    I was sitting here thinking that there are a few people who do comment on the other animal post about rabbits that dont know a lot about them that it would be nice to set up a Back yard rabbit group. Anyone interested enough in one?

    I'd love to learn about rabbits from people who have them - either here on BYC or elsewhere. Any suggestions?

    I would love a rabbit forum! I have 6, one dutch doe, a pair of mini-rex's, and 3 that I have no idea what breed they are, but there are 2 does and a buck. I know almost nothing about rabbits!!

    I would love a backyard rabbit. I currently am trying to raise meat rabbits. I have four does and two bucks. No luck yet.

    I started this summer with 3 young cross bred does to raise meat rabbits. Since then I have purchased bucks, several more does, sold some, and raised a bunch of bunnies with more on the way. As of now I have seven breeding does and two breeding bucks. I am going to sell my older buck (a big gray) and start using a white New Zealand. I enjoy my rabbits very much! And I love talking about them.
