We only have one rabbit (a doe given to us by a friend) so we have been looking for a buck and another doe. I saw an ad on Craigslist for free rabbits and called. The lady said she had one bunny and got another "female" for company and it wasn't a female. She now has 5 baby rabbits. When I told her that I wanted to breed she offered me the parents. I have a couple of thoughts. 1. She had no clue what kind of rabbits they were - does that matter? 2. She wants a "good home" for them. Should I tell her that I plan on raising their children for meat? Or just not mention it? I would not plan on eating my breeders. 3. She said this litter was actually the second. She lost the first kits (stillborn, etc they all died within a week she said). She has now raised a litter, Should I assume she will be a good mother and that first loss was because she was young and didn't know what she was doing? 4. Should I get any of the babies as well? I know she probably has no clue if they are male or female and I am not experienced enough to know for sure. I don;t see why I would need more then one buck .... I appreciate your wisdom!
