Breeding Bunnies

I have breed rabbits for food (in the past) and bunnies for household pets. The tips I’m providing are based on a small cottage-size effort, not a large for profit industry. If you are interested in raising rabbits to supplement your income, I recommend contacting your local Agriculture Extension Agent who can provide you with specifics for your area, consult any of the fine books or online websites designed for larger rabbit “farming.

Of course the breeding process basically is the same for both methods, but homestead rabbiting is less grand.

The first step is making sure both the doe and buck are in good health.
