    Hello all!


    New member here. :) This will be my first time doing any type of homesteading (my boyfriend and I are both very excited!!). We decided we're going to start with rabbits and then potentially branch out depending on how it goes! We're going to be using them for meat for our dogs and ourselves, although we haven't yet decided on a breed (if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!! I've been trying to decide for WEEKS!! :sick haha).

    Has anyone here used a greenhouse? Also, how were you able to decide with what breeds to go with when you first started??

    Thanks!

    Hi and welcome to BYC :frow We're so happy you've decided to join us:ya We decided early on to go with endangered breeds, makes it a bit more difficult, but rewarding.
