As those who have attended will know, our rabbit barn has permanent cooping with wire floors and solid dividers. It is not necessary to bring risers, cardboard, etc. While feed and water dishes are available at the showroom, these are not cleaned between shows. We recommend bringing your own dishes that will attach securely to 1”x2” wire. Many of these coops have holes for the provided J-feeders. You may use the provided J-feeders to close the gaps or bring cable ties to do this. Carriers may be stored underneath coops or in the poultry barn.

We’ll be the 4 th large national specialty show in April, so we will be preparing the barn by cleaning and disinfecting coops and judging tables. Supplies to make any necessary repairs will be on hand. If you find that an assigned coop needs some attention, please let the show committee know. We’ll fix it! Do not attempt to make a repair yourself or complain to everyone but us!
