Just had a litter of rabbits born today. They are doing well and very active for being 6 hours old. Will keep the best female and butcher the rest.

Our kid rabbits found a crack into the guinea pig pen, and most of the guinea pigs couldn't tell they were amongst them, and sure enough the baby rabbits would sneak up to the food and clean it out and then go all ninja back through the unsuspecting crowd but they had full bellies so they couldn't get back out. It was funny.

Updated picture - they are almost 3 weeks old.
They look both cute AND delicious!

When I was a kid my Dad raised Netherland dwarf's. He had a few others I can't remember. Our German neighbor made us up so really good rabbit goulash a few times. I remember under the pens he also had his worm farm. Guess my Dad was a prepper and didn't even know it.

I think rabbits are the perfect prepper livestock. the are quit and easy to hid, eat vegetation you pull up as weeds or food scraps and multiple like Rabbits. very easy care so anyone can do it
LOL!

Need to get back into the rabbits ..... easy to raise. Years ago started with 6 and a couple years later had a barn full. A typical 28 -32 day gestation cycle with several to a litter will fill a freeze with 7-8 week old fryers real quick.

Not to mention, they are kinda cute.

But remember, unless you like to witness castration, always put the female in the buck's cage for breeding and not the other way around.
