Homesteading: Animals besides chickens

“When it is understood that one loses joy and happiness in the attempt to possess them, the essence of natural farming will be realized. The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.” ― Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution

Homemade rabbit hutch out of an old dresser. simple rabbit hutch. Seems to me you could get an old dresser (or TV cabinet or even a chest) and with a little work, make one yourself. Pop out the drawers, insert wire, add tin to the roof, add a ramp. You could lengthen the legs and run chicken wire around the new longer legs for a "bottom floor" pasture area.

    They don't get 40 lbs. I had two 26 lb. does and that shocked judges at shows. The people in the flemish group on facebook don't believe they were that big. Most are 18- 22 lbs.

    Breeding rabbits is all well and good, but I help at a rabbit rescue that has nearly 200 rabbits needing homes. Maybe is better to neuter/spay them and adopt more if your want more?

    You can't show mutts and breeding is needed to keep rare breeds going. What needs to stop is pet store "breeders" and people with the idea they are not livestock. If unwanted rabbits were used to feed the starving and homeless there would be less suffering on both sides. Just being honest.

    I guess. The only thing is, most of the rabbits at the rescue are fur and not much meat.
