Ty Asks – What are some best ways to set up a rabbitry? I have three does and a buck in separate outdoor hutches at this time. I have been receiving large amounts of request for rabbit meat. So in order to capitalize I want to expand my operation. I was thinking of building a small rabbit specific barn but i have no clue where to start. What should the dimensions be, what type of ventilation should i use, what kind of watering system works best, should I make it climate controlled, etc. And how to do all of this without breaking the bank?

The Homestead Life:

A segment where each episode I share something that’s better in my life because of homesteading.

I really enjoy providing for the homestead through fishing. Fishing has always been fun for me and I’ve always ate some of what I caught long before homesteading but now I not only look at it as recreation but as an act of provision for the homestead. It has become another way to put healthy food in the home and it’s a good feeling to know your accomplishing something meaningful for yourself and your family.
