My cages are 24" tall x 30" deep x 24" wide or 48" wide. I use show cooping style coops were the cage is wire but
the floor is wooden and I put down pine shaving and hay. I have raised hares on wire and find that either way works. The big
problem with wire is having a strong enough floor to support the development of strength in the hares ankles. I have not found
that wire floors cause sorehocks on the hares, if it does then it's probably because of low quality floor wire. If you need
to use wire make sure it is a very strong wire and that you bed it down with hay or straw or even a piece of plywood or carpet
thru the middle for them to be on. Another caging option is large plastic dog crates! They clean up very nice and just bed
it down with pine shavings and hay or straw. My cages have plywood floors so to get as much life out of the wood as I can
I buy cheap plain ol' cat litter boxes from the dollar store and try to get them to use them. I have some hares that use thier
boxes without any problems and I have some that don't care where they go! (haha, 90% of them will take to the box just fine
though) This will help keep the wood from breaking down from the urine soaking into it. My cages were purchased
from Plank Cage and Supply out of Michigan. Willis Plank and his family make excellent cages and will make them to your liking!
I will post a link to thier website on here asap.
My barn is not heated and the Hares do just as well as any other breed of rabbit in the cold and the heat.
