What materials can you use to build rabbit pens?

68. Wire mesh is the best material for building rabbit pens. It lasts a long time and is easy to keep clean. However, wire mesh may be hard to find and it costs a lot of money.

69. Later, if you begin to sell rabbits you may want to use some of the money that you make to buy wire mesh for your pens.

70. You will be shown how to build pens with wire mesh floors and walls in the next booklet in this series.
71. You can also build good pens using materials that cost little money such as used wood, old boxes, crates, poles from straight tree branches or bamboo.
