Setting Up A Rabbitry


The Modern Homesteading Podcast, Episode 91 – June 14, 2018 – Setting Up A Rabbitry.

Question For Today’s Podcast Episode:


Ty Asks – What are some best ways to set up a rabbitry? I have three does and a buck in separate outdoor hutches at this time. I have been receiving large amounts of requests for rabbit meat. So in order to capitalize, I want to expand my operation. I was thinking of building a small rabbit-specific barn but I have no clue where to start. What should the dimensions be, what type of ventilation should I use, what kind of watering system works best, should I make it climate controlled, etc. And how to do all of this without breaking the bank?


I Discuss:

  • Best place to put a rabbitry
  • Options for building design
  • Affordable cage options
  • Climate control
  • Best ways to create good ventilation
  • Rabbit watering setups
  • Manure management

The Homestead Life:

A segment where each episode I share something that’s better in my life because of homesteading.


I really enjoy providing for the homestead through fishing. Fishing has always been fun for me and I’ve always eaten some of what I caught long before homesteading but now I not only look at it as recreation but as an act of provision for the homestead. It has become another way to put healthy food in the home and it’s a good feeling to know you’re accomplishing something meaningful for yourself and your family.
