How to Make Your Own Rabbit Feeders

We go to the farmers market often to supplement what we grow. This year it's for lettuce mostly. There is a local farm that grows it along with Kale hydroponically so we buy from them. I don't like the fact that it's packaged in plastic containers though and will start asking them to put it in my homemade 100% organic cotton veggie bags from now on.


After much thought about how to recycle the ones I have, it was decided to use them as greens feeders for the rabbits. Simply cut one side off. It doesn't matter which one then put a hole in two of the sides and bottom. Take zip ties through the holes that you made in the feeder then the cage wire from the outside and snug them up. Voila, instant feeder. Fill your hay and greens through the top and the bunnies can enjoy through the wire without stepping on the food and soiling it.


Got a photo of hubby working hard today while I was making feeders. He is putting in our stone walkway because it can get muddy here. The stones didn't cost anything. They dug them up as they were installing our septic system.


Fresh roasted vegetables and chicken for dinner afterwards.



How do you feed your rabbits if you have any? Do you have a unique feeder design?

  1. What a great way to reuse the plastic from the lettuce containers! I'm sure, now that you've got all the feeders you need, the farmers will be happy to use your containers. It would save them a little bit of money too!
