Mason family rabbits
« on: June 25, 2015, 04:43:39 AM »
Decided this year to get a couple rabbits to raise and so far we have had a blast with them. Its and easy way for me and my daughter to spend some time. We can spend hours in the pen with them at a time. I am bored and figured I would show some of our pictures.

Ummm tastety .

Raised rabbits as a kid. Infact my mom took orders and I would butcher them after school. And folks would pick them up at our front door. Back in the 60s.

Are they kept in a colony?
Do you know the breed? Look like either Satin or Havana.
Rabbits are fun and yummy.

I am not a hundred percent positive the breed, girl told me meat bred rabbit. We do have a couple flemishes in there too.
We keep ours in a colony, the stuff I read said it's easier to keep them that way. We got ours to have a another source of meat for the family. Plus it's a good prepper food.

One big fenced in pen with underground tunnels and holes.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

One big fenced in pen with underground tunnels and holes.

And sometimes they decide to "vent" those tunnels with an escape hole outside the friggin' pen.   >:(

We have been super lucky, so far no escapes. We lined the floor with fencing. But underneath is far game for them.
