Cages for rabbits from the metal gauze. How to make a cage from the grid for rabbits, photos, sizes, drawings, videos.
For growing rabbits in farm conditions, it is more practical to use sectional metal cages from a welded mesh.
Metal cells, unlike wood cells, take up less space indoors and are more convenient for cleaning and disinfection.

Cells from the grid consist of sections and are connected in spans. Cells can be one, two and three tiered.

So, what kind of mesh is needed for rabbit cells?
For the manufacture of cages for rabbits will need metal welded mesh. Such a mesh is produced at the production on a machine by the method of spot welding, the strength of the mesh depends on the diameter of the wire, the larger the diameter of the wire, the stronger the mesh, for making rabbit cages, a mesh with a wire diameter of 2 mm is used.
Welded metal mesh can be of several types:
- Without cover.
- Polymer coated.
For the manufacture of cells it is not recommended to use an uncoated mesh, it will quickly begin to rust, a polymer coated mesh is expensive and it is irrational to use it.
The best option is galvanized mesh, cells from galvanized mesh are the most durable. The grid comes in various sizes in rolls and sheets.
For the manufacture of cages for rabbits will need a grid of the following sizes:
For the manufacture of floor cages, a mesh with a wire diameter of 2 mm is used, a smaller thickness is not recommended, the mesh will sag under the weight of rabbits.
The cell size is 20 x 20 mm, or 16 by 25 mm, for large breeds, 25 x 25 mm can be used.
The side walls of the cells.
For the side walls of the cells, a grid with a mesh size of 25 x 25 mm and a wire diameter of 2 mm is used.
Top of the cells.
For the upper part of the cells, a grid with a mesh size of 25 x 150 mm and a wire diameter of 3-4 mm is used.

Drawings of cells from the grid for rabbits.
The drawings are drawings with optimal sizes for the manufacture of cages for rabbits.
The grid is cut to size, the cage is assembled, and the parts of the grid are fastened together with galvanized brackets.
Cells are mounted on frames from the corner or shaped tubes. When assembled, the cells are a section, sections are installed in one row for ease of maintenance.
To collect excrement, metal pallets are installed under the cell floor; they can be made of galvanized.
Each cell is equipped with a nipple drinker and a feeder.
Cages for cat rabbits are additionally equipped with removable drawers nests.
Cages from a welded grid are applied in industrial cultivation of rabbits, and also in the conditions of small house farms.
