    I guess this is not the right poll for "because they are tasty lean meat?"

    Lol, I was debating whether to raise rabbits for pets or meat.
    There's not much of a market, where I live, for meat rabbits, so I went with pet.

    I've actually been *thinking* of getting some rabbits for meat reasons..but not even sure where to start. I mean...we could go to the pet store, but I don't know where the get their animals from...so that thought isnt sitting too well with me.

    I guess it's another excuse to surf Google.

    I would look for a Californian, New Zealand, or a Flemish Giant breeder in your area.
    Most likely they will be selling them as meat rabbits and raising them for meat themselves.
    If you buy from a meat rabbit breeder they will be willing to answer your questions, that may arise, when starting this new hobby.
