How to Raise Rabbits: Everything You Need to Know, Updated & Revised Third Edition (FFA) (Paperback)
In this freshly updated third edition of How to Raise Rabbits, you'll find practical advice for raising any number of rabbits in any environment—rural or urban, one rabbit or twenty. Brother-sister writing duo Daniel and Samantha Johnson expertly walk readers through all the basics on breed types, housing and food requirements, shows, kit care, and general healthcare for the rabbit.
Rabbits are wonderful animals to raise, whether as pets or as livestock on a farm. They are especially great as starter animals for children who participate in rabbit shows.
Before you embark on owning one of these lovable critters, however, there's a lot you need to know—for instance, which of the forty-seven rabbit breeds is best for you? Licensed by the Future Farmers of America, the guidebooks in our acclaimed How to Raise series have helped countless first-time animal owners across the United States confidently care for their new companions.
With clear and informative instructions, fully illustrated with beautiful how-to photography, How to Raise Rabbits continues to be an essential primer for the newcomer to rabbit care and a classic on any rabbit lover's bookshelf.
