Rabbits for Flesh and Fur - With Information on Breeding, Varieties, Housing and Other Aspects of Rabbit Farming on a Smallholding

J. O. Baker

"Rabbits for Flesh and Fur" is a classic guide to cuniculture, the farming of rabbits for pleasure or profit. It deals with every aspect from selection and breeding to care, housing, and beyond. With simple explanations and step-by-step instructions, this illustrated guide is ideal for those with breeding and maintaining rabbits for whatever reason. Contents include: "Few Factors Favouring Rabbit Breeding", "Varieties to Breed", "Recommended Varieties and Breeds", "Fur and Meat", "Meat only Housing", "The Care and Feeding of Rabbits", "Breeding and Rearing", "Costs and Returns", "Establishment Costs", "The Keeping of Records", "Working to a Time-table", and "Conclusion". Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on cuniculture.
