The building is mosquito-proof to prevent exposure to myxomatosis and calicivirus which are carried by biting insects and are fatal to rabbits.
Rabbits are housed in individual pens with hidey-holes, tunnels, boxes and logs and there are indoor playpens where everyone has daily time out for a hop, skip and snuffle around.
The Bunnery is separate and distant from the kennels or cattery.
Bunnies have continual access to food which is checked and refreshed several times a day.
We give a generous helping of a variety of veggies. This is a mixture of leafy greens and herbs along with a small amount of carrot, capsicum, kumara as well as fresh fruits and berries for a treat.
Good quality rye hay is always available.
We also feed an appropriate serve of Oxbow Rabbit, our pellet of choice, twice a day. Pellets are sprinkled on the hay to provide entertainment in the forage for food.
Fresh water is supplied in both a bowl and a sipper.
