Tips for raising meat rabbits

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've kept several rabbits over the years as pets. My last rabbit, Lily Mae, died spring 2013, 3 years ago. I am going to pick up a young buck and doe tomorrow. I'm planning on breeding them and raising their offspring for meat. Any tips you could give me or websites you could direct me to would be awesome!!!!!!!!!! Thanks! :cool:

Are you planing on pasturing them or raising in hutches?

The breeders will be in hutches and the young that will be slaughtered will be pastured in portable shelters
