I've decided not to start a new Angora breed (though the posts were very helpful) instead start a completely new breeding program once my twin does kindle and wean. I've decided I'd like to start a Pet or Meat breed. And I'd like some information and have some questions. Meat- Marketing Meat: I've been looking on websites, and cannot find any information on if there is a market for meat rabbits. Can anyone give me tips on to finding information on that? Prices: I know it varies alot, but can any meat breeders give me some of their averages per pound on their fryers? I've looked on websites and I've seen 50 cents thru 1 dollar a pound. Breed: I've narrowed it down to White New Zealand and Calafornian. Any preferences? Pet- Breed: This seems like a very diffacult choice. I'm looking for a Friendly and Good Looking breed. I've been considering Mini Lops and Dutch but I know there are a lot of breeds. Pet Stores: Is selling there a bad idea? My thought is yes. I think that they don't handle, or really care much about the rabbits. I also know alot of pet stores put their breeds through alot of stress, and I don't think knowing my rabbits will be through stress is worth it. Also I don't know who will re-buy from there, and the pet stores do not care. I plan to sell both breeds as show stock, and then sell the one's who have discualifacations (sp?) are won't make good placings as meat (meat breeds) and pets (pet breeds). I also plan maybe to start out with one just meat breeds or just pet breeds, since I still have my Angoras to take care of. Which one would you sugject to do?
