Simple Way To Cool Rabbit Cages
Rhonda Flynn, Pattison, Texas, recently came up with a low-cost cooling system for her rabbits.
  “The inspiration came from a story in FARM SHOW where an engineering student fashioned copper tubing around the back of a large fan and then sucked ice water through it to cool his dorm room (Vol. 29, No. 5).
  “I used the same concept by running 3/8-in. dia. copper pipe through my rabbit cage. I use a fish tank pump to move water through the pipe. Water is pumped from a cooler filled with water and 2-liter bottles of ice.
  “Not only are my show/meat rabbits surviving our 100 plus degree Texas heat, they’re eating and the babies are growing. This is the first summer where they’ve flourished. I plan to replace the cooler with a mini fridge so I won’t have to change the ice water twice a day.”
