raising beagles

looking for someone who runs rabbit dogs. I'm getting started and plan on getting 5 or 6 beagles and need info on what size kennels, how many to one kennel, etc.

 It's been years, but my dad and I raised beagles for rabbit hunting. (the last were probably 1990 or so) Our kennels were 10x10. Males were always separate and females were housed in pairs.
 One thing I do remember well is that beagles are incredible escape artists. I'd highly recommend burying the fence at least a foot into the ground. We had several that would dig under the fence otherwise. We even had two that would climb the fence straight up and jump out. They ended up having fence "roofs".

 Damn I miss the sound of a pack of beagles running.....
