OK so most of you know that I raise quail, Turkeys, ducks, chickens and now a hog for meat for our family. Well the chickens are for eggs, and my amusement too. Well we are one week away from processing the hog. I can't wait to turn the hog pen into a tomatoe patch! My dad's neighbor is a meat rabbit breeder and he offers already dressed rabbits for $8 a peice. Well between our house and my dads we have been keeping him in great business. After fiance found out how awesome rabbit meat is I got the go ahead to get some of our own and raise them. I have lots of experience wtih rabbits. We raised them on our farm growing up. I also raised them when I got older and bred them for pets. So this seemed like a no brainer to me. Last weekend dad informs me Rabbit guy has two litters of rabbits that are ready to go. They are from two totally different pairs and non are related. Well Dad has decided its a good idea to breed his own also. So Step mom did her best to pick us out two pairs. I ended up with two does. It was OK though, the more the marrier. So I put an add on Craigslist to find a nice large breed meat type buck to go with them. A nice lady responded that raises meat rabbits also. She advised that she had 6 week old CalifornianX buck from her last litter and would be happy to trade him for 5 of my 6 week old layer pullets. DONE DEAL! So now I have 2 does and 1 buck. Can't wait til this summer when I can start breeding babies!
