water supply

Post by span870 » Fri Mar 27, 2015 9:23 pm

Guys with pens, what do you guys use for water for rabbits. My pen is on a hill and very heavy limestone about 8 inches to a foot so a pond is out. Does not hold water at all.

Rabbits get all the moisture they need from plants and dew. If you want a source, how about a kid's sliding saucer or plastic toboggan?

I use a black rubber tub from Tracter Supply, only about 4 in. tall, I run my rabbits hard and make sure they have plenty of moisture during the hot, dry season. My trail cam shows that they use it.
Thanks,

I cut a 55gal plastic barrel in half the long way and buried it in the ground.

Glen Johnston swears that a wild cottontail will die before they will drink from a water source, so I put a camera by my pond, in my 8 acre pen and they visit the waters edge regularly. But I haven't seen their tung in the water, so I'd give them water! Lol
