Rabbit Tenders was a success! 😊👌🏻🍴🐇 Marinated lion and saddle pieces in buttermilk and spices for a few hours, tossed in herb seasoned breadcrumbs, & cooked in a skillet before broiling in the oven for 1-2 minutes for a crunchy crust.
Processed 4 of the 6 Californian grow outs this past weekend. Rabbit meat: •Thighs/back legs in 1 freezer bag •'Wings' front legs in another •Loin and saddle sections in 1 bag (marinating in the fridge) •Belly flaps and little scraps in a bowl to dehydrate for jerky treats for the dogs. *may experiment with some recipe to make jerky for us as well •Crockpot: the spine section, onion, carrots, celery, rosemary from the garden, bay leaf, and water to cook for about 10-12 hours for a nice…
RL Rabbitry: Campbell (aka Camp) the Californian buck just relaxing in the cool dirt after breeding with Cali (also a Californian). He's defiantly one of the calmest and sweetest rabbits we have ever owned!! Not once in the year I have owned him as he tried to bite, scratch, or attack
Mr. Fluff the English angora is in quarantine (30 days) on the front porch (far away from the buns inside and on the back porch) so dad built him a temporary play pen so we can open the hutch and let him run around to stretch his legs.
I was just asked by my boss and the head of functions if I would ever be interested to teach a class at work one weekend about rabbits, more specifically raising meat rabbits *I'd start out with a general rabbit care class and ask if people would be interested in learning about raising rabbits for meat and move on from there.. I'm not 100% sure yet. It would be a good way to educate the public about owning rabbits wether as livestock or just as pets, burn down some of the myths
Life of a rabbit breeder and dealing with non-rabbit family members!! LOL! Wait until I get my rabbit barn because that means more cages and more rabbits to fill them. We currently have 26 rabbits on the property but that included 5 weaned Holland lop kits, 2 prospect junior HL does from my last litters, 12 weaned meat youngsters, and the rest are adults - my breeders and 1 pet.
