Rabbit barn construction

Much of the last 2 weeks have been spent getting the rabbit barn finished. The rabbits were moved out about 2 weeks ago to the GBI campus.

Here is the rabbit barn before construction.

After some clearing around the building, some minor wall repairs, addition of a roof, framing the windows and planting shade trees around the building, we have the new barn.

Inside the rabbits are nice and cool. I was able to add 16 more cages, with space for another 20 still. In the next couple of weeks, we are going to pave the corner room of the barn for storage and a hygenic butchering area.

In March, GBI students will be able to learn rabbit raising and management as part of their coursework.
