I am looking to do 4-h meat rabbits this year and I have a few questions. I have never done rabbits before. When do I need to have the rabbits? How many would I get? Does or bucks ( I have NO interest in breeding?) How much monthly do you send on a pen of meat rabbits?
THANKS!!

One thing about 4H is it varies from location to location. Even within states county rules vary. Our county you have to raise your own meatpens, owning at least the doe. 6 class breeds only. And they are need to be 10 weeks old, 3.5 to 5.5 pounds each for a meatpen of 3. We don't have a fryer class unfortunately, which is a single rabbit.
