With nursing doe rabbits with a cage full of young ones lots of cool water is essential in this heat that we have had the last couple days.
Several times a day we make trips to the rabbit pens with frozen bottles of water. The rabbits lick the cool condensation as the bottles melt and lay against and over the bottles to cool off.
Don't forget that if you have lots of little ones in a pen that they drink lots. Those water tips will fit on a 2 liter coke bottle. Freeze them and make hangers out of old wire or clothes hangers. We hang several in the cages throughout the day and as they thaw the animals always have cool water.
And another way to recycle those bottles. For us we don't drink much out of bottles but we get friends and family to save them for us!
You can also lay these frozen bottles in your chicken, goat and dog water bowls to keep them cool!
