The cost of raising one lb of beef is supose to equal to 6 lbs of rabbit. If your rabbit is producing, you can adv. up to 32 bunnies a year (I have read). Quality of meat, easy of raising in urban area, low cost upkeep, small area needed, no regulations on a local level on most cases. This is why I have 3 does and 2 bucks, NZ giants & Calif Whites. Have them in a 10x10 shed, individual cages, clean area, and easy to maintain.
Each hole is 24x24 The cages themselves hang from the PVC which allows the sides to extend further from the walls of the cages. The pans are made from wood, covered in a heavy gauge plastic to protect them. They are a single pan per level to keep rabbits from peeing in between trays onto rabbits below. They are attached by drawer slides. To clean them I just pull out the "drawer" lift out puppy pads, wipe down the plastic, replace the puppy pads or incontinence pads.
