Meat Rabbit Question
We are starting to raise meat rabbits, and have been debating how often to "harvest" and breed them. I know that "fryers" are usually harvested at 10-12 weeks for commercial operations, but what about home use? It seems like an extra 8 weeks almost doubles the size of the rabbit- has anyone looked into what it costs feed-wise to keep rabbits the extra 8 weeks vs the extra size of the rabbit? Time is not an issue- I have to feed/care for Mom and Pop anyway, so a fryer pen is not extra work. Also, I've read a lot of conflicting reports on how often to breed. What is the general group consensus? Thanks everyone.
