Can I just say how amazing this book is? I realize that sounds forced or programmed but it isn't. I have been wanting to do meat rabbits for a few years now. I have been talking to people who have them, reading online, doing everything I can to prepare myself. My husband, who is a avid hunter, kept shooting my idea down-- no pun intended. Finally, after a third year of rabbit hunting and coming home empty handed, he said, let's look into it. Well, id done all that. So after sharing everything I learned, we went to get rabbits and he was like a kid at Christmas. From there, my interest turned into a continious burst of excitement for him and me-- since I no longer had to do this alone, lol.

No matter how much research and talking a person does, though, there are still things I have no clue about until they become an issue. That's when I went looking for a book.

I've bought Storey books before and liked them but I still prepared myself to find a bunch of things out that I already knew. In fact, usually a book is filled more with "I already know that" than, " oh! I didn't know that!".

This one wasn't like that at all. I mean, a few things I few but a wealth of info that I didn't. For example, I didn't know about Florida Whites and while I have no proof, I think a couple of rabbits I bought this past weekend who the owner said was New Zealand's, but after getting them home and seeing them compared to my NZ's and seeing how tiny they are compared to them, I am now wondering if they are FW's. Rare in my area-- if I can find them at all, I think it's possible people would confuse the two.

Still unsure about those marbles to check a Doe and if she is pregnant, and if my Does took or not-- having to wait till they pull fur--this book gave me a few more ideas on how to tell.

Not to mention Hutch ideas, watering examples, DISEASES and a ton of possibilities on making some money doing this-- pros and cons of both-- like Labs ( not doing but appreciate the info), selling fur and what fur sells best, seeking to commercial meat places verses processing myself and selling local -- well, I appreciated ALL of these!

And the couple of recipes in the back-- wish there were more-- be sure to thank your wife for that!

I'm sure this book will continue to be helpful and it's one of few I will never regret buying!!!!! Thank so much!

I have used Storey's guides for all of our homesteading start up projects and have found them immensely helpful. Bees? YES. Poultry? YES. Ducks & Geese? YES. Rabbits? Meh.

This one I wasn't so thrilled with. The author is very focused on raising rabbits for breeding and selling (commercially it seems), not on meat rabbits (our focus) or pets (a lot of other people's focus). Right off the bat, I was skeptical because he is a proponent of regular dosing of his stock with antibiotics and other medications (antibiotic resistance, anyone? I'm a biologist and that is a bad choice.) I ended up getting on BackyardHerds website and asking many questions there because I felt like they were not answered in this book. Found some awesome people who helped me for free much more than the book.

This book has a lot of useful info, and it's a good source for those getting started with rabbits. However, some of it did not suit my preferences for "quality of life" enhancement. The main reason I want to raise our own food is to get away from supporting the factory farming industry [buying from local, small farmers is just too expensive for us] and all its cruelty. At best, factory farming is just warehousing of animals, and at worst, it's brutal at times, in the pursuit of profit.

As weird as it sounds, I treat my meat rabbits like pets, right up until the time they are processed to become food. I am still able to make the choices of who goes to processing, but I do love them all. I want them to be happy and enjoy their lives, which for me, requires more than an "adequate" sized wire cage with food and water. I want mine to have stuff in their cages to play with, chew on, climb on, etc., as well has giving them time on pasture. I pet them and talk to them, and the breeding age rabbits all have names. That's just the way I like to do things; others do it differently and I respect that.

With this book, it's more about what to feed, how much, what size cages you need for what size rabbits, etc. Still, the book has lots of solid basic care info that new rabbit raisers really need to know. It's a worthwhile read before you get your first rabbits - many rabbits die from well meaning but uneducated owners, so avoid that by learning as much as you can about what not to do before bringing those bunnies home.

This book focuses on raising rabbits for meat. The author has mostly raised small-medium breeds, and most of his information regarding weight at weaning, size of hutches/nest boxes, etc. is specific to those smaller breeds. If you plan to raise something like New Zealands, you'll need to do some supplemental reading online for that information. Bennett does include a brief description of all the common breeds in the back of the book to help in selecting a breed.

The book is comprehensive and contains everything you need to know to get started breeding, raising, and slaughtering meat rabbits. There is limited information about processing rabbits for their fur.

The author recommends raising rabbits in all-wire cages not in contact with the ground, and feeding almost exclusively commercial rabbit pellets. There is little information about growing your own feed, and nothing about pastured rabbits, colony-type raising, or rabbit "tractors."
