed and placed in such a manner that the feed can be poured from outside and should be 5-7.5 cm. above the cage floor to avoid contamination by urine, faeces or water.The rim of the feeders should be round and turned inward ½” so that the rabbits do not spill the feed/water.

3. The watering equipment of 400-500 ml. capacity made up of aluminum, earthen or any other locally available cheaper material may be used.
