Every business has its own advantages and disadvantages. And so does the rabbit business also. Let's quickly check out some of the advantages and disadvantages,
- Does not requires a big land for production

- You can get a good income with constant efforts
And Sad face:
- Investment for shelter and other things such as cages, equipment.
- Problems in handling records, pedigree - Don’t worry, we have a solution for that!
- Rabbit odour
Now that we know the advantages and disadvantages let's dive in and know what are the three important things to know before kick-starting your rabbit business
1. Deciding the amount you are going to invest and the size of your rabbitry
It’s always better to start with a less budget when you do something new. We recommend you to start with 20 does and 3 bucks not more than that. It will also be great if you can grab some real-time quick advice from people who are already in the business for quite some time. After getting done with this, decide the size of your rabbit business.
2. The most important thing, shelter and other things for your cute rabbits
Yes. Cages are very important and help you to manage easily in future as well. There are many varieties available in the market but go with which one looks more comfortable. Also, remember that it must be easy and convenient to clean as well. Most of the time, people go with a wire cage for doe and litter. Don’t forget to get a separate cage for isolation if your rabbits fall sick or for breeding as well.
3. And a tool to manage all of them
It’s 2020 and you still can’t follow up with papers and pens for records. There are many tools available in the market but not really how people wanted. A tool must-have features like breeding, customised breed chain, pedigree, ledger, health analysis and many other things.
