Hello everyone,

I'd love to share our journey of starting a suburban backyard rabbitry.  We were blessed with finding in excellent breeder that knows everything about rabbits for meat, sell, fodder, breeding, care, and how to also do some colony raising.  Enjoy the story!  We currently can't have "livestock" in our suburbia home...so we are learning the skills of raising rabbits as "pets" and we will be during full scale meat rabbits when we move on to our 7 acre homestead property this fall.

We've been strongly considering rabbits here in Central Texas. It looks like they've got a permanent outdoor home. How do you deal with the summer heat?

Well we are currently using this big fan...while also catching some mosquitos.  But in the end...I think we are just going to keep them in the shade, with a fan, and then....just breed for heat tolerance.

Even before the rabbits, I'm taking note of that mosquito solution for where we have my nieces trampoline.
