Sugar and Delilah (our Giant Flemish rabbits) love their boxes; not only for kitting but also just to hide and play or snooze in! ❤️
Kindling boxes, also known as nest boxes, are placed into a doe’s cage a few days before she is due to kindle, that is, have a litter of baby rabbits known as kits. We placed Snowy's box in her hutch with some hay inside the kindling box and plenty just outside. She got very busy building her nest hopping in with mouthfuls of hay and lining her nest in preparation for the kits. Our kindling boxes are made of untreated plywood with wire mesh on the base and made to the right dimensions. We have a lift up hinged lid which works well give the doe security.
Please note these are made to order and it could take a few weeks to get through the workshop.
Its awesome. Really perfect for our pregnant bunny. She has built a nest in it already. It arrived quickly and in excellent condition. Was a very good price as well.
Wonderful purchase!! My 2 Flemish giant rabbits love to use the two boxes as make-shift burrows, sleeping, eating hay and hanging out in them! Very spacious, sturdy and high quality! 5/5 stars
Thank you so much for allowing me to modify the kindling boxes to become a bunny caves, the bunnies absolutely love them! The personal service from Appletons is just fantastic, they go above and beyond. A great NZ company and I highly recommend!
