Looks like 3 cages there, how big are they?
I would like to get meat rabbits, but DH won't eat rabbit. I grew up with it and really like it. I don't know what there is to not like about rabbit meat, it really has a mild flavor.

If DH won't eat rabbit, but you will... and you are willing to do all the work yourself, what's to keep you from raising a few meat rabbits? It could just turn into a nice little side business for you. As times get tougher, I can see where having some rabbit meat to barter might be a very good thing. I grow lots of things in the garden that hubby won't eat.
