Being the winter time, I like to stew in many ideas of what I want to do during the next year starting off in the spring time. Well I've come across the idea of raising rabbits. How I came across this is that working at a pet store we rarely get any good quality reliable rabbits for selling through the year. So I wondered, with the land I'm blessed with and the job to aid me in doing so, should I raise rabbits and can I raise rabbits? Now what Im needing feed back from you guys is some quality advice and personal experiences with raising rabbits along side ducks and/or chickens. Now Ive heard some interesting opinions already about chickens having a pecking order and killing off the rabbits; that's fine I'm not much for the chickens I have anyways and someone would be very thankful for a chicken on their table during this season. I have a fully weather proof coop of 10x7x6ft; a small kiddy pool/duck pond and a consistently cleaned indoor and outdoor enclosure for the birds. What preparations with my indoor and outdoor living spaces should I adjust to prepair for keeping the furry friends? What feeding routines or foods should and change? I live in West Texas so extreme winters are not in our forecast but hot summers are, what should I keep in mind for keeping the rabbits cool in the summers? Also, what breeds would be best or ideal for colonizing?
