    I hatch and sell quite a few chicks in late winter through mid summer. I don't like selling them around easter because they are gifts for little kids that are interested in them for a week or so then they forget about them. My wife is trying to convince me to get rabbits but I don't have a lot of extra time for more animals currently. If we do end up getting Rabbits what would be better for breeding and selling locally? Meat of Pet rabbits? Thanks

    What breeds or colors would sell well? What kind of maintenance comes with a rabbit?
