Be careful how you position the rabbit in the hopper popper, dunno if it's just our homemade version but some rabbits seem to get a damaged/broken jaw as we pull to dislocate the neck. Probably aren't positioned right but wanted to make you aware as I wasn't certain if the people wanting skulls are including the jaw.

Congrats on the wiggly babies, and my best recommendation for you is to try to get sales lined up before they are 8 weeks. Not allowing them to leave until then, but just lining up the sales so you know you have a buyer and aren't feeding a ton of rabbits forever until you decide to eat them.

Excellent advice thank you. I am already putting out feelers for buyers, and will start advertising and taking reservations at 4 weeks.

Momma's litter of pedigreed pets is about 5 weeks old today. They are absolutely adorable, and I already have 3 reserved! The buyer requested 3 females. Hopefully in a week I will be able to sex them and send him some pictures. Then at 7 weeks I will tattoo them and 8 weeks off to their new homes! There are 7 in all.

I processed Maple's last litter a little over a week ago. The hopper popper was great and they yielded some really nice meat. I think I will get both does pregnant within the next week, aiming for a litter of pedigreed christmas bunnies for sale and a litter of meat bunnies for deep winter time.
