I live on a 600 acre organic hill lamb, hogget and mutton farm in Wales and am looking at getting some meat rabbits. I plan on raising them in a colony tractor. The tractor is going to be triangular prism shaped and have wire on all sides and the floor to prevent burrowing and escaping as most of our ground is uneven. My question is, is it okay to use the same wire for the sides as the floor? I am going to use galvanised wire mesh (not chicken wire) and the spacing is going to be about 1" sq. to prevent the baby's escaping as I heard any larger and they will just walk out. Will the wire crush the grass stopping the rabbits from eating it? And will it hurt their feet even if it is flush to the ground?
