We keep our 2 does and buck in a 3 tier
breeding hutch. It measures 4ft wide x 6ft high x 2ft deep, each hutch
being 2 ft high. The hutches for the does should have a nest area at
one side for her to use for kindling. This should be about 12 inches
wide with a low retaining wall separating it from the main run. It
should also have a separate solid door for privacy.
The rest of the front of each hutch should be covered with 1’’x
1’’wire mesh with a door to allow for feeding. Our hutch fronts are
removable and each run area has a removable galvanised tray for easy
The hutch for the buck does not need a
separate area and is best left uncluttered in readiness for mating.
You will also need another 3 tier hutch
without nest areas. Two, for raising and fattening the youngsters and
1 spare for emergency us.
