Re: Raising rabbits
I just started raising them and have 4 does and one buck. On friday we had two litters and next week we will have two more litters. if you feed them the right amount of feed you should be ahead when come butcher time. We have rabbits with pedigrees that we will butcher about 20 for ourselves and sell the rest papered to 4-h kids andothers who want to raise meat. hey sell for good money here even as meat. We had a bunny die today just because she has a bigger litter and the bunny was a runt. Everyone was fine afterit and we just make sure we all remember why we are raising them. It helps that our breeders scratch and are not friendly. we have a pet lionhead tocuddle with.
