    Rabbit, the other, other white meat?

    PHILLIP RAWLS

    Associated Press


    MARBURY, Ala. - Rabbit farms are multiplying rapidly across the South, but their products aren't destined to be Easter bunnies.

    These rabbits could soon be on the menu for Easter Sunday or any other day of the week as more Southerners discover the lean, white meat.

    "It tastes like chicken," said 11-year-old Brady Cox.

    "And you can fix it any way chicken can be fixed," added his grandfather, Wayne Powell, who helps his three grandsons run the family's rabbit business on their small farm 20 miles north of Montgomery.

    They started in September with only a few rabbits. Now they have 500.

    "They multiply pretty quick," said 13-year-old Houston Powell
