    If I wanted to can 30 pints of rabbit meat without the bones, how many average sized, average butcher aged meat rabbits would I need?

    I never canned rabbit, when I raised them, I always froze them. My suggestion would be to boil a rabbit and see how much of it you could pack in a jar, then times 30. You'll have your answer.

    I'm trying to see if it is a feasible idea to raise meat rabbits. I don't have any to experiment with and am hoping someone with experience can share their knowledge with me.
