yeah..where have you been??
so that's pretty quick. even better than chickens. that must help keep the cost way down!
I know, I know. I've been in hiding. lol.
To be honest, I actually kinda forgot about this place. Made some great friends on this forum and then disappear! What the heck is wrong with me! lol
Yeah, it's super quick. Chicken takes around 6 months or more (depending if they free range) before they're ready to harvest. My 10 hens go through a 50lb sack of feed every 3 weeks. I just bought a bag for $18 today. Do the math.
Now my 5 rabbits go through 50lb sack of feed about every other month when I'm not supplementing with grass clippings, dandelions, and table scraps.
One doe rabbit can produce around 350lbs of meet a YEAR, using 2/3 less commercial feed than beef. And the manure can be added directly to your gardens, doesn't need to be composted like chicken or cattle manure.
It's the perfect food, not sure why it went out of favor in the US after WWII.
