When showing rabbits at a coop show, like the one Ft Worth Livestock Show and Rodeo is hosting the first two weekends in February, cage dividers is usually a concern of most exhibitors. Many times at a coop show the space between the rabbit cages are close enough that the rabbits may fight with their neighbor. This can cause an injury, and sometimes even cause a show career ending injury. With this in mind, many exhibitors come prepared with either cardboard or poster board to put in between the cages.
We have discovered something else that serves as great cage dividers and a great way to recycle. This year we are using our paper feed sacks. Each feed sack can be cut into 2-4 panels; they fold up nice and need only a small space for traveling. Follow these simple steps to make your own cage dividers.
- Cut off bottom panel where the bag was sown closed with feed label.
- Cut up one side l, full length of bag.
- Open bag and cut up other side, so you have two complete panels, front and back.
- Fold front panel in half, then fold back panel in half. This give you two separate cage dividers. If you need more these two panels can be cut in half again make it four dividers.
When you arrive at the show and locate your coops, just tuck these cage dividers into the space between the cages.
