We are getting set to get chickens and rabbits in the spring. That's to this site and internet research we had no trouble picking a breed. Rabbits are a different story! We are looking for a rabbit breed that has a few qualities....good meat to bone ratio, decent hides (not sure we will tan much but want to be able too), friendly personality and doesn't require a huge amount of space think calm rabbits. Doing internet searches you seem to come up with more pet rabbits that's fine for some people but we want them for meat. I wish you guys had a backyardrabbits.com site! I have looked at several breeds like the American chinchilla, silver fox and the Netherlands. But can't really seem to find a lot of info from people who keep rabbits. My husband is kind of against getting the white rabbits with the red eyes the California i think. Something about those freaky red eyes lol. Feel free to give my any advice! Im not locked into any of those breeds so any you know of that have the above things we are looking for im all ears. Plus we have been working on our coop for chickens and haven't started the hutch yet so really any advice i won't turn my nose up at. Thanks!
