Why do we have so much trouble killing fluffy things? There is no getting around two very important issues with rabbits. They are terribly cute and soft. They are also delicious and their pelts make great hats, gloves and other types of clothes for the winter. Of course, you must slaughter each cute little creature that you wish to eat or skin. That poses problems to some and makes them a bit squeamish about the prospect of keeping rabbits.
Rabbits are not chickens. They do not produce eggs. The great news about rabbits is they can even be kept indoors. Recently I read an article about apartment homesteading and rabbits were the animal included in this article. They are really the perfect option for this. Of course, if you use your land, you can have a much bigger colony.
Even if you get passed the idea of slaughter or maybe pass that off to a spouse, you will find there are lots of decisions to make. You will need to look over the great section on breeds and decide which best fits your needs and land. You also must decide how to raise your rabbits. There are two very different options. Bottom line: There are incredible benefits that go along with raising rabbits and this is a great starter guide.
