How hard can it be to sex a rabbit, it should be simple, take a baby bunny turn it upside down, see if it has boy bits or girl bits, next.... But for some reason we are terrible at sexing. Recently we sold a trio of meat rabbits, so it was pretty important for the buyer that we got it right. Go out to the shed look at rabbit bottoms, no idea. Go into the house watch Youtube video on rabbit sexing. Can't be that hard, back to the shed. "Is that a slit or a round bit? Back to house, Google rabbit sexing tutorial, study hard, examine pictures, check out the pyramid shaped bits the conical bits, check out the bit to press not too hard. Finally we got it and off went two does and a buck. Full refund if we still messed it up.
What would we have done without the internet? Seems everyone I know who are trying their hands at farming either for the first time, or farming something new, tend to use youtube quite a bit. haha.
