A good rabbit house is very important for rabbit farmers, because only rabbits can eat and sleep well in it. After all, it will grow well, and the price of long and good rabbits will come up naturally. Therefore, a good rabbit house is the beginning of success.
Types and selection of rabbit houses
There are three types of rabbit house buildings: closed type, semi open type, open type and shed type. According to the form of roof, the common rabbit houses can be divided into flat slope type, double slope type, flat roof type, arch type, bell tower type and half bell tower type. In addition, according to the arrangement of rabbit cages, it can be divided into single row, double row and multi row.
1. The single row rabbit house has better ventilation and illumination, convenient operation and less environmental pollution, but the unit cost is high and the floor area is large.
2. There are two rows of rabbit cages in the double row rabbit house, and the cage doors are face-to-face and back-to-back. The rabbit cage is overlapped by 3 layers. Face to face rabbit cages, a 0.7 m wide fecal and urine cleaning ditch is set behind the rabbit cages, and a 1.2-1.5 m wide corridor is set in the middle. A 1.0-meter-wide fecal ditch and a 1.2-meter-wide corridor are set between the two rows of rabbit cages back-to-back. The back of the cage can be used as the back wall of the double row rabbit house. The rabbit house has good ventilation, sufficient light, cool in summer, warm in winter, and the unit cost of cage position is lower than that of the single row type.
3. There are three or four rows of cages in the multi row rabbit house. This kind of rabbit house has high utilization rate and good heat preservation performance. However, the ventilation and light transmission of this kind of rabbit house are not ideal, and the air pollution in the house is serious, which is not conducive to the breeding and disease control of breeding rabbits.
Construction of rabbit house
The wall of rabbit house is made of brick, and the interior wall is painted white or light color. The roof slope can adopt herringbone roof truss. The height of the lower edge is not less than 2.5 meters. The width of the door is 1.2-1.5 meters, and the height is 2 meters. The window can be made into a glass window with width × height = 1.5 meters × 1.5 meters, and the glass windows are placed 70-75 cm above the ground. The ground has a certain slope, and the dung ditch is made into a moon arc with a slope of 1.0% - 1.5%.
