    I don't need rabbits for pets, we have toooooo many darn wild ones in the fields. While im cutting they scatter, toooo many of the critters.

    Those tiny little round bales in the 50lb bag are way to expensive for me :p The price for one of those little headgates or the tiny milkers must cut into the profit quickly!!!!

    I tried raising rabbits for profit a few years ago. Neither I nor anyone I knew who had rabbits then consistently made any profit from them.
