So I was blessed to have the opportunity to sell most of the kits from my last two litters of rabbits to my local animal/farm supply store. It wasn't a huge profit, but selling most of the kits from those two litters paid for my feed bill for the last 3 months, since I only have 8 adult rabbits. I'm not operating in the black by any means at this point, but it gives me hope for the future. It really has raised a turmoil of thoughts though. First of all, I got into rabbits mainly so that I could raise meat, second for wool from the angoras. I really did not intend to go into "business". The opportunity just presented itself, and here I am. The place where I sold them has said that they will take all the weaned kits I can bring them between now and May, which isn't a lot of time, so I am not going to ramp up production at all, there just isn't enough time. I have already bred every doe I have. If the rabbits I have bred now don't kindle, that'll be it. However, if I sell all my kits, there won't be any meat for the freezer (I kept two, so we would have some meat for the table, but there won't be any for the freezer for at least 10 weeks.I also kept a gorgeous orange bunny with black points. She is so pretty!) I can't decide wether I should sell as many as I can while the opportunity is here, or just glide back under the radar and produce for ourselves, selling angora fiber and rabbits, maybe yarn, where I can. How do you all handle the business end? I have kept rudimentary books, but do I need a business license? Should I have charged sales tax? Do I look at this as a hobby, or as a business? I really didn't expect to have to deal with these questions right now, having started out with three rabbits a year ago.
