Rabbits
Overview

Weather you see rabbits as a soft and cuddly pet or a business opportunity, the rabbit project is flexible for your interest. Beginning level rabbits include activities that include selection, handling, breeds, parts, management, equipment, feeding, health, breeding and kindling. At the intermediate level through hands on activities you will learn how to select, judge, give oral reasons, show rabbits, tattoo, keep records and detect diseases. In the advanced level of the rabbit project you will have the opportunity to learn more about breeding, genetics, culling, determining pregnancy, designing a rabbitry, anatomy, teaching others, and registering a rabbit, and marketing your product. The rabbit pattern is a great model for identifying parts, determining sex, checking for disqualifications, practicing handling, trimming nails, showing, and many other management practices, and can be found as a supplemental material on the project tab.
