The first concern now, is whether, finishing them on a mixture of pellets and pasture has proved worthwhile , ie: they taste like rabbit and not chicken. (Chicken being a more efficient feed converter would make more economic sense)..see future blog for our ark raised meat chickens.
I have given my good friend Bill, a connoisseur of wild bunnies, one of the aforementioned,and he will do an assessment.
The Giblets, ( heart, kidneys and liver) have been frozen to make, I hope, a gourmet rabbit pate'. The skins frozen, to be tanned and made into a magnificent patchwork quilt! ( Don't hold your breath, but a blog will follow, if and when this occurs).
I do of course have breeding trios for sale. These are CSIRO, Growtec bred, and a hybrid of NZ white, Californian and Belgian Giants, hence the many colours of their coats.
