Martin has entered the world of the meat rabbit. After meeting someone in the local village of Braidwood who was growing them, he thought he would try raising some. Not content with a few local meat rabbits,he has sourced some bred by the CSIRO for their excellent feed conversion and productivity, and had them flown in. We are now waiting for the first litter of baby bunnies (the real first lot died of cold while I was looking after them when Martin was in Mount Isa). We have set up a heat lamp and have the pens organised to ensure the best survival outcome. If we are successful we will be able to supply ourselves and our friends with rabbit for the table. I am also thinking it would be good to tan the hides and make a quilt as they have the most beautiful fur colours.
