An automatic water feeder like this keeps your water clean and prevents messes. I recommend to add 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar per 1 gallon of water to help with general health of your rabbits. This system can also be used for ferrets, chickens and other small animals.

“Olla” Clay Pot: Ancient yet Super-Efficient Watering Method

The OLLA method is an ancient technique of low tech, low cost irrigation used in various environments around the world. An OLLA is an unglazed clay pot fired at a low temperature. This allows the pot to remain porous. The OLLA is buried in the ground with neck exposed and periodically filled with water. The water seeps into the soil at a rate that provides adjacent plants with a constant water source at the roots. Product: Olla Irrigation Pot
