Well, for some reason, I've been on a rabbit kick. I want to go on a rabbit hunt, and now I want domestic rabbits. Their poop is supposed to be excellent straight from the rabbit into the garden. Plus, I can breed for meat as well, to make them productive for the family. I would also like to tan hides, for fun as well as maybe an extra buck here and there. I personally love the rexes, because they're so darned soft. I also like the californians, but mostly the rexes. Can I breed rexes for meat production, or are they unproductive as meat critters? I haven't heard anything on them in the various meat rabbit threads that I've read. Anyways, onto the main question... how much do they normally eat? How many pounds in a week per rabbit on average? How much should I expect to be feeding a female with a litter until the litter reaches maturity? I know that these are hard and will be rough estimates, but an idea to ride on would be very helpful.
