Here is one of my lady rabbits eating the fodder. You can see how much she is enjoying it.

I had previously advised you all that I would update you on my fodder growing.  I fed some of my rabbits some fodder on the weekend and I can happily report that it appears to have been well received.  I split the fodder into three and fed it to the the rabbits in my hutches that are in my car port.  As you can see from the video below.

Sorry for the low sound quality… It was a very windy day.

 

My fodder growing system is not established as Therese’s fodder system, yet it is starting to serve it’s purpose and produce enough fodder.  I am using small plastic greenhouses that Kitty and I purchased from a local hardware store.  We placed them in our “sunroom”, which is the front room of our home, mostly made of glass.  It can get quite warm in that room, even in winter.  With the fodder growing in the mini greenhouses I get them warm enough for the grain to germinate.  Even so… The temperature is not sufficient for them to germinate as quickly as Theresa’s bran.

Every two days I am setting up a tub for growing fodder.  It is taking almost 2 weeks till the bran has germinated sufficiently to be used as feed (although I guess I could feed it to the rabbits sooner… it wold just be less value for money). I am very happy with the result.  The 6 cups of bran is coming out to be more than sufficient to feed the three rabbits.

Here is some fodder just before it was cut up for the rabbits. It took about 2 weeks to get this established.
