What kind of rabbit cage do rabbits live in the most comfortable
What kind of rabbit cage rabbits live in the most comfortable. The design and construction of the rabbit house should conform to the biological characteristics of rabbits, be conducive to environmental control, sanitation and epidemic prevention, facilitate breeding and management, and improve labor efficiency; the construction of the rabbit house should consider the input-output ratio.
The selection of materials should be adapted to local conditions and local materials should be selected. On the premise of meeting the biological requirements of rabbits, minimize the investment in order to reduce construction costs.
First, the materials. The building materials of the rabbit house, especially the rabbit cage, should be sturdy and durable to prevent it from being bitten and damaged by rabbits; measures should be taken to prevent rabbits from burrowing and escaping. Corresponding measures should be taken to prevent rain, moisture, heatstroke and temperature, animal damage and severe cold in the building.
Again, the basics. The foundation of the rabbit house should be strong and durable. It is generally 10-15 cm wider than the wall, and the embedding depth is below the maximum freezing depth of the local soil layer.
Indoor walls should be firm, flat, smooth, earthquake-resistant, waterproof, fire-resistant, frost-resistant and easy to disinfect, and have good thermal insulation performance; the inner wall of the cement prefabricated rabbit cage and the fecal surface of the fecal plate are required to easily eliminate dirt , Easy to clean and disinfect.
The roof and ceiling should be tight and airtight. In areas with a lot of rain, snow and wind, the roof slope should be larger. The floor should be firm and compact, flat and not slippery, resistant to corrosion by disinfectants and other chemicals, easy to clean, and good in heat preservation and heat insulation. The floor should be 20-30 cm above the ground level outside the house. There should be slopes on both sides of the walkway in the house to prevent water and urine from staying on the walkway.
For epidemic prevention and disinfection, disinfection pools or disinfection plates should be set up at the entrance of rabbit farms and rabbit houses.
Also, height. The height of the rabbit house should be determined according to the form of the cage and the climate characteristics. In cold areas, the height of the rabbit house should be low, about 2.5 meters. In hot areas and the practice of multi-layer cages, the span should be increased by 0.5-1 meters. The single-layer rabbit cage can be lower, and the three-layer rabbit cage should be higher.
In addition, doors and windows. The door of the rabbit house should be sturdy, easy to open, close tightly, and generally open outward. There are no sharp objects on the surface and no steps under the door. The outer door of the rabbit house is generally 1.2 meters wide and 2 meters high. Longer rabbit shelters should have doors in the middle of the sun wall, and doors should not be installed on the north wall of the end wall in cold areas; windows have a great influence on lighting, natural ventilation, and temperature and humidity adjustment. Generally, the ratio of the effective lighting area of the floor of the rabbit house to the window is: breeding rabbit house 10:1, young rabbit house 15:1, incident angle not less than 25°, and light transmission angle not less than 5°. It is generally required to keep the light for 8-14 hours a day.
To discharge sewage again, the sewage facilities of the rabbit house include urine ditch, sedimentation tank, hidden ditch, shut-off device and fecal storage tank. This system should be able to expel feces and urine in the house in time. The excrement ditch should have a certain slope (about 1%), with a smooth surface, and be treated with anti-seepage treatment.
