hey, Where are you in Ok?  I live in Wilburton.  The best suggestions for the heat are Shade of course, then cool damp towels for the rabbits to lay on, or frozen 2 liter coke bottles for them to lay against and maybe a fan to blow the air around not directly on them though.  Good luck with the bunnies

Weather is tame for this time of year (June 3) in Central Calif. Low 80F right now.

But when it warms up, we use frozen water bottles for the animals to lean up against.

Now we have them indoors with a portable air conditioner.

In the past we had them outside in hutches under a big shade tree. We used ice bottles, fans, misters, and even a swamp cooler to help keep them comfortable. When it got really hot, over 100F degrees, we would put them into carrier cages and take them indoors to the air conditioned area of the house. The hallway would have a dozen or so heat refugees lined up in cages.

Do what you can to keep them comfortable!

Have a good day!

I moved from California (where raising rabbits in the summer was sort of touchy) to Oklahoma. It is very hot here in the summer and very humid. Anybody have any ideas hot to keep NZ rabbits cool in 100 degree heat with 80% humidity?
