Hi all from Wisconsin

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Green2Rabbits » Tue Jun 02, 2020 8:58 pm


Starting out raising meat rabbits. I'm currently living in the city but my landlord is nice enough to let me build a hutch on my patio. As of now I only have a female Satin but in the coming months will have a doe and buck American Chinchilla (not in related). Trying to raise them responsibly and will tan their hide also.

Thanks! Yeah I mistakenly was on a forum before mainly for pet rabbits. Most people were kind and warned me. One person I must have upset because she left me a reply about not wanting her daughter to get rich off breeding her rabbits bla....bla...bla. I tried to say mine is small scale and not going to sell them. However one guy was nice and directed me over here. Glad he did.

Aloha Green2Rabbits,

Inquiring minds want to know - how are we going to get rich from breeding rabbits? Any tips you have on that subject would be great! And why wouldn't you want to sell them? Breed lots, sell a few, eat a few and there's still hopefully some left to make more.

Hi!
I didn't say get rich of selling them the other user said something like I don't want my daughter to read about this and think she can get rich of selling them. IDK since I was new to that forum I figured I wouldn't try to change her mind. I don't think its possible or I would be getting a home of my own WAY sooner out in the country away from the city. :lol:
I don't have space to house many rabbits. (4 cages as of now maybe another 4 come fall)
Since I am literally housing them in a pole shed :? like design right along the apartment on my deck I don't have much space. The structure I built is 8ft 5" long, 30ish inches wide, with a slanted roof built under my ORIGINAL porch metal roof. So it sorta blends in from a distance and is mostly covered by the original roof over my door. However the back is 90 percent closed off with the 10 percent exposed able to board up in rain/snow. The one side is blocked by my house and the opposite side is boarded but able to be removed in hot weather. The long middle that's not opposite to the side 90 percent blocked is wide open exposed full air and mostly blocked to rain.
However in a driving rain I have problems and come winter will get a tarp or something to block it off.

Oh and the cages are double stacked with a slanted pc of corrugated plastic between as a poop/pee diverter. Bottom cage is about 3.5 to 4 ft off ground.

I literally built it to fit in that area. Since my land lord is cool and gave me the go ahead I tried to make it as hidden as possible but also nice looking to the eye and didn't just use a bunch of free pallet wood I could have got at work. Lol.

Sorry way more than you asked but yeah.
I decided not to argue with crazy and jumped ship to this page where it has a dedicated meat rabbit area.

Limited space plus possible liabilities if someone claimed a rabbit from me made them sick. However my friend already asked for an adult rabbit for his dog......I said I think PETA would burn down the apartment complex if they heard that lol. (His dog has a HIGH prey drive)

Yes, be careful..
There are a lot of "crazies" out there..
Don't let people know about your "rabbitry", unless you are completely sure of them..
For some unknown reason, this "rabbit thing" has become a "rallying cry",
for "animal rights" activists.
Many "rabbit people" have been attacked, had their rabbits stolen, killed. or set free.
wish you the best...

Thanks it sort of is set back but others can see it. I was going to add some cool signs or bumper stickers but it is more money I don't need to spend AND it's more flashy and likely to stick out.
My dad asked if I was going to get locks for the cage doors and I said no since you can cut a cage and it's a pain to open each time but not a far fetched idea.
I actually have some motion detectors I use at night so if any predators 2 or 4 legged come to the cage I will know just in case. Thanks though can't wait till I can get back out in the country.

Sorry you lost me a bit. If you mean watching for animal activists from messing with your rabbits it depends. Where I live people walk on all sides of my building so the less flashy and the less people that know the safer. If you aren't in the city with business that bring people over then you are safer.

I mean I'm trying to think ahead because I never know if when I'm gone someone is going to "free" the rabbits or poison the drinking water.

More of a precaution but in a near by town 15 miles away about 8 years back a bunch of PETA people set free all the mink at the mink ranch. Rabbits would probably die and only hurt the owner but those mink could go and destroy the local wildlife. I don't remember the details but it was just short of 100 mink all set free at once. And that was on a side street in the country so I'm just trying to think ahead.

Better safe than sorry. Plus some people are shady in my area so the motion sensor also let's me know if someone is at my door or close by. I had an incident with someone on something coming toward my door late at night a couple years back. I won't get into it here but those motion sensors serve a dual purpose.

Like the earlier post said the less people that know about it the better. Some people don't want any animal in cages or being for profit.
