Mounted the poles to the top of the kennel last night so that I could hang the rabbit cages. I used U-bolts to attach the cages to the poles and I used 2 poles so that the cages would remain stationary.
So we needed a way to protect the chickens and rabbits from other animals. The plan was to create a border around the fence with chicken wire. This will prevent the rabbits from digging out and other animals from digging in.
I picked up some tent stakes yesterday from Harbor Freight for about $2 a pack and some chicken wire from Tractor Supply a little while ago. Today we got out and installed it, below is the result. Also from Harbor Freight is a 10’x12′ net I got for $30 with a 20% off coupon to cover the top of the kennel to prevent hawks from getting in.
Next step is to build the hanging cages for the rabbits.
