my rabbit problem

746 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  MadamGreenthumb
I think my rabbits' failure to produce is two things. One the terrible heat, they do have a fan and i give them ice water...but still. I live in Mississippi, someone described the air as 'juicy' and thats about right. The other thing maybe, they are cheap rabbits. My dear husband doesnt understand the concept of inital output vs. longterm cost. So we got the $5 rabbits from a hobbyist instead of the $20 from a larger scale meat breeder. I'm mostly interested in breeding for personal use...meat and fur. Anyone ever raised satins or other breeds for meat? What do you think?

Thanks a lot,

Where in MS are you? I know of a satin breeder here in LA, as well as a number of NZ breeders.
See if they have anything. I know the Rome's in the Baton Rouge area(It's a grandfather and grandsons, the grandpa is a judge) have a number of breeds, satings I think are one. They do have red NZ's I know for sure. Many NZ and Cal breeders at the shows. Let me know if you need more breeders.
