RADIO IN THE RABBITRY
Spoil and keep your rabbits safe by giving them a radio!
Playing a radio in your rabbitry will benefit your rabbits by making them more accustomed to unusual sounds and less likely to panic and hurt themselves by running around the cage .
Rabbits being prey animals, are generally timid and easy to startle. A sudden kick with its hind legs or excited run around the cage is all it takes to snap the rabbit’s backbone and render it paralyzed. Because the rabbits will be used to other noises they will be less excitable and less stressed thus giving you more relaxed, happy, healthy rabbits.
I have a friend who raises fancy (expensive) chickens and always had a radio playing day and night to keep predators away. He never had a problem until one night his wife turned off the radio. The next day every one of his chickens was gone.
You will also enjoy the music when you are feeding, cleaning, grooming, and just hanging out with the rabbits.
At night I change the station to talk radio so predator’s and even humans may think someone is out in the rabbitry. Even a police scanner would work.
So let your rabbits jam out to your favorite tunes or mellow out with some classical background music.
