You trying to breed cottontail native rabbits or San Juan?View attachment 55197 I started letting the grass grow at the back of my property. It's a 90x60 area that I want to breed rabbits in. Mainly for my children to make a few bucks. I have 3 already interested in Jr handling. Possibly get an occasional pup started early in it although I seldomly have pups. I'm building brush piles and planting blackberry briars. I will order the fence soon. Would you folks build a pen this small? How successful can I be with breeding real rabbits in this sized area?
My cousin couldn't wait for me to visit her in Dallas, TX. Wild rabbits were in her subdivision just like you mentioned. No woods, only shrubs and low bushes.. I could not believe what I saw hahaha. The neighbors probably wouldn't like me running by dogs is their bushesWild game have learned to hang out where there are more humans. I live in a gated community and the only cover is the shrubs and flowers around the houses. Everything else is sidewalks, driveways into the garage and roads leading into the properties. Often I see a rabbit hopping down the sidewalk or road. I see squirrels all the time and wild ducks. For two or three years one of my friends and neighbors had a wild duck set and raise little ones near one of his gutter downspouts. I never see a predator, cats are kept inside and all dogs are on leashes. Great place for wild animals to raise and exist.
What do you put in your feeder, store bought rabbit pellets, corn, or alfalfa?Get some pallets to pile up for rabbits to hide, put in feeders also. Put a hot electric wire at the outside bottom and at the top of the fence. JMO
Might want to put a coyote decoy by the fence, it may deter hawks and owls. JMO
