    ive been tossing it around in my head for quite some time.... I love the mother hen and chicks and how well she looks after them, but it seems a lot of people like baby bunnies.. But whenever I try to breed rabbits a majority of the does eat there babies or something... At least with eggs you can candle and see to make sure they are going to be babies someday! And with chickens you can know aprox how many chicks you will get... Is there a high demand for chickens? I need your help! PLZ help me out. Tjanks

    There is a decent demand for rare and heirloom birds... Depends on where you live though...
    When I had rabbits they ate their young when it was over crowded.

    thank you! My does have a horse stall each so there not crowded... I can depend on eggs better, I have lots of rare breeds of chickens.
