Rabbit Care:
Rabbit Raising A - Z

The Rabbit Care Section serves all rabbit breeders: Show rabbits, pet rabbits, and livestock rabbits.

Most of the time, rabbit raising involves similar animal husbandry practices independent of the purposes those rabbits serve, whether meat, fur, fiber (wool), or pet. 

Livestock Rabbits:
Homestead and Commercial

Livestock rabbit farming, especially if a commercial enterprise, requires greater attention to detail. Various breeding, feeding, and lighting practices are optimized to help stabilize general and wintertime production. As always, animal welfare is paramount.

  • Put lapin on the family table
  • Feed a species-appropriate raw prey diet to the family dogs and cats
  • Gain full or part-time employment from your passion and expertise with raising rabbits, both in the USA and in developing countries.
  • Meat, fur, and fiber are common rabbit products, as are garden fertilizer, worms, and breeding stock

Pet Rabbits

Pet rabbits can be a perfect solution for animal-loving but busy urban dwellers. They sleep while you're at work or school, and are active during your breakfast, suppertime, and early evening. 

With 48 breeds of domestic rabbits available in the USA alone, the choices are nearly endless.
