Since I cannot have chickens where I live due to noise restrictions we decided to go with meat rabbits. I just got my young buck yesterday, he's only 8 weeks. He's a purebred REW Satin. My two does are a Champage D'Argent and one New Zealand/Flemish cross (3/4 NZ and 1/4 Flemish). We are planning on several litters a year and will probably do a litter every 3-4 months or more depending on demand. We have several families interested in our rabbit meat. We are going to grow our babies out in tractors after they are 6-8 weeks, until they are between 12-16 weeks old. I guess I'll have more specific ages for this after a couple litters and really getting a feel for what this entails. I will be giving updates here on the weights of these mixes and culling my adults as I figure out what mixes work best for us. The breeders I got these bunnies from have offered me stud service of their NZ and Champage so that I might see what qualites the purebred litters have. From there we'll cull accordingly. I'll get some pictures sometime over the next couple days.
