Just thought I'd share some stuff that I have found that maybe helpful to new Breeders: 1. Breeding and Genetics- The most you want of Flemish Giant blood in your rabbits is 25% as it will affect your Meat to Bone Ratios. The main things that a meat breeder should breed for are motherly instinct, good type (MtoB Ratios etc.) calm rabbits that are not aggressive and large viable litters. 2. Feeding-A rabbit may need less food than a meat rabbit to get to eg. the 8 week mark but if it goes much past that it ends up needing more in the long run. 3. Meat to Bone Ratios- All breeders with meat animals as there primary objective in mind that are selling stock should be trying to breed for the best Ratios. 4. Cages and Hutches- Metal is best but it costs more usually. Questions I've got: 1. Does a well built hutch cost more than a well built cage and by how much? 2. Can you state you favourite meat breeds and why they are your favourite? 3.If it is a "mutt" then what is the lineage or breeds that it has in it and the percentages? 4. Please leave any tips that you have found through reading or years of breeding rabbits. Feel free to contradict any of this if you feel that you are right but most of all leave your experience.
