Does anyone know anything about this? We recieved a flyer from the National Marketing Service and we are very interested, but wonder if it is too good to be true.

I just got a 3 month old Rex Rabbit for the 4-H club, and I was wanting to know if there may be a specific age to showing adult rabbits and if so how old do they have to be?
My e-mail might be wrong.

If it sounds too good to be true it probably isn't true. Think about it, if it was that good, why isn't everyone doing it? Including whoever sent you the junk mail.

Don't get me wrong, it goes without saying that caring for rabbits isn't a walk in the park. It will have its ups and downs. They are claiming to have a solid buyers market and need people to raise these rabbits for the buyers. Supposedly, their hair is shedless, smooth and shiny like a mink. There are 20 different color combinations, and depending on the size and color, you get $25.00 - $100.00 per 2 -3 month old rabbit. The brochure says they guarentee $25.00. The start-up costs is less than most animals, but is still substantial, atleast for us. We own 120 acres and have 6 kids. We are trying to keep me home with the kids. Most of our land is woods, 2 creeks, and 1 swamp. We have 12 sows and 4 cows, but do not have enough pasture for much more cattle and to increase the hogs would take a new building. We are farrowing in a 3-sided barn now as it is for half of the sows. We were hoping that this would be a good way to make $500. - $1000. per month with minimal outlay. Anyone have any first hand knowledge of this?

I raise rex rabbits for showing, but i do know Rex rabbits do shed, there are 15 different colors but some are harder to find than others. If you plan to sell them for meat they go for about $1 a puond or less, and a 2-3 month old weighs about 4 lbs. Unless it is a super show rabbit, there is no way you'd get more than $30 on a local basis.
I hope this information helps.

Yeah, Rex's do shed. I have a breeding pair (white with black spots) and they shed about as much as any other rabbit does. Their fur is just shorter and finer.

Hey, anybody got any tips on breeding Rexes?

Hey , I just want to say that you guys need to be reading books and sites online to gain knowledge on breeding and other Rex topics. You can learn factual and correct information this way. So please go and read instead of asking anyone online for help.

Hi! I was woundering about these rabbits! Whens the best time to breed them. How long does it take to breed them. About how long until they are born? Im selling them for 4-H and I need to know this stuff because we are going to breed them and sell the babies. Do you have any suggestions for me? If you do please e-mail me. Also, whats the best way to kill a rabbit? I have to and I wanna know if there's any way that I could maybe do it without having to watch since my parents won't do it. Please e-mail me your suggestions soon. Im waiting and woundering. Thank you!

Mother Hubbard- Cut the bravo sierra and git real real fast!

Last scam I heard on this was raising rabbits on the porch, "cosmetics" everywhere, and chickens in the attic.

Recommend you stick to local proven ag producer situations. Good luck, IHank
