A friend of mine is getting into rabbits, and I think they might be an interesting addition to the farm. What I wonder, is if they actually would be profitable? I am interested in the Angoras, Netherland Dwarfs, Mini-Satins, Mini-Rex, and the Britannia Petite to choose from... I have done some major internet reading up on them. After I can drive on my own (I'm 16, but late on the drivers training, lol) I may want to get into showing, but I know I will want to breed them. My questions are : Are they easy to raise/own, or is this a hobby I should pass on? What do I need to start up, other than hutches? (what size are the hutches, also? I plan to build them.) Do they need special winter housing, other than thier hutches? I might just build hutches with an enclosed area in the back, so they can stay warm in winter. What kind of water source is best, bottle or crock? Do they need a mineral source, like with goats? What medicines do I need for them, what size needles, other equipment?
