I am located in the Washington DC/NOVA area. I was wondering if anyone in the area would be interested in some barter/trading? I raise rabbits and am expecting a litter due next week. They should be ready for slaughter in 8-10 weeks. Would anyone want to trade something for rabbit meat? Or live rabbits to start your own litter? Message me for more info.

Really, are rabbits ready for slaughter in 10 weeks? Dang chickens take 16 weeks or so before they lay the first egg. I've skinned and ate a few rabbits and as they say "taste like chicken".

Yeah, most rabbits are ready for slaughter at 8 weeks, but I always give them a couple more weeks to put on more weight. After 8 weeks they are fully weaned, and the cost/ratio to feed them versus cost per pound gets high after 10 weeks. Fresh rabbit is excellent. I purchased a store bought rabbit a while back and it was terrible.

Taste like chicken - only teasing. Rabbit is very good but you can't survive on rabbit alone for very long - not enough fat to meet our bodies requirements.
