These kits were born not two weeks ago. There are a total of 8. I believe the doe is a Blanc de Hotot mix and the buck is a California Rex/ New Zealand White mix. Basically, meat mutts. This is my second litter. I am about 1 and half years into this project. I didn't want to rush and produce a ton of rabbits without making sure I had the most appropriate set up. Now I feel a lot more comfortable to start regular production. I intend to tan the hides with Alum ( purchased 10 pounds ) and water solution. If anyone has any suggestions other than " pinning up " the hides on a wood board to dry, please advise. Also, any info on how to properly cut the fur to be able to make the best use of it later?
